Another super project by AM Solar:
A Hybrid energy system for a client in Northcliff, Johannesburg combining Wind Power and Photovoltaic (PV) Power into a neat Grid-Tied system.
The PV array sits quiet far from the battery bank and grid-tie inverter (Main Inverter), so we have inverted the DC power close to the array and fed the main inverter with a secondary AC power IN, therefore significantly reducing any losses in the feed. The PV inverter is an SMA Sunnboy inverter and the Main inverter (grid-tie) is a Victron inverter.
There is also battery bank connected to gives some backup power to the selected household load during a power failure/load shed.
Oh and Yes... there is enough wind on the site to supplement the PV array.
