MPPT Solar Charge Controller
MPPT solar charge controller functions as a voltage regulator, carrying the energy from the solar panels to the batteries at the correct voltage level. They help prevent the batteries from overcharging, short-circuiting, and block reverse currents.
Hinergy offers various types of PWM and MPPT solar charge controllers, available in different amperages to suit your applications. Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) charge controllers are good low-cost solutions for smaller systems that run on a parallel connection. Maximum Power Point Technology (MPPT) charge controllers maximize a panel's output under all weather conditions and work best with a series connection.
MPPT Solar Charge Controller: The MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) solar controller is the shining star of today's solar systems. These controllers actually detect the optimum operating voltage and amperage of the solar panel array and match that with the battery bank. The result is additional 15-30% more power out of your solar array versus a PWM solar controller. Although the MPPT solar charge controller is more expensive than its PWM counterpart, it is generally worth the investment for any solar electric system over 200 watts.
