breaker for solar panel

Best answer


The short answer is thatyou do not need a fuse or a breakerif your solar panel or a solar array is installed correctly. A fuse or breaker is an accessory that provides an additional layer of safety for your solar components,and many solar contractors recommend that you use them.

  • What breakers and isolators are suitable for solar PV?

  • Generally speaking, breakers and isolators suitable for Solar PV are not available in tight sizes, but rather some common jump points are: DC Current: 8A, 10A, 16A, 20A, 25A, 32A. DC Voltage: 250V, 440V, 500V, 800V and 1000V.

  • What type of breaker do I need for a transformer isolator?

  • For transformer isolating inverters you will need a DC breaker or isolator that is double pole (breaks negative and positive simultaneously) and is rated to break 1.25 x the Short Circuit Current (Isc) rating of the solar PV array AND 1.2 x the Open Circuit voltage (Voc) of the array.

  • What type of DC breaker do I need for my inverter?

  • For transformer isolating inverters you will need a DC breaker or isolator that is double pole (breaks negative and positive simultaneously) and is rated to break 1.25 x the Short Circuit Current (Isc) rating of the solar PV array AND 1.2 x the Open Circuit voltage (Voc) of the array. For transformerless, see 鈥?鈥?below.

  • What size fuse do I need for a solar panel string?

  • What size fuse or circuit breaker for a solar panel string? To determine the normal fuse or breaker size use this equation: String circuit ampacity =Short Circuit Current (Isc) X 1.56=Fuse Size. For the DC side of the circuit, the short circuit current (Isc) is used for this calculation.
