Charge Controller

A charge controller is an essential part of nearly all power systems that charge batteries ,whether the power source is PV,wind,hydro,fuel,or utilty grid.It purpuse is to keep your batteries  properly fed and safe for the long term.

The basic function of a controller are quite simple .charge controller blocks reverse current and prevent battery overcharge.some controllers also prevent battery  over discharge, protect from electrical overload,and/or display battery status and flow of a power. Let’s examine each function individually. the basic function of a controller quite simple. charge controller blocks reverse current and prevent battery overcharge. some controllers also prevent battery over discharge,protect from electrical overload,and/or display battery status and flow of a power. Let’s examine each function individually.

Photovoltaic panels work by pumping current through your battery in one direction . At nights , the panels may pass a bit of current in the reverse direction ,causing a slight discharge  from the battery (our term “battery” represent eighter a single battery or bank of batteries .)The potential lass is minor ,but it is easy to prevent. some type of wind and hydro generators also draw reverse current when they stop(most do not except under fault condition).
