Deep Cycle batteries are an essential very critical components of any Solar panel solutions system, the under design, over use and under charge of the deep cycle battery cause battery failures, a problem which will keep on repeating itself over in over in the same scenario.
Deep Cycle Batteries are designed according to certain specifications, they have limitations and should be used in accordance to these specifications.
We will herewith present to you considerations to choose the correct deep cycle battery and also the rating of the minimum requirement of deep cycle batteries for your specific solar solutions system application, in order to get the most effective prolonged lifetime out of the deep cycle batteries for any system.
We discuss battery types under a different page and so the rating and quality of battery chargers, the focus here is merely on the design of the deep cycle battery pack. I will do so with the help of a few real examples.
It is very important to understand that in a solar panel system, deep cycle batteries could actually cycle more than once per day. A system should always be designed in such a way that it could not, but in reality the nature of the deep cycle batteries (which is chemically slow in reaction) and the type of unpredictable load,
This, has the affect that the load is variable and unpredictable . We actually do not know how deep cycle batteries really react on this notion over a long time, so we can only try and limit this cycling of deep cycle batteries and the design accordingly.
Deep Cycle battery data curves is always based on STC (Standard testing conditions) , ie tested at a fixed temperature, tested with fixed constant load etc.
In Reality the true requirements and design of a Deep Cycle Battery bank for a true off-
