Sukam Solar Home UPS/Inverter Pros and Cons
Solar energy is the only solution for rising power crisis in India. Installing normal inverters for power backup in Homes is becoming inevitable even for middle class families.
Many states in India are suffering more than 14 hours power cut per day. Normal inverters which charge the battery with power from grid actually gives back only 80 percent of energy it saves from grid power, the balance 20 % energy is wasted during conversion process. No inverters are 100 percent efficient.
In each end every home where normal inverter installed, the 20% energy is wasted during conversion process. The numbers would be very high if the calculation is carried throughout the country.
So, charging the battery with solar power is the only solution to stop this power loss and to generate green energy from sun light.
Sukam the leading power backup solution provider in India has wide range of Hybrid solar Inverter models for Industrial purpose. For Home use, Sukam has one successful solar inverter model called ‘Sukam Brainy’.
Sukam Brainy Inverter – Home inverter – Package
Capacity: 850 VA
Battery: 150 va sukam battery
Waveform: Pure sinewave
Charging option: Solar and Grid
Solar Panel. 80watts
Why they call ‘Hybrid Solar’ instead of ‘Solar’?
‘Sukam Brainy’ model inverter is hybrid solar inverter. It charges the battery with solar power and grid power as well, so it is named as Hybrid Solar inverter.
# Sukam Brainy inverter – Pros
Sukam Brainy inverter charges the battery with solar power as primary source and grid power as secondary source.
When the battery is fully charged, the inverter automatically switches to battery power even when the grid power is available. This facility is not available on other normal brands. So we can save some money on our electric bills by maximizing the usage of solar power.
If installed as additional inverter for home, solar power would be Very helpful during long and frequent power cuts where minimum required power for charging the battery is not available from grid.
Saves electricity bills even under zero power cut situation.
It generates power from solar; no noise no fumes, green energy!
Charging is not possible when the inverter is in battery mode. Not useful during power cuts more than 12 hours. Useful under situations like 3 hours power cut per day.
This inverter uses the battery daily even under zero power cut situation, so the battery gets old in 2 to 3 years and needs replacement.
High cost- Total cost of the normal 850 VA solar inverter package costs around Rs.30, 000/- which is double priced compared to normal inverter package without solar option. The costs of solar panels are high and not affordable to middle class people.
It depends on weather condition. Approximately an eighty watts solar panel would take 2.25 hours to charge a 150ah battery to 20%.
Hello Admin, I m planning to buy 850va interver and came across Sukam Briny Hybrid Solar Inverter. i ve read ur review regarding it and i called the concern sales people, but they are suggesting three solar panels instead of the provided one solar panel which is 80watts. they say it needs 240watt panel to use optimum solar energy. i m totally confused with these options. i was convinced with Microtec inverter with exit battery, but this solar inverter is bit motivating. Please help me
What you heard from technicians is partially true, three 80 watts panels can give you optimum performance, but installing extra two panels is optional , you can install it anytime. If you are budget conscious, we recommend to go for it with one 80 watts panel initially, after watching the performance you can install more panels in future.
We recommend solar hybrid inverters for our readers than any other conventional inverters. Solar hybrid inverters can be installed without solar panels, they perform in the same way as normal inverters, you can install solar panels later.
is there any special battery for solar energy now i have a new exide 150ah battery can i use the battery for your solar panel and sukam home inverter
Some companies are taking advantage of people s growing interest on solar energy and trying to label their normal inverter batteries as specially designed batteries for solar power, it is just a marketing strategy! We recommend semitubular and tubular batteries for solar hybrid inverters.
I have Purchased I KW panels, but in search of good Solar Inverter, which after charging the battery completely, can supply the solar Energy Directly for Use,Does the SU-Kam Brainy has this Facility.
Also is it avialble in 1KW option or more than that.
If you have 1KW Panels if you want to buy this inverter then use 12V 240VA panels with this inverter use rest panels with solar charger(which is available in market) to charge battery directly.
I read ur article it was super. Can u pls help me out
in my village around 12hrs power cut there. I am planning to buy Sukam Brainy inverter. Could u pls give a proper quote for 8 hours backup
I want Sukam pannels to attach to my inverter. I am using su kam batteries N sukam Inverter. Then what would be cost of pannel per each watt. I am planning to install 250 watt pannel
Normally dealers would charge Rs.55/watt for solar panels with some additions installation charges.
I am going to buy an inverter of 850 VA, Sukam make. Can I convert to solar inverter at a later stage? Only the Solar panels required to convert it to solar inverter?
Better you go for Hybrid solar Inverter now itself, it has inbuilt charge controller to regulate the current from solar panels.
For normal inverters, you have to purchase it separately and you may face some compatibility issue too.
An 850 va Pure sine wave sukam normal inverter would cost Rs.5500/- (Hybrid inverter would cost more)
Sukam 150 ah deep cycle battery would cost around Rs.10000 to 11,000 /-
Some Info about solar panels,
230, 240 or 250 watts. 24 volt Poly crystalline solar panels would cost around Rs.13000 or Rs.55 per watt.
There is an another type MONO crystalline solar panels. which is superior to poly crystalline solar panels.
Mono crystalline solar panels are more energy efficient than polycrystalline panels, which means you get more current. So, naturally it is bit expensive than polycrystalline solar panels.
250 watts 24 volt MONO crystalline solar panel would cost around Rs.20,000 to 21,000/-
So, you got price quote of Rs.48,000/-. this is way expensive than the present market. People know nothing about solar panels and prices, so this is looting time for solar dealers.
The cost of whole configuration(inverter, battery and solar panels) should not cross
Rs.32,000/- (for polycrystalline solar panels)
Rs.38,000/- (for Mono crystalline solar panels)
