This paper explains how to: calculate the heat dissipation for TriStar controllers; determine the air temperature rise inside an enclosure
determine the resulting heat sink temperature of the controller to ensure it is below its operating limits; reduce operating temperatures.
With this information, system designers can make good decisions regarding thermal management and system design when installing Morningstar controllers inside enclosures.
Morningstar’s MPPT charge controllers use the TrakStar advanced control MPPT algorithm to harvest maximum power from a Solar Array’s peak power point. It is generally accepted that even the most basic MPPT controller will provide an additional 10‐15% of charging capability, when compared to a standard PWM regulator. Besides this extra charge capability, there are several other important differences and advantages between MPPT and PWM technologies that are outlined in this whitepaper.
