When you plan to install solar panel, battery and inverter, then you must be wondering about how to decide the capacity of these components. On the basis of our practical experience, below guide will help you.

The best way to calculate load calculation is to use best quality clamp meter. Let’s assume for this calculation we will use a clamp meter that will support 600A . Using this clamp meter, we can calculate power consumption of home, office, shop, school, medical clinic, & petrol pump, etc. Follow the below steps to Calculate the power consumption:

1. Turn on all the appliances
2. Use clamp meter in phase wire of electric meter

While you use clamp meter, it shows power consumption in Amp. Such as 5Amp, 10Amp, & 20Amp, etc. Indian grid voltage range starts from 220V-240V. But you must check voltage as well using this clamp meter.

Load Calculation = 220V * 5 A

= 1100W

Step 2: Backup Time

In above steps, I have calculated the power consumption. On the basis of this calculated power consumption, we should know how many hours you may want to run appliances after power cut. If your answer will be 4 to 5 hrs. That means:

Battery Storage = Total Load * Backup Time

= 1100W * 4 hrs.

= 4400W

Step 3: Battery Capacity

In above steps, You will know about your required battery storage. There are two types of battery technology in India – lead acid battery & lithium battery. In lead acid battery, 150Ah lead acid battery is the most popular battery for homes and businesses. One 150Ah battery stores 1300 Watt. That means, you need

Battery Capacity = Required Battery Storage / Battery Storage

= 4400W / 1300W

= 4 Batteries

Generally, 4 batteries of 150Ah comes in 48V.

In case of lithium battery, you need only one battery that comes with 5kWh, 48V.

Step 4: Inverter Capacity

In above steps, you will know both the battery capacity and voltage. According to battery voltage, capacity, and power consumption. In simple language, I need here a 48V & 5kW inverter.

= 1100W + 1100W * 20%

= 1100W + 220W

= 1320W

That means, you need around 1.3kW inverter capacity.

Step 5: Solar Panel Capacity

Finally, you need to calculate the solar panel capacity. We always know that solar panels generates DC voltage (22V to 50V). In simple terms,

Solar Panel Capacity = 3 * Battery Capacity

= 3 * 600Ah

= 1800Watt

That means, you need 1.8kW capacity of solar panels and the highest wattages of solar panels in India is around 540W. If you choose these solar panels, then you will need around 4 solar panels for charging your battery as well as run your home loads.

Hii
In 96 volt inverter how many solar panels or what power can we use

Nonnyblack

Hi!
What’s the advantage of half cut solar panel over traditional single-face solar panel?

Nonnyblack

Hi!
I’ve got a question: how many 200ah lead-acid batteries will 24(440w) half cut solar panels charge?

Abdifatah Ahmed

What are the main reasons a hybrid or off-grid solar system cannot operate without batteries or a startup generator that operate with the PV system during sunshine not only for storage and backup during outages?
