Solar energy supply system
8 June 2011, Power Electronics / Power Management

Clearline Power Solutions has successfully launched its new solar energy supply system in South Africa.

The standard system is rated at 5 kW, with three day autonomy; however it can be designed to generate greater or smaller power output depending on the installation. These units have been installed in Msinga in KwaZulu-Natal and in Thabankulu, as well as in Mount Frere in the Eastern Cape. The units are monitored via GSM modems to ascertain usage patterns and to ensure that the supply is adequate. They are designed to be installed in developed or rural areas as there is no need for specialised erection equipment, infrastructure or electrical distribution connections.

The patented design and delivery system ensures that power will be available to the user for 24 hours per day. The systems can be configured as prepaid, billed or free supply electricity depending on local conditions. Some of the typical applications for the system are housing (urban and rural), borehole and surface pumps, electric fences, lodges, game farms, gatehouses, traffic lights, perimeter and street lights.

In addition to successfully installing solar systems in diverse locations, Clearline has installed a totally solar powered system which provides continuous power to cellular phone towers. The installation has allowed the mobile phone operating company in question to take its tower completely off the electrical grid and operate its system independently, saving not only operating expenses, but also being unsusceptible to power interruptions. One of the standout features of this system is that the solar panels track with the arc of the sun, thus maximising the sun’s power source.

Typically the equipment is supplied flat packed which allows for bulk and cost-effective transportation. Once on site, the system can reportedly be erected and commissioned within a day.
