TriStar MPPT Charge Controllers
Morningstar TriStar MPPT solar controller with TrakStar Technology? is an advanced maximum power point tracking (MPPT) battery charger for off-grid photovoltaic (PV) systems up to 3kW. The controller provides the industry’s highest peak efficiency of 99% and significantly less power loss compared to other MPPT controllers.
The TriStar TS MPPT 45 features a smart tracking algorithm that maximizes the energy harvest from the PV by rapidly finding the solar array peak power point with extremely fast sweeping of the entire I-V curve.
Maximizes Energy Harvest - TrakStar MPPT Technology features:
Better peak power point tracking than other MPPT controllers
Very fast sweeping of the entire I-V curve
Recognition of multiple power points during shading or mixed PV arrays
Excellent performance at sunrise and low solar insolation levels
Extremely High Reliability:
Robust thermal design and no cooling fans
Parallel circuit design provides less stress and longer life for electronic components
No mechanical relays
Extensive electronic protections including PV short circuit protection
