Best learning sources for system design and NEC ?
Hi everyone, I was looking for a good book, handbook, web site or secret klingon telepatic transmission device to get solid knowledge about wiring, breakers, and best installation practices in general. So far my efforts brought nothing extraordinary in my net.
I think my electrical ignorance is not too abysmal, I know just enough to realize that there is a lot more to learn.
Thank you in advance for any cue in the direction of my technical and scientific enlightment.
Jordan from Québec, a really cold french speaking province in Canada.
6x265 watts Canadian solar poly panels, Morningstar 60 amp mppt, 4 6V Rolls batteries S-605, cheap 12V 3000 watts inverter (wish to change soon), 187 feet deep well, water at 34 feet (no pump yet). Freezer modified into a refrigerator. Wood and propane stove, solar cloth dryer (cloth line). We've been living with this solar system installed in our school bus for 2 summers and will be ready to move in the house this year, so I wish to make a better permanent installation.
List of the other dilemmas I have to solve :
- Wich type of water pump ?
- System voltage ?
- Off grid or hybrid inverter (cheaper $/watts) ?
- Small inverter plus big one in sleep mode for bigger loads ?
