12V Battery Pack for Solar Panel

12V Battery Pack for Solar Panel

12V Battery Pack for Solar Panel

Good day everyone

I am practically new to engineering and most of the things I learned about engineering are pretty much self-taught. I was wondering how I can build a 12 V battery pack for a solar panel for an agricultural project that we are developing. We are preventing any accidents such as fire from happening so we are in desperate need of help. I hope you can help us. Thank you!

RE: 12V Battery Pack for Solar Panel

Just so you know, this site is for working engineers with work-related problems. I expect this thread to be removed soon based on what appears to be very little knowledge on the subject question which makes members doubt their efforts will help.

To wit; One doesn't buy "batteries to go with solar panels". You typically have a task that needs to be done reliably that needs a certain amount of stored energy. You then decide on which of MANY battery technologies based on a fistful of criteria you will use. Then based on the type of battery chemistry and the local solar seasonal insolation numbers gathered from government documents you size the battery system. Finally you size the solar array based on all this prior design work. Once you size the panels and the batteries you must then select an appropriate charger for the given battery chemistry, solar and battery array sizes and any additional required parameters like a BMS (Battery Management System).

As you can see from this fairly standard procedure you have supplied virtually nothing of any use in designing what you seek.
