Renewable Energy (RE) sources differ from conventional sources in that, generally they cannot be scheduled, they are much smaller than conventional power stations and are often connected to the electricity distribution system rather than the transmission system. The integration of such time variable ‘distributed’ or ‘embedded’ sources into electricity networks requires special consideration. This new book addresses these special issues and covers the following:The characteristics of c
Connects to a 12 volt battery and converts DC to AC pure sine wave for power on the go
Ideal for power failure emergencies and guarantees optimum compatibility with sensitive equipment, computers, motors, televisions and more
2000 Watts surge power, 1000 continuous power
Safety features include: an overload alarm and LED light, a soft start system, low battery shut down, DC input overload voltage, output overload, overload temperature, short circuit shut down, and a high speed cooling fan
System includes: two 110V household electrical outlets, a DC/AC power inverter remote control modular connector cable and key chain remote
The Sunforce 1000 Watt Pro Series Pure Sine Wave Inverter converts DC power into clean, stable AC power. Excellent for powering home appliances directly from your 12V battery, this inverter will supply stable power to run small electronic tools, air pumps, electronic doors, small motors and refrigerators that a modified sine wave inverter cannot. Pure Sine Wave inverters provide clean power with very low harmonic distortion, no static or humming noise. With a peak surge power of 2000 Watts and c

Question by velvet_an_steel: Setting up an extremly remote 3 part hybrid power system?
I’m in the planning stages. Nothing bought yet. This is a low budget system using common house tools. If needed I can rent. Town is 40 miles away. I’m really trying to avoid that.
The goal: set up a hybrid system using water, wind & solar. I’m planning on using 3 separate charge controllers. Plan to use shunt controllers for the hydro and wind.
Solar: I am planing on starting with a 60 watt kit w/ 7 amp controller to start with.
Wind: I’m planning on purchasing a small 400 watt turbine. The site is on the side of a mountain, next to a nice clear path that has been cut for a pipeline in Eastern Oklahoma. Wind is always there.
Battery bank: I’m currently planning on starting out with 2 or 4 – 105 Amp-hour batteries.
Hydro: The unknown part that I’m asking about is for the hydro. How do I know what size of controller I need for that?
Battery bank: I’m currently planning on starting out with 2 or 4 105 Amp-hour batteries. Need urls to cheapest reputable place on line to buy shunt controllers.
Answer by puedodharma Wow, you do sound like you’re on your way to something remarkable and the possibility of being able to send your power back to the grid and charge them for it
But for those of us who don’t know, where are you finding this cheap technology? I was under the impression that most of the alternative stuff was fairly expensive.
