Designing Your Portable Power Solution

Every portable power system faces limitations that can prohibit full dependency on a sole power source. Fuel generators require fuel to operate, but the fuel may not always be available; renewable generators, such as solar and wind, rely on environments that can be uncooperative.

Given these limitations, systems with a single power source may not always be able to satisfy power demands. The logical step in mitigating dependency on only one power solution is using a configuration that draws from more than one type of power source. When using a battery-based portable power system, the operator can choose from multiple power generation options to support the battery.

Solar Stik Hybrid Power System Four-step Process
1

Understand the load profile and the application.

2

Select the appropriate battery technology and battery capacity.

3

Determine which power generation sources are applicable to the operating environment.

4

Select the power management equipment that provides the capability required for the mission.

There is a rule to remember when selecting a traditional fuel-driven generator for use in a hybrid power system:

The generator should be able to supply all of the power necessary for the load in the event that it becomes the primary source of power for the circuit.

Solar Stik Hybrid Power Systems generate, store, integrate, manage, and distribute power in the most efficient manner possible. A hybrid system mitigates the risk of dependency on a single power source, while dramatically increasing operating efficiency. Additionally, the open architecture of the hybrid configuration allows operators to tailor the system capabilities to directly support current and future applications.

Explorer’s Log

  • There are four general categories of components in a Solar Stik power model: power generation, power management, energy storage, and loads.
  • The Inter-Connect System is designed for safety and system scaling.
  • The open-architecture design of the Solar Stik System encompasses five primary tenets: portable, adaptable, scalable, durable, and autonomous.
  • Adding a battery to a traditional, low-efficiency portable power system turns it into a high-efficiency hybrid system.
  • Solar Stik Hybrid Power Systems generate, store, integrate, manage, and distribute power in the most efficient manner possible.
