The ABC’s Of Solar Power For Traffic Systems
Solar power is becoming very commonplace in the traffic industry, not only to power flashing beacons but to power many other devices including cameras and communication devices.
This presentation will be explained in easy-to-understand language, the ABC’s of solar system design and system sizing. The attendee will be able to understand what kind of information he/she should expect from a solar vendor as well as relevant questions to ask about solar system design and sizing. Several examples of applications and the resulting solar sizing will be reviewed. A discussion of power management and what it means will be included as part of the presentation.
The attendee will also understand where solar power will work today and where it will not work because of cost or system size.
