Now that you have converted energy from a renewable or non-renewable source, and this energy is controlled and available to you in the form of electricity, appropriate Power Applications come into play. There is power at your fingertips! What will you do with it? Here are your options:
- Storage-Free Instantaneous Use
- Storage diversion and Instantaneous use
- Don’t use (Keep open circuit, or shunt to dump unwanted energy as applicable)
When designing any power system, we recommend careful consideration of the needs or desires to be achieved, then a comprehensive examination of the applicable components in the Nova Formula. The amount of control and governance exercised will vary widely for each of the possible applications, however it all boils down to correct balancing of loads with the rest of the system.
Battery banks are the most common means of Power Storage for Electrical Power Systems. Batteries come in many different types and sizes, each with unique characteristics. Thankfully, you do not need to be a battery expert if your application requires Power Storage. If you are able to associate the concept of power to water, and storage to a cup, then the idea of “Power Storage” becomes water in a cup! The operator is responsible for managing the amount of water in the cup, while paying respect to the limitations and maintenance needs of the cup.
When you partner with NOVA to create solutions for your power needs, you are assured a system designed to achieve the most efficient use of your battery bank for as long as possible. Some batteries require attention over time. When necessary, we provide our customers with advice on how to maintain their batteries to achieve peak performance, based on anticipated usage and environmental conditions.
You have completed our basic overview of principles for successfully creating and implementing a power system. Consider your unique situation to determine power sources available, power management requirements, and power application options.
