Glen Morris has recorded a 13 x 1 hour YouTube series on Solar & Battery Training (Free).
Paul Wilson from Arvio explaining how the Kilowatt Labs supercapacitor works.
Fotakis & Rachel working on the PV water heater demonstration system. Top is the EasyWarm VoV system and directly below is the new SolarEdge 3.6kW Immersion Heater diverter.
Adam and Saxton working on the Goodwe BP (dc-dc) converter that allows retrofitting of battery storage to an existing PV system easy by connecting storage to the PV d.c. side of the system.
Scott and Ian installing an extra 6kWh of GenZ lithium-ion battery storage to the Tiny House’s “GiantPower system”.
Phil Crotty from Victron Energy showing the students the features and advantages of the Victron system.
Norm Anderson, CEO of Energy Smart Water, talking about their MyPV d.c. water heating system and the new AC.Thor 6kW a.c. power diverter.
Ian fitting off the Victron Lynx 1000A busbar system for connecting batteries in parallel.
Matt & Munaz installing an off-grid SMA Sunny Island 8.0H-11 battery inverter with a SolarEdge SE3500 grid-connect inverter set to respond to frequency dependant power reduction signalling from the Sunny Island.
Coen installing the new (second one ever made) SolaX X3 Hybrid inverter. This unit is the 10kW variant. These amazing inverters can be connected to up to a 500V d.c. battery and have a total of ten inverters operating in unison using just a single power meter connected to the master unit. Unbalanced 3phase load support is also unique.
Ian checks out the Neuton Power VRLA 600Ah lead-acid battery pack.
I love how Paul tells the story of energy storage, “once upon a time we used to use old technologies like lead and lithium, now we use super capacitors”.
It really does feel like super capacitors have appeared as a viable option for hybrid applications, and with some pretty awesome specifications.
Every battery has to have an edge and SimpliPhi Power has many: 15 years experience with lithium battery manufacture and deployment; adoption by the US Department of Defence for extreme environments; and the reliable choice for location power for many top film productions (Avatar).
Gary from MILSolar chats to Glen Morris about their new 5kW grid-connect inverter, designed and built in Melbourne, Victoria.
