Hybrid Solar System

When choosing a type of solar system for home, institute, business or industry, mostly choose either an on grid solar system or an off grid solar system. But now one more option is available and that is “HYBRID SOLAR POWER SYSTEM”. This system is combination of on grid solar system and off grid solar system. It has battery backup in it to store power and it also have the ability to feed surplus electricity into main grid.

A hybrid solar system will work even during a power-cut which means you always have electricity in your homes. Hybrid system is a combination of solar energy storage with grid connection. This system provide the flexibility of being able to store the power into batteries that your solar system generated during the day time instead of feeding it back into electricity grid. The same energy can be used in the evening or night instead of buying from government grid at a higher price.

If system is producing more power than is being consumed, the surplus is fed into the main electrical grid via solar net metering. At the time of electricity billing government or power provider company will adjust the exported units in your electricity bill.

Components in Hybrid System

Solar Panel 

Solar panels are the main component of any solar system. Solar panel observe the sunlight and convert it into DC power. The quantity of solar panel depends upon the capacity of solar system. For example, in 5 KW solar system 15 solar panel of 335 watt and in 10 KW solar system 30 panel of 335 watt capacity is required.

Hybrid Solar Inverter

A hybrid solar inverter is second major component in solar system. Solar inverter regulate the voltage that is passing into battery and your appliances. If needed it also converts DC voltage into AC voltage.

Solar Battery

Solar batteries provides you backup at the time when solar panels are not generating the power during rain or nights. Solar battery stores unconsumed power in it. In hybrid photovoltaic system, you can fix solar batteries as per you requirement.

Intelligent Solar System

Hybrid system is fully automatic, programmable and custom engineer system. Which provides a smart hybrid combination of all energy sources to you. And its all done in a pre-define sequence.

How Does A Hybrid Solar System Work?

The array of solar panel in a hybrid solar system is interconnected with the inverter, which is further linked to the solar battery and utility grid. The solar panel absorbs the sunlight and converts sunlight into direct current electricity. This electricity then goes to the connected solar inverter that further converts direct current (DC) power to alternating current (AC). This alternating current is the standard electrical current used to power our household appliances and luxuries.

➡️ During the day, if the solar system’s output exceeds the electrical needs of your house, the excess energy is then stored in solar batteries and once the batteries are fully charged, the electricity is automatically exported to the utility grid via “Net-Metering.”

➡️ For night, you will have 2 options in the inverter grid and up to 50% batteries. If you choose govt power/grid, the grid will run your load and in case of power cut, solar batteries will power your home. If you choose the battery for second priority, the battery will be drawn up to 50%. In case, your household consumes more than 50% battery, the extra electricity required to power the house is drawn from the utility grid.

Your home’s power performance will be the same whether the electricity is being drawn from the solar panel, solar battery, or utility grid.

Let’s look at an example to better understand it. Assume your hybrid solar system generates 100 units in one day and you only use 55 units at home; the remaining 45 units will be stored in solar batteries, and if solar batteries are unable to store that much electricity, the excess will be sent to the utility grid via net-metering, resulting in savings on your electricity bills.

What is Net-Metering?

Net metering is a process that analyzes and displays your grid’s exports and imports along with other figures, such as how much power is generated by the solar system, how much we have consumed, etc. While exporting, your electrical meter will spin backwards. And by the end of the month, your electricity bill will be calculated and adjusted using these parameters.

A bi-directional meter is used to perform all of these procedures. The total electrical consumption of a home will be tracked by this tracking meter. You can easily monitor how much of your home’s electricity needs are met by your system’s output and how well your system is performing at any given time.

Expert Advice

A hybrid solar system is an expensive solar system that provides you with luxury as well as uninterrupted power supply for your heavy appliances such as air conditioners, room heaters, washing machines, water pumps, and so on. So, if you want the luxury of uninterrupted power backup as well as the ability to export to the grid, we recommend this system.

Tips 1: If you believe you will not generate enough extra solar power to export, you should consider an off-grid solar system.

Tips 2: If you want a quick return on investment, go with an on-grid solar system because the ROI is 3 to 5 years, whereas the hybrid solar system is 5 to 7 years.
