Portable Micro Inverter of 150 W for Rural Applications

Oct 2018

In India, inverters are mostly available in 650 VA. Even the inverters of lesser capacities that are available, they retain the same size and specifications of 650 VA inverter, with the exception that power is limited to lesser capacity. Most people in rural households need power up to 100–150 W (watts) for lighting and television requirements, which could be met with 150 VA of inverter with 60 Watt solar panel While, these users are left with no choice but to buy inverters of 650 VA capacities of power rating, which require 60Ah of battery and 60 watts of solar panels. All of this lead additional cost on inverter, batteries and solar panels so as to match the specifications of the inverter.

Salient Features of P-Micro Inverter § Portable and modular § In-built PWM charge controller § Weight >500 grams § 12 V DC to 230 V AC § Low battery voltage cut-off protection § Overload protection § Short-circuit protection § Thermal shutdown and auto restarting Testing of P-Micro Inverter The P-Micro inverter is being tested in the lab with a load of 150 W using two incandescent bulbs of 100 W and 60 W. Input voltage of 12 V DC is given to the inverter from the regulated power source. The test is carried out for 24 hours to check the performance in terms of loading and consistency. Parameters such as input voltage range and output voltage regulation have been checked thoroughly during this process. Protections such as overload, short circuit, thermal shut-down, and battery reverse are also being tested. Technical performance during lab testing Parameter tested Value Input voltage range 11.5 V DC Output voltage range 222 V AC Maximum wattage at output 150 W Overload protection Yes Short-circuit protection Yes Field testing of P-Micro inverter was carried out at Eastern Envo Business Solution, Guwahati, Assam, and Mangaal Solutions, Imphal, Meghalaya. Technical performance during field testing Parameter Guwahati Imphal Solar panel rating 100 W 140 W Battery rating 100 Ah 120 Ah Load rating 90 W 120 W List of devices connected Television (60 W), two Television (80 W), three LED bulbs (5 W each), LED bulbs (5 W each), two charging points (3 two charging points (3 W each) W each) Comparison between existing inverter and P-Micro inverter The P-Micro inverter scores over the existing inverter on many parameters. The main advantages are listed below. § It is considerably lighter than the existing inverter. § Its size is half of the existing one, making it easier to carry. § It costs less than half the price of the existing one. Parameters for Existing inverter P-Micro inverter comparison Size 31 × 28 cm 15 × 14 cm Weight 3000 g 500 g Cost INR 4600 INR 1900 Portability No Yes Applications of P-Micro Inverter P-Micro inverter finds its application in almost every walk of life. A few examples are listed below. § Home lighting kit § Laptop and desktop charging and printing § Portable battery-based appliances charging (tyre inflator and angle grinder)

State of The Indian Decentralized Renewable Energy Sector

Oct 2017

The Clean Energy Access Network (CLEAN), India’s industry body representing the decentralized renewable energy (DRE) sector, launched its first annual “State of the Sector” report. The report highlights the significant progress and innovation made by the sector. It also calls for increased public partnership to scale DRE solutions and to build a modern energy system for India that serves the hundreds of millions of people still without access to electricity or clean cooking.

Off-Grid Solar Products – Tax Ready Reckoner

Sep 2017

Prior to introduction of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), multiple indirect taxes were levied on transactions in India. Some of the taxes such as Central Excise Duty on manufactured products, Service Tax on specified services, and the Central Sales Tax (CST) on interstate sale of products were levied and collected by the Central Government. Other taxes like Value Added Tax (VAT) on intra-state sale of products and Entry Tax/ Octroi Duty (as applicable) were collected by the State Governments.
