These amazing tools will help you to calculate the rating & sizing of DC / AC cables & Earthing pit sizing in solar plant. the proper sizing & selection of Solar DC / AC cable & Earth pit is really important for the proper functionality of the system, it should be selected in such a way that it should not burn or melt when maximum current is flowing during the peak generation hours of the solar power plant.

If in case the cables are selected under sized then there is a high chance the cable will melt as it will overheat, because there are cable conductor material derating factors which depends from site to site and the way the cable is routed or installed in open or underground.

The selection & calculation plays an important role as the material is associated with high cost which varies because of its conductor price in the market, incorrect selection can lead to project cost imbalance.

Although people use the terms solar wire and solar cable interchangeably, they are different. Solar wire refers to a single conductor, while solar cable is a composite of several conductors or wires held together by a jacket.

Solar wires, used to connect the components of a photovoltaic system, come in various types. Typically, it connects four components: the solar panel, the inverter, the charge controller and the batteries.

Choosing an appropriate type of wire in a PV system is crucial to its operation and efficiency. Using a wrong solar wire might not deliver the appropriate voltage and fail to power up the electrical units or result in the battery bank’s failure to charge fully.
