2-100w panels / 20a MPPT cont / 12v 100AH batt - sound good?
I'm just starting to experiment with solar.
I'm thinking of getting (2) 100w monocrystalline Renogy solar panels and a 20a MPPT controller (EPEVER Tracer/2210A).
I want to use them to maintain a single 12v VMAXSLR100 100AH AGM battery. No specific power requirements, just want to see what I get. It'll be used primarily to maintain a 6a backup sump pump. Also will try and power some 12v devices, maybe try an inverter and see what I can power up.
The basic questions:
-Are all these components matched for safety and general compatibility? Are the panels overkill for the battery? (or the reverse)
-Should I wire the panels in 12v parallel or 24v series?
-Is a 25 foot run of 10AWG cable good for connecting the panels to the controller?
-Is the 12v output from the controller regulated enough to replace the 12v power supplies of various components such as Routers, computers and the like? Can I wire it directly to those devices? Or do I need additional power regulation to replace those individual power supplies.
-If I did get an inverter, what's the max wattage I should attach to this system?
Any other comments and help greatly appreciated! I know this is very newbie and also appreciate any suggestions for other reference sites that may shed some light on this situation.
