SS Power Technologies has invented and patented a set of power extraction electronics, based on the dynamic physics involved in the working of solar cells and solar panels. Unlike any other technology, this set of technologies extract power at high frequencies in order to exploit the dynamic physics of the solar panel. These technologies apply equally to all kinds of cells and the panels including monocrystalline, polycrystalline, thin film solar cells, and multi-junction cells. Use of these technologies will result in up to 10X more power delivered to various types of loads. The load types include batteries, motors of various types, resistive loads like light bulbs and heaters and inverters. This set of technologies include a completely new electronic circuit topology and new high frequency electromagnetic components.
In addition to delivering much more power to the various kinds of load, proper use of these technologies can also result in near complete elimination of shadow effect and broken cell effect without the use of by-pass diodes.
Based on this set of technologies, SS Power Technology has recently launched a new category of commercial products called RapidSolar Charger Controllers.
RapidSolar Charge Controllers are a set of super solar charge controllers. A super charge controller delivers 3X-4X more power to a battery than is otherwise possible with any other type of charge controller in a given time. These other types of solar charge controllers include MPPT based solar charge controllers as well as PWM type of solar charge controllers. This means that a RapidSolar charge controller can charge a battery 3X-4X faster than any other PWM or MPPT based solar charge controller. Alternatively, you can reduce the number of solar panels by 3X-4X if you use a RapidSolar Charge Controller to charge a battery in same time as it would take 3-4 panels and 3-4 PWM or MPPT based solar charge controllers to the charge the battery. This dramatically reduces the cost, weight and size of a solar system because of the large reduction in the numbers of solar panels and solar charge controllers.
Currently, only one product is out for sale on this website. This product has a Model Number P100-B12-1. This model is optimized to work with 80-100 watts solar panel and 12v battery. The 12v battery can be of any type of rechargeable battery including Lead Acid 12v batteries and Li-Ion 12v batteries. For convenience, this model comes with built-in controls which completely automate the operation of these controllers and associated solar systems
Very soon, new models of RapidSolar Charge Controller will be introduced in the market, which will be optimized to work with 80-100 watts solar panels and 24v, 36v and 48v batteries. These new models of RapidSolar Charge controller for 24v, 36v and 48v batteries will include controls for full automated operations.
In the future, SS Power Technology will also introduce new products in the market, which can work with 250 watts and 500 watts panels.
