The Battery Array Parameters

To design the battery array, we need to know several things:

  1. How much energy you use on the heaviest use day of the year.
  2. How long you intend to run on batteries if you cannot collect power from the Sun
  3. The voltage you intend to deliver to the Inverter
  4. The efficiency of the batteries

We already know part of this information.  

We are designing the system for a 50 KWh day.  That is the peak energy usage I have had in the past 15 years. 

The voltage delivered to the inverter is 48 VDC

I plan on growing the battery array so it stores 3 days of energy, but initially it will just store enough energy to get me through one day

The efficiency of the batteries will require some discussion.
