  2. question101 renewable - lift and head flow for solar pumps
    Pump manufacturers are documenting the performance of their pumps in several ways: LIFT & HEAD are used to rate the ability to move water vertically while FLOW reflects the quantity of liquid that can be moved in a given amount of time. Liquid Pumps Terminology:~ Discharge Head:~ This is the ve ...

  3. questionGrundfos Submersible Pumps Selection
    Use the table below to choose a pump. The left column shows total head in feet and meters. The top row shows array wattage/number and suggested type of modules. Boxes show seasonal pump performance and maximum flow. Select the row with the head (total lift) that most closely matches your applic ...

  4. question101 renewable - Tracking Solar Panel I-V Curve
    Traking the I-V curve of an existing PV-Panel in a solar installation is paramount in obtaining an accurate diagnostic of what may impede the optimal output and the deviance of the plant's efficiency from the expected values. The focus is on the PV Fill Factor, the I-V Curve dependency of tempe ...

  5. questionCalculator - Tables of AWG wire sizes
    The larger the AWG number or wire guage, the smaller the physical size of the wire. The smallest AWG size is 40 and the largest is 0000 (4/0). AWG general rules of thumb - for every 6 gauge decrease, the wire diameter doubles and for every 3 gauge decrease, the cross sectional area doubles. >_ ...

  15. question101 renewable - pv plant cable seizing dc side
    It is important to use the correct DC wire to achieve maximum efficiency from the system and reduce hazards associated with overheating. Always keep your wire runs as short as practical to help prevent low voltage shutdowns and keep the DC breaker from nuisance tripping (or open fuses) because ...

  16. question101 renewable - small turbine dumping load calculation
    [Project calculation notes:] Step 1: Determine the number of resistive dump loads. To determine the number of resistive dump loads (number of active resistors) for a small wind turbine system we have to consider some values for our system components: Battery bank has following system voltage: ...

  17. question101 renewable - dc disconnect short and fault current evaluation
    The National Electric Code, section 690.15, requires PV arrays to have a disconnecting means to isolate the inverter from the PV power source. DC Disconnects have to be able to quickly and safely extinguish the DC arc caused by disconnecting an array under load. DC arc it is more thermal damagi ...
