TSS will make sure your home or business solar electric or photovoltaic (PV) system is sized, sited, installed, and maintained correctly. This is essential for maximizing its energy performance.
There are several key factors when designing a solar PV system. One of the most important and the first step in designing a solar electric system is to find out the total power and energy consumption of all loads that need to be supplied by the solar PV system. TSS will ensure a Site Analysis has been completed to correctly design and ascertain the recommended solar panel, inverter and battery size.
For stand-alone systems, the inverter must be large enough to handle the total amount of Watts you will be using at one time. The inverter size should be 25-30% bigger than total Watts of appliances. In case of appliance type is motor or compressor then inverter size should be minimum 3 times the capacity of those appliances and must be added to the inverter capacity to handle surge current during starting.
For grid tie systems or grid connected systems, the input rating of the inverter should be same as PV array rating to allow for safe and efficient operation.
