I recently started building a solar generator. This page is contains an overview of the project and lessons learned.
Why did I build a solar generator?
Here are important parts that you will want for this project. We will go over each tool in more depth later, but this is provided as a convenient list of links to their resources.
- Lithium phosphate batteries
- MPPT Solar charger
- DC to AC inverter
- Battery management system
- 2 gauge cables/wire
- Fuse for inverter
- Fuse for solar charger
- Bus bar to consolidate negative cables
A list of useful skills:
- Basic math
- Basic wood work
Under construction, more to come.
