FAQ

MPPT controller is called “Maximum Power Point Tracking” (MPPT) solar controller. MPPT controllers can detect the power generation voltage of solar panels in real time, and track the highest voltage and current value (VI), so that the system can charge the battery with maximum power output.

MPPT controllers utilize advanced algorithms to track the larger power point of the solar panel with higher efficiency and adaptability, while PWM controllers control the current and voltage by simply reducing the voltage. For high power solar controllers, MPPT controllers are the better choice.

MPPT can improve the efficiency of a solar energy system, but the amount of improvement depends on a number of factors, including the type of solar panels, environmental conditions (such as sunlight intensity and temperature), system design and quality. Typically, MPPT can increase the efficiency of a solar system by about 5% to 30%.

The easiest way to check if it is a true MPPT solar controller is to check if the output current is greater than the large input current. Also, you can check if the PV voltage can track the voltage at the maximum power point. You can also check the conversion efficiency etc by checking.

When choosing an MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) charge controller, there are several key factors that can be considered: solar panel capacity and voltage, battery type and capacity, power and current rating, temperature range and environmental suitability, additional features and protection characteristics, brand and quality.
Taking the above factors into consideration, choosing the right MPPT controller for your solar system needs can help maximize the output power of the solar panels and ensure the efficient operation and stability of the system.

The main role of MPPT solar controller is to maximize the use of solar panel output power, to avoid energy loss, but also to protect the panel, load, battery and other equipment to improve system reliability and service life. In practical application, solar controller can also carry out intelligent management and monitoring, adapting to different working environments and needs.

Higher cost: MPPT controllers require more complex circuits and algorithms to achieve maximum power point tracking, and are therefore more expensive.
Complexity: MPPT controllers are relatively complex to design and install, requiring more technical knowledge and specialized experience.
Electromagnetic Interference: Because MPPT controllers utilize high-frequency switching circuits, they may generate electromagnetic interference, which can affect the normal operation of other electronic equipment. Therefore, care should be taken when installing MPPT controllers to avoid interference with other equipment.
Temperature effect: The performance of MPPT controller may be affected by temperature, especially in high temperature environment, the efficiency and stability of controller may be reduced.

Solar controller: the normal service life is generally about 5-8 years, but the specific life also depends on its quality, manufacturing process and use of the environment and other factors.
