You can use a charge controller to connect your solar panels or wind turbine. The charge controller converts the electricity so that you can charge your batteries. A charge controller is a very important component if you want to produce your own electricity. With a charge controller you can program exactly how you want to charge the batteries or other energy storage media and what voltage you want to supply the batteries with. With modern charge controllers like you can find them in our online shop, you have numerous other features that you can program.
Take a look around our store, there you will definitely find the right charge controller for your project.
If you have any questions about the right charge controller for your off-grid project, you can of course always contact our support or simply write your questions on the product page, our experts will answer your questions as soon as possibe.
If you want to find out more about energy generation with solar or wind power, then click on the banner and there you will find out how to proceed and how to wire everything.
PWM and MPPT charge controllers are both used extensively for charging batteries with solar energy. The PWM controller is basically a switch that connects a solar system to the battery. as
As a result, the voltage of the system is pulled down almost to the voltage of the battery. The MPPT controller is more complex (and expensive): it adjusts its input voltage so that the
Solar system provides maximum performance. Then this energy is converted to meet the varying voltage requirements of the battery and the load. In this way, it basically decouples the system and the battery voltage. For example, there can be a 12 volt battery on one side of the MPPT charge controller and panels connected in series to generate 36 volts on the other. It is generally accepted that an MPPT controller uses a PWM controller in a cold to moderately warm environment
Climate surpasses, whereas both controllers perform roughly the same in a subtropical to tropical climate.
We will consider the effects of temperature in more detail here and make a quantitative performance comparison of both controller topologies.
