Morningstar Solar Charge Controllers & Inverters

Is your system less-than-perfect? Ultimately, the health of your batteries will tell you that. But that’s a hard and expensive way to learn! Instead, learn how choosing the right solar charge controller up-front can make or break your off-grid system.

This webinar is conducted each month to introduce individuals to Morningstar and off-grid solar. It is also appropriate for experienced professionals who are looking for a refresher, or to have their pressing questions answered by one of our engineers. Attend this webinar to receive One NABCEP CE credit and  learn about:

  • Battery charging stages
  • Differences between PWM and MPPT controllers
  • Effects of oversizing PV arrays
  • Efficiency variations with output power
  • Electronic and environmental protections
  • Controller/inverter features and accessories
  • High voltage charge controllers

Choosing the Right Solar Charge Controller Without Taking a Risk

The solar charge controller has a central role in a solar photovoltaics application: it’s actually the “brain” of your system and, as such, requires precision matching to the rest of your components.  Josh Roelofs of Unbound Solar joined the Morningstar Team in this webinar to cover the steps you need to take to choose the right charge controller for your application.  View the recording to learn about:

  • Application requirements and considerations
  • Feature requirements and considerations
  • PWM controller sizing
  • MPPT controller sizing

Save Time–By Getting Off-Grid Right The First Time

Morningstar and SunWize cover what you need to consider before designing and deploying your next off-grid system. Solar projects vary greatly depending on application, size, location, and other factors. We’ll review a “checklist” of variables you’ll want to pencil-in on your next project including:

  • Load considerations, types and sizes
  • Space/easement constraints
  • Array stringing and mounting options
  • Battery decisions
  • Charge controllers and inverters
  • Accessories for communications and generator start

The keys to success with lithium

This joint webinar involving M+H Power, genZ Battery, and Morningstar covers the “latest and safest” technologies, practices and products—what you need to know to achieve lithium success in your new projects, or when upgrading existing ones. Learn about:

  • Fundamental advantages of lithium storage technology
  • Battery Management Systems, communications, and integration considerations
  • Review of solar charging technologies
  • Pre-programmed settings for easy integration of a lithium-based storage systems

Making lithium the affordable option with KiloVault Battery and Morningstar

Watch this joint webinar between KiloVault and Morningstar to learn:

  • Advantages of lithium storage and specifically KiloVault’s Lithium Ferro-Phosphate (LFP)
    chemistry: longer cycle life with none of the safety, toxicity and sustainability issues found with other lithium types.
  • Review of solar charging technologies
  • KiloVault’s innovative line-up, from easily-deployable back-up and portable power units to the HAB wall-mounted integrated and scalable storage system
  • Monitoring and communications features including WiFi and Bluetooth
  • Pre-programmed settings for easy integration
  • And much more

Everything you need to know to design and size an off-grid telecom system

Industry expert Rob Rallo, of Solar System Services, joins the Morningstar team to present a thorough system sizing example for an off-grid telecom application. You’ll learn how to build a highly-reliable system that will stand the test of time, with emphasis on:

  • Load array and battery sizing calculations
  • Accounting for system losses, future expansion and worst-case scenarios
  • Choosing the right charge controller based on industry-standard IEEE 1562 recommendations
  • Software and insolation mapping resources available to design a better system

Calculating solar strings? Do the webinar instead of doing the math!

Why do things the old-fashioned way when we’ve done the homework for you? Especially if you have more productive things to do with your time than calculating off-grid solar string sizes for off-grid systems. Instead, invest an hour in Morningstar’s recorded webinar and learn to:

  • Figure out the optimum string sizing for your system—series, parallel configurations, load requirements, etc.
  • Find specifications for over 100,000 module brand SKU’s
  • Input custom module specifications
  • Access detailed power output results to find out how your module configuration will work with other components in your system
  • Learn the module configurations to avoid, because they could cause operational faults or even damage your charge controller.
  • Save and share output results with others
