Lead Acid Batteries Usage in Power Systems

The Lead Acid Batteries are used in Automobiles and UPS - Uninterrupted Power Supplies. Battery Banks and Arrays are used in Home and Industrial Power Systems with Solar and Wind power charging too.

Lead Acid Batteries Usage in Power Systems

These batteries have survived many other types, for rugged high power usage, even beyond 100Kva. It is all the more important for us, to learn how to use them properly. Intelligent charge controllers and charge-discharge cycle regulating managers, will ensure a long lifespan for optimum cost-effective usage of this Electro-Chemical Wonder.
A home power station is what we all should try and build on our own, Make designs that are serviceable and maintainable. Solar Power, Waste Organic fuel Power, Even Pedal power Low cost Systems need to be designed.

On the other side, switch to low power Tablet PCs, even if the power of computation is less. Use Applications that use less resources, Switch to Open Source. A HandHeld PC should not take more than 12 watts on normal usage. Use Web Applications hosted on Green Servers, here the power of computation is shared.

The wastage of power in many companies are enormous on standby. Some have many systems turned on with hardly any usage, I have seen in an office a 300 W load of a computer; turned on for a whole week, for just sending a few mails and printing a few documents. Certainly the Telex machine was eco friendly and even the electronic typewriter was sensible.

A Green solution could be New Desktop Computing Standard - The quiescent losses in this is only the wifi server cube, which can serve 6 tablets or UMPC. So if 6-12 people are using computers, many desktops need not be on. Tablets, Laptops and Notebooks consume less power and run on batteries. Thin Custom Notebook and Tablet Clients can use one OpenOffice on the WiFi Application Server cube
