Hybrid solar systems use both solar and non-solar resources to generate electricity. This article discusses the advantages of hybrid solar systems, such as improved reliability and efficiency.
What is a hybrid solar system?
A hybrid solar system is a solar power system that uses both solar panels and batteries to store energy. This system is helpful for people who want to use solar power but don’t have enough space to install large solar panels.
Why use a SAKO hybrid solar system?
Using a hybrid solar system has many hidden advantages over conventional solar systems. For example, hybrid systems use solar panels and batteries to store energy. This allows you to power when there is no sunlight or uses electricity to stay connected when there is no sunlight.
Hybrid systems require less maintenance than conventional solar systems.
How does a hybrid solar system work?
Hybrid solar systems combine the best properties of both energy systems. Conventional solar systems use solar panels to collect solar energy and convert it into electricity. Hybrid solar systems use solar panels and batteries to store electricity. When the sun comes out, the panels generate electricity, and the batteries store it. The battery will provide power if the panel cannot be used on an overcast day.
The main advantage of a hybrid solar system is that it is flexible and can be maintained on sunny or cloudy days.
Hidden Advantages of Hybrid Solar Systems
- Users of hybrid power supply systems can improve their use of renewable energy. Since standalone renewable energy systems are often built for times when the least amount of energy is produced, they are over-capable during other times. As a result, excess energy produced during times of high solar radiation may be lost.
- It has a high degree of system viability. In an autonomous system, using renewable energy may result in a load power deficit situation when the system’s power supply is insufficient to fulfill the load demand. As a result, the rate of load power shortfall will be significantly decreased by adopting a hybrid system.
- More adaptability when matching loads. The hybrid system may be applied to a wider range of load systems after being utilized since the diesel generator can supply more power right away. Examples include bigger AC loads, shock loads, etc. Additionally, it can better match the system’s power generation and load.
