Mobile Dual Axis-solar Radiation Tracker (DART)

A Mobile Solar Power Station is ideal for Renters or people that just want a Power Station that can be Towed, Parked & Plugged in, and there is enough room in a standard Box Trailer to fit a 4.2kW Silenced Generator to provide 24/7 Power security !

This Prototype is now welded into an old Box Trailer, and is currently in the process of being Transformed into a Three solar panel wide stance DART-3 unit, when finished will hold either 3x 500W solar panels (1.50kW), and be , currently we are manufacturing 4 bespoke hinges so the two outside Solar Panels Fold-in on top of each other for transporting.

This prototype is currently operating on a 51.2V, 5kWh VOLTX LiFePo4 Battery (not shown) & 4x 12.8V (51.2V) 110Ah LAB connected in Parallel, 240V Power is supplied by a 5kW LUX Single Phase Inverter that will eventually be mounted vertically in the Weather proof Housing (yet to be finished).

NB: Single Phase Power is 3'600W, 15A rating, this equates 240V x 15A = 3'600W (3.60kW), so will easily supply Full Power to any single phase Australian Home.  Then all that is needed is a 15A Caravan lead to connect directly into the Main Power box, this is called a Behind the Meter system installation, this is exactly what all Solar & Battery Systems are, before being connected into the State Grid if it is there.

You can legally connect this Power Station to a Premises using a 15A Wall Plug, if you want to Export Power into the State Grid, you need to do this Legally by using an ON-Grid inverter with Anti-Islanding function, in other words, an Inverter connected to the State Grid is NOT allowed to Export Power into the State Grid, as if the State Grid has an outage, Workers repairing the lines miles down the road can be Electrocuted by Voltage been illegally Exported !

Below images are the start of our first Mobile Trailer mounted DART-3 Prototype;

Dual Axis Slew Drive.

This Free standing Foundation Chassis & Base plate, was originally designed for Ground mounting, and is now being installed in a Box Trailer and is now Welded to the Trailer Walls with 4 square pipes.

Showing the Battery and Inverter Housing being built, still under Conversion

Showing the Racking lowered into the Transport position.

Three Solar Panel & Hinges being fitted... almost done, just the Light & Wind Sensor to be re-fitted.

Two top 500W solar panels simply fold out, with the centre one remaining in place

All three 500W solar panels unfolded, Series Connected will supply 170V DC into a 5kW LUX Inverter.

Yet to parallel the Solar Panels.

We will eventually fit a Stabilising Jack on each Corner of the Trailer.

Dual Axis Slew Drive.

This will be our New Solar Panel Racking Design, where the panels Slide out & lock in Place.

This DART used cheap 12v Linear Actuators.

Polish DART Controller Module uses Automotive MOSFETS.

What Hight are the solar panels in the Stow Position ?

As this DART unit is mounted onto a box trailer the Panels in the Night or High Wind Stow Position (Horizontal) can be manufactured between 200cm~300cm above the ground.

This Mobile DART units can be manufactured higher to compensate for the surrounding Shading from Trees, Buildings &/or Terrain, but this will make the installation more unstable in Very Gusty Winds during the 2~3 minutes it takes the Racking is automatically Stow Horizontal position.
