Batteries - Application Notes

Batteries used in stand alone and stand by power supplies range in size from tiny batteries that will fit into the palm of your hand through to battery banks weighing a tonne or more. They all have one thing in common - the ability to be recharged back to their original state of charge after being discharged.

Both lead acid batteries and nickel-cadmium [NiCad] batteries are listed here. Lead acid batteries are generally cheaper and have a higher charging efficiency than their NiCad counterparts. NiCad batteries generally last longer and have the advantage that they can be completely flattened and stored that way without damage. They also do not exhibit the sudden death characteristic of lead acid batteries.

Wet cell lead acid batteries are the cheapest and the most commonly used in stationary battery banks. Dry cell batteries are usually used where portability is required or where they are inserted into a portable appliance.

Wet cell lead acid batteries

These are the most commonly used batteries in stand alone power systems, being the most cost effective available. They also have a high charging efficiency, with typically 110Ah of charge required to replenish each 100Ah previously drawn out. It is convenient to divide wet cell batteries into small format and large format types. Small format batteriess are generally used for very small systems, typically where lighting and a sound system are the only loads. These batteries resemble car or truck batteries in appearance and come either in a 12 volt package or as a a 6 volt package and are typically portable. Two 6 volt batteries can be series connected together to form a 12 volt bank.

Large format batteries are designed for permanent stationary applications and are the type generally used for meduim to large RAPS systems. Since these batteries are not required to be portable they contain generous amounts of plate material and electrolyte enabling a battery life of 7 to 10 years.

SUNCYCLE AS Series Lead Acid Batteries

Made in Australia for Australian sunshine. The Battery Energy Suncycle is carefully designed to satisfy the special needs of solar and remote area power systems. All models come with a 3-year full warranty. Users of solar and remote systems need reliability, low levels of maintenance, exellent cycling capability especially during low input periods when demand tends to be highest.
Suncycle batteries, properly maintained, should deliver a working life well in excess of 10 years. Cycle life is consistent with design, with at least 5,000 cycles expected with the typical daily usage in a solar system. Improvements have continued in recent years, with changes to the active material to ameliorate charging from the discharged state, a frequent problem with solar batteries. Battery Energy has designed Suncycle to deliver reliability and performance, using ultra thick grids for long life, very high 100 hour performance and a large electrolyte reservoir for both safety and ease of maintenance.
