Solar PV enhancer / automatic cleaner

332 views 1 year ago
Having discovered that cooler panels give more power generation when the sky is clear, i developed an automatic cleaning and cooler device. Simply put, it is a large 800 liter water butt with a pump submerged in it. Attached is a series of hoses. One goes up under the panels and comes out at the top of array to spray cold water over the cells. This increases output by as much as 5% compared to un-cooled systems. The system we use has a web interface so we can monitor 2 systems at the same time to make a direct comparison. This video also shows the output loss from an overhead electrical wire. Any shade, anything at all will have a negative impact on a solar array. For more, follow me @TheSolarShed or like my fb page http://www.facebook.com/Sec...
