Abstract: Solar energy is a vital that can make environment friendly energy more flexible and commercially widespread. As Sun is not available the whole day and during cloudy days, storage of electricity is required. Storage batteries are expensive and so are the solar photovoltaic (PV) panels. Hence, it is imperative that each stand-alone PV system is suitably designed depending on load (resistive) and autonomy requirements. In this work, 2 KW to 5 KW stand-alone photovoltaic systems for variable load requirements for charging of batteries is studied. Experiments are done to change the PV string size and number of strings to see its effect on actual charge delivery. The experimental setup has been made in which panel string size, batteries capacity and load may be varied.
Keywords: Batteries, Photovoltaic (PV) Panels.
