Bibliographic description: Portable photovoltaic power supply for low temperature applications. Arctic: ecology and economy, 2020, no. 2(38), pp. 134-143. DOI: 10.25283/2223-4594-2020-2-134-143. (In Russian).
The paper describes autonomous power supply for small and mobile consumers such as reindeer farmers, tourists, geological groups, emergency teams and others, operating for a long time outside the centralized power supply networks and in tough environment conditions. The authors consider the development and operation issues of portable power supplies based on renewable energy power sources in extreme climatic conditions. The authors present the developed autonomous portable photovoltaic power supply, its operation algorithm and technical parameters. The power supply contains high-performance silicon photoelectric modules based on heterojunctions, a high-capacity lithium-ion battery with a built-in heater, and a charge controller with the function of extreme power control and balancing of the battery cells.
