PV OUTPUT DATA

July 2010  Back to June 2010  Forward to August 2010  Go to PV OUTPUT DATA to see graphs of monthly total generation.

7/1 Net meter 000179. Grid feed 45.71. Fixed array 16.30, trackers 25.41, turbine 4.0. I scrubbed all 42 solar panels this morning. They really needed it. However, it didn't really change the production over yesterday. Yesterday and today were identical, both output and weather, except today was a little warmer. About the weather, very dry and unseasonably cool, ran the whole house exhaust fan instead of AC, two days in a row now.

7/2 Net meter 000152. Grid feed 45.70, fixed array 16.41, trackers 26, turbine 3.29.

7/3 Net meter 000129. Grid feed 40.25, fixed array 15.19, trackers 24.0 turbine 1.06.  Back to AC weather.

7/4 Net meter 000112. Grid feed 32.32. Decided to monitor the micro turbine output for a while today since it was very windy at the house. The voltage output was around 24-44 volts a lot of the time. Once in a while it would make it to 52 volts and charge at 0.14 amps for a moment or two. Still my opinion is this PMA is more suited to charge a 12 volt system, not 48 volt. Thinking if I leave the turbine up, it will do better as a 12 volt water heater separate from the power system. It's about useless as a 48 volt charger unless I can change the gear ratio to spin the PMA faster than the rpm of the micro turbine.

7/5 Net meter 000111. Grid feed 38.33, fixed array 13.98, trackers 22, turbine 2.35. Saw the General micro turbine reach 0.37 amps for a moment today. That is volts X amps = watts, 19 watts. The wind was blowing strong enough that the tail fin was buffeting and the tower pulled taught on one side put slack in the guy on the down wind side. The wind rarely blows that hard in summer and that's all I got?

7/6 Net meter 000111. Grid feed 33.26, fixed array 12.85, trackers 18.82, turbine 1.59.
