PV-Direct System

PV-Direct System This type of system does not use batteries. Energy produced by the PV array goes directly to the load. The modules can only power one load, like a water pump or a vent fan. This type of system only operates when sunshine is present and needs no regulating components. A device called a Linear Current Booster (LCB) is often used to improve the performance of the motor load. It helps start motors, and sustains their operation during varying sunlight intensities. PV-Direct systems are ideal for remote unattended locations. Protection against pumps running dry and overheating motors may be required.
