DC fans provide variable airflow for cooling string inverters used with solar panels and pure sine wave inverters used in small scale wind turbines. Alternative energy DC fans are the perfect solution for energy-saving applications because they have a quiet operation and use up to 70% less power than AC fans. They also produce minimal electromagnetic interference for use in and around sensitive electronic devices.
Some of the typical uses for alternative energy DC fans include:
Solar panels turn sunlight into DC energy, which is stored in batteries. Alternative energy storage inverters then convert the DC electricity into usable AC electricity. Energy DC fans are used to cool inverters and other energy storage components to prevent overheating that can reduce its efficiency and longevity.
An inverter manufacturer and long-time client contacted our engineers requesting a small footprint alternative energy DC fan that provided twice the airflow as fans they previously ordered from us. The fans we were supplying to them were already an industry leader in terms of performance, so our team was curious as to why they needed increased airflow. We attempted to get more information from the client and, after conducting extensive research, provided a quote for the new fans.
It turned out that a different manufacturer was supplying them with the high-airflow fans they requested, but at a much lower price than what we quoted. The issue, however, was that the fans from the other manufacturer were showing inferior results in accelerated aging tests. The fans also produced significantly less airflow than what the manufacturer specified. We provided a solution, and the client replaced all the energy DC fans with models from Y.S. Tech U.S.A.
