“How can we keep batteries from being overcharged by solar panels?”

 

Solar Plus Storage Systems are a revolution in the renewable energy industry. Their ability to not only capture but store energy from the sun allows for true grid integration. However, often times there is a voltage mismatch between the solar panels and the batteries. If left unchecked, then the batteries can sustain great damage. But how can we use our engineering mindsets to solve this? Well, what if we were to simply put in a form of control to regulate the incoming and outgoing voltage and current? This is the fundamental principle behind Solar Charge Controllers, almost a must-have for Solar Plus Storage Systems.
