2kw Solar Generator
Before we talk about 2KVA ELINA Solar Generator, let’s have a bit knowledge of how electricity are being generated.
The heart of most power plants is a turbine generator. This device creates a current when it turns, transforming mechanical energy into electrical energy.
Wind farms use large fan blades attached to turbine generators to catch the wind, converting the natural energy of moving air to electricity.
Traditional power plants burn coal or gas to heat water, and once the water comes to a boil, the resulting steam flows through pipes and turns the turbine generator.
Solar thermal plants use a series of mirrors to collect and intensify the sun’s rays to produce the necessary heat without the emissions created by burning fuel.
A solar power generator uses the sun’s energy to create electricity.
Photovoltaic panel converts sunlight directly into electrical current,
A solar thermal generator uses the sun’s heat to create electricity.
This technology have no carbon dioxide emission Unlike the traditional power generation which burns coal or natural gas thereby polluting the air with carbon dioxide emissions.
The above form of power generations are in a large scale but we need something that’s mobile which is the reason in the market today, you will see all sorts of fuel, diesel or gas generator (whatever you may call it) of any size. A Petrol or Diesel generator converts the chemical (petrol or diesel) energy into mechanical energy and then into electrical energy.
This possible because of the engine and an alternator.
The petrol or diesel combusts in the engine, turning the rotor in the alternator.
The rotor is a coil of copper wire, the copper wire spins past stationary magnets. As copper wire passes over magnets, the magnets induce a slight electrical charge in the wire. This is done very fast and a significant amount of electricity is generated. What goes inside the generator is so complex that a layman might not understand. A lot of parts inside the generator moving while electricity is being generated by burning the petrol or diesel
Don’t forget how hazardous carbon dioxide emitting from the generator can be and the noise.
Don’t get me wrong, there are benefits associated to petrol or diesel generators, they can really be very small looking and still put out a large amount of electricity. Most of them are very easy to operate and get going all you need doing is to fill up the petrol or diesel tank, pull the cord or press the starter button and you got the power needed. As long as you can keep putting petrol or diesel in it, it’ll keep running and putting out a lot of power and because they are mass-produced and simple to build, they are very cheap compare a solar generator of the same ability
We are aware of climate change due to pollen, aeroallergen levels are also higher in extreme heat and these can trigger asthma, which affects around 300 million people around the world.
The ongoing temperature increases and the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide due to burning of fossils fuels by all these generators and other greenhouse gasses had increased tremendously.
Heat and Pollution are getting worst all around the world especially in developing Countries thereby putting health in great danger. Respiratory and Cardiovasucler diseases are associated with air pollution.
Millions of Children die every year in the developing world because of pollution from burning petrol, diesel and gasses.
Seeing Children dying every blessed day in developing countries due to Carbon Dioxide Emission from Generators, other heat related illnesses, is a breath taking.
Carbon dioxide emissions from generators is causing people’s life especially the children and the elderly, mostly in developing world. This is because the electricity supply that would have helped a bit about the situation is poorly provided by the authority. The public is spending fortune in providing the basic energy needed for their daily life, thereby killing themselves gradually.
Some African countries has become dumping ground of generators of all kind. Many find it very difficult to sleep at night because of noise pollution from these generators. Carbon dioxide emission from these generators is wrecking its own havoc on the well being of these people.
In order to minimise the use of petrol or diesel generators and combat carbon dioxide emission, pace9 have brilliantly design a robust 2kva solar generator of its kind ELINA to save the planet and save lives
ELINA Solar Generator are made up of Photovoltaic (PV) Panels, Batteries, Charge regulator, and Inverter.
The PV Panels convert Sunlight into Electricity and sends it off to the Charge Regulator.
The Charge Regulator pumps the Electricity into the Batteries and stops it when they are fully charged.
The Inverter kicks in, takes the DC (direct current) Electricity from the Batteries and converts it into AC (alternating current) Electricity. This is the Electricity you need to power your home appliances just like you use your petrol or diesel generators.
It’s simple as that.
No moving parts but powerful Electricity is generated to power your entire home appliances
No petrol or diesel
No Carbon Dioxide emission – pollution
Using ELINA solar generator, we have to understand the amount of power this wonderful generator give per 24hr of the day and the amount of power our home appliances consume per 24hr of the day..
If we can have bit knowledge of a simple electrical terminology, we can maximise the power generated from ELINA solar generator.
Let’s have a quick overview of amps, amp-hours and watts calculation:-
The unit of electricity current is measured in Amp (A), or Ampere.
The electrical current is the rate of flow – how much can flow at once. To calculate the peak Amps you’ll need, find out the Amp rating of all the devices you’d want to run, add them up, and then look for an Amp rating that could run them all at once. The calculation might looks like this: TV Amps + Fan Amps + Fridge Amps … = Total Amps
An Amp hour is how much electricity can flow from the battery at a usable voltage, typically for a 24 hour period. You’ll often see it expressed as something like 100Ah. Divide that 100Ah by 20 hours. You’re left with 5A. The calculation looks like this: 100Ah ÷ 20h = 5A for 20 hours
A Watt (W) is the unit of measure for the amount of work 1 Volt (V) of electricity at 1 Amp (A) can do per second. Here’s the calculation: 1 Volt x 1 Amp = 1 Watt
When considering Watts, be careful! Usually the Wattage rating that you first see is how many running Watts the generator can handle. Some electrical devices have a starting Watt rating that’s much higher than its running Wattage. For example Fridges.
Again, don’t bother yourself if you find it difficult for the calculation. Pace9 is there and always be there for you.
