## How much Watts Solar Panel We need for our Home Electrical appliances?

How much Watts Solar Panel will be Suitable for Home Electrical appliances?

We can find it by very easy and simple example and explanation.
Suppose we want to power up 5 lights of 15 Watts and we need to use these 5 lights for 4 hours every day. So first we get a total Watts usage.
PTotal= 15 x 5 = 75Watts.
Than we multiply 75 Watts with 4 hours.
PDaily = 75 x 4 = 300 Watts.
We are going to use 300 Watts daily. Let us say we are going to have complete sunshine 6 hours each day.Â
Now we divide 300W with 6 hours,
so we will get hourly power charge that we need
So here will be hour power charge that we need i.e watts of solar panel that we want for our electrical appliances.Â
PHourly = 300 / 6 = 50W.Â
So we need a 50 watt solar panel.
Key Point:
Â The above calculation is based on Ideal case. therefore it is recommended that always choose a panel some bigger then we need. Because when solar panel charges the battery so it is wasting some power on charging too due to losses.

## All about MCB, its Construction, Working, Types & Applications.

What is MCB (Miniature Circuit Breaker), its Construction, Working, Types & How to select proper …

1. ma I knw the range of battry .for 100w pannel

• It Depends on your system….. You may use 12 Volt Battery

• Also wait for the upcoming posts…. it will clear your ideas about the wiring of batteries and panel in series ,parallel and series-parallel. also with the capacity and range of panel.thanx

2. dear sir,plz write a topic on ups briefly.plz.i m intrested how ups works and what types of instruments used and how thar work????<br />thanks<br />

3. very use full

4. good that you have started the topic, but there are lost of factors you are missing in this.like battery capacity max discharge level of battery, Wp generation of panel, duration of solar irradiation; the problem is the reader get a very bad idea by out of this.

5. what wud be the wattage of the solar panel to be used for 1kW inverter with 12v 150 ah battery

6. check this out ~! <a href="http://solarkitsolutions.com/About.html&quot; rel="nofollow">Gilroy solar</a>

7. Great job . . you are just AWESOME . . Keep it up . . ðŸ™‚

8. hello sir,<br /><br />good day,<br />nice to read your article,<br /><br />We are planing to installed a 4 digit LED display board (size 2×1 m), its total power consumption is around 120W, we want to run it 24/7. Please suggest what are the items we require and what should be power of solar panel and how many solar panel are required for this. daily sun outage is around 7 hr. and how we should

9. Dear ,<br />nice work (Y)<br /><br />Need your help.<br /><br />We are panning to installed outdoor 4 digit LED display board , size: 2×1 m, total power consumption by LED board is around 120W,. We want to run LED board 24/7, . please let us know what solar panel will be sufficient for this project. ad please also explain how we should connect LED display board with solar panel. <br />Regards<br

10. You arrived at the right answer and unit but there were some minor mistakes in units. Ex. 75 watts multiplied by 4 hours. The resulting unit should be watt-hours, and it is no longer power, it is Energy.

11. in complete details ….what about battery how u will store ? What about the Solar Charge Controller? etc……

12. sir i want to make 500 watt ON Line UPS . how can i find design calculation to ratings of inverter , rectifier, transformer, and battery size . please guide about this

13. helo thanks for considertion

14. 75 Watts x 4 Hours = 300 Watt-hour

15. y we say transfarmer cores,s curent (eddy curent

16. akaforonye chinedu

i enjoyed ,i lent a lot,keep it up

17. Dear sir, I want to run a deep freezer and a washing machine at day time only i mean without batteries, kindly guide me that how many panals of how many watts i need

• Dear Bilal… What is the total load in watts? You can check it on their rating nameplates …

• Sir deep freezers usually consume 300 to 700 watts as you know on my deep freeze’s name plate wattd are not mentioned but current is 1.3Amps and washing machine i think can use 500 max, also tell me which type of UPS should i use 12v, 24v, 36v or 48v I can make UPS at home

• And also have a 36v 2kv UPS an I have made it assuming 300 watt solar panels that give abt 36v

18. I want to make a( 300A) how many solar cell for that?
And what is the best way to contact them by parallel or series way?
Thank you so much

19. Dear sir wasim khan,

I read your artice on solar installation at home. it was very use ful for me thank again for the article.

i want to know one thing, in your article you calculate the load of 800 watt and ask for 6 pannels for of 20 A for battry charging and 10 A for direct load. But i have a question that in home every time we does switch on 800 watt load e.g we require on 100 watt in the moring only one or two lights or fan. the the solar pannel produce the 30 A current. Hennce the load is only 100 waat .

is solar pannel give the ecess current to the battery or invertor or it raise the high output voltage from the invertor.
