Summary

Summary: 
A Korean SME has developed a PV-based power supply and storage system for small-scale power demand in unreliable-grid or off-grid such as camping cars, shelters, public service facilities, outdoor activity locations. The company is looking for partners under the distribution agreement or commercial agency agreement.

Description

Description: 

Electricity is indispensable for modern life, even in an off-grid or at independent facilities separated from the power grid where a stable power supply is not available. To gain access to reliable electricity in off-grid locations, the Korean company has developed a PV-based power supply and storage system that can be easily installed in an off-grid environment, such as remote public service facilities or outdoors.

The developed product is provided in two types:
- Starter pack consists of a solar panel and a main system battery pack.
- Expansion pack with an additional solar panel and battery pack for expansion installation.

The product has the following features as below.

Power generation & storage capacity:
• A 60W monocrystalline PV panel is included in the starter pack.
• Expendable power generation capacity up to 240W by adding 2 pcs of 120W PV Panels.
• Max storage capacity is 1,024wh with 512Wh*N by adding battery packs (The storage capacity can be extended as much as the user needs by adding battery packs).
• When connected to the on-grid, battery pack charging gets activated when the photovoltaic energy generation is not available.

Battery pack:
• 12.8V, 40Ah LFP (Lithium Iron Phosphate) battery pack is included in the starter pack and the battery pack is expandable by adding an extra one.
• Easy to replace when the battery packs are needed to be exchanged.

Power supply or charging:
• DC 5V 2 ports including 1 USB port for mobile device quick charging with max 2Ah output in total.
• DC 12V 2 ports with max. 10Ah output in total.
• DC 24V 2 ports including 1 port for the solar street lights supporting auto turn-on, turn-off, and dimming at sunrise and sunset, with max 15Ah output in total.

Installation:
• Selection of vertical, horizontal surface and pole mount are available according to the user's need and condition of the installation site.
• Adjustable bracket for the solar panel is included to maximize energy output by changing the angle to face the sun.

Product protection:
• IP 66 certified.
• Wind resistance of up to 50m/s when installed.
• Sanded and anodized aluminium enclosure and installation brackets to prevent it from corrosion.
• Airtight housing built by aluminium enclosures, gasket seal closures, and ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) covers.
• Ribs of aluminium enclosures widening surface area for easy dissipation of internal heat.

The Korean SME is now seeking a distribution partner or commercial agency to sell PV-based power supply and storage systems.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
⁻ Modularized PV panel, main system, and battery pack enable users to effortlessly expand power generation and storage capacity by adding a new panel and battery packs to the current system. ⁻ It is possible to mount the system and PV module on vertical/horizontal surfaces and poles in accordance with the environment of the place and setting. ⁻ IP66 certified housing design which guarantees protection against intrusion, dust, water and is also designed with a heat transfer system to protect the product by dissipating the internal heat. ⁻ Installation bracket design for wind resistance is applied to protect the product against strong wind. ⁻ Dual MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) achieves optimum power generation efficiency by processing multiple photovoltaic panels in parallel. Even if the solar conditions of each solar panel are different depending on the installation environment, dual MPPT optimizes the solar power generation efficiency of each panel. ⁻ Integrated charging management control regulates charging from solar power generation and grid connection. It can prioritize charging when connected to the solar panel and the power grid simultaneously.
