Hybrid Solar System
Hybrid solar system combines the automatic charging to a off grid solar system when solar power is not available. These systems can either be described as off grid solar with utility backup power, or wind power or any alternative power backed up.
Some time grid tie system and back up solar system combination also called hybrid system.
Advantages of Hybrid Solar Systems
Hybrid solar systems are little more expensive than grid tied, on grid, or off grid solar systems. You don`t really need a backup generator in case of hybrid, and the capacity of your battery bank can be designed as per requirement.
Smart solar holds a lot of promise
The introduction of hybrid solar systems has opened up for many interesting innovations. New solar inverters let homeowners take advantage of changes in the utility electricity rates throughout the day.
Solar panels happen to output the most electrical power at noon – not long before the price of electricity peaks. Your home and electrical vehicle can be programmed to consume power during off-peak hours (or from your solar panels).
Consequently, you can temporarily store whatever excess electricity your solar panels in batteries, and put it on the utility grid when you are paid the most for every kWh.
Smart solar holds a lot of promise. The concept will become increasingly important as we transition towards the smart grid in the coming years.
Equipment for Hybrid Solar Systems
- Solar Inverters
- Charge Controller
- Battery Bank
- DC Disconnect (additional)
- Power Meter
- Distribution board
Hybrid System (Battery Based Grid Tie Inverter)
Definition: Hybrid solar systems utilize batter-based grid-tie inverters. These devices combine can draw electrical power to and from battery banks, as well as synchronize with the utility grid
Benefits: The bottom line is this: Right now, for the vast majority of homeowners, tapping the utility grid for electricity and energy storage is significantly cheaper and more practical than using battery banks and/or backup generators.
Hybrid System (Battery Based Solar Inverter)
Definition: Hybrid systems provide power to your load uninterruptedly so that in case if the grid is off it will charge to your batteries and will keep on your system accordingly.
Benefits: A mixtures of on grid & off grid allows you to maintain your electricity balance on both ways.
Hybrid System (Battery Based Solar-Wind Inverter)
Definition: Hybrid systems provide power to your load uninterruptedly so that in case if the grid is off it will charge to your batteries and will keep on your system accordingly. Wind can supply the power 24 x 7. It can get power from grid as well for battery charging.
Benefits: A mixtures of wind, solar, grid allows you to maintain your electricity balance on both ways.
