Basketball Stars

Basketball Stars is a high-quality arcade basketball simulator, in which we must show the accuracy of throws in street baskets and compete with real players from the entire network. The most important thing to

consider is the need for an Internet connection, because all battles will take place against real players, and you will always have access to the world ranking table.

To hold a match, you need to sacrifice a certain amount of money, which ultimately will go to only one player who managed to score the most points in the allotted time / number of throws. As for the modes, here

you can compete just as in throws in the basketball basket, and feel yourself as a defender / attacker, performing deceptive maneuvers and covering throws of our opponent.

You will manage our athlete with the help of swipes and taps on the display, which will allow you both to perform throws and perform tricks. All the money you earn can be spent on new grounds, clothes, as well as

basketballs.

The graphics of this game are very decent, and it has realistic physics with a large set of effects that will not let you get bored for a long time. The musical component of the game fits well with the overall concept

of the arcade. Basketball Stars on Android is a basketball arcade game that everyone should try.

Max array size is dependent on the nominal battery voltage being use. See sizing chart.

Jorge,
So why do Outback use STC panel ratings and not NOTC when determining the maximum panel array?
Does the Flexmax need a ~25% safety buffer?

I have also read that many people are over-paneling their charge controllers as they have never seen the Flexmax get anywhere near its maximum output and they need the extra panel input especially in cloudy conditions. To ensure the output stays below the rated maximum they then manually dial back the maximum on the FM to be 10 -15% below its rated maximum.

and looking at that chart ....... pretty sure the fm80 was rated at 1250 watts at 12 volts when i bought mine . Or am i imagining that .
My system is 2.2kw 24 volts . very rarly will it go to 80 amps .. mostly maxing out at around 60 amps . Has been working fine like this for years .

Having a one size fits all it isn't easy not knowing details on the application. Staying within these sizing guidelines will ensure proper operation and avoid potential nuisance GFDI tripping if the array ever over produces specially if the batteries are at a low voltage condition (lower voltage = higher output current) Charge controllers will work harder needing to throttle down or clipping the power down to it's rated capacity ie. 80A for a Flexmax80.

There is tons of past posts about this topic that may explain further. OutBack has also come out with a white paper: http://outbackpower.com/downloads/docum ... p_note.pdf

Hope this helps

Re: What is the maximum capacity of Flexmax?

Hmm, I think of this differently. Flexmax charge controllers come as 60 amperage, 80 amperage and now 100 amperage. This means that the current flow into the charge controller from the array and into the battery bank must not exceed that rating of the charge controller. The charge controller is simply acting as a computer to control and protect the battery bank from over voltage and too much current or too rapid of a charge which would over heat the battery bank and cause damage. Also, in the case of an advanced charge controller with MPPT algorithm programming, the charge controller adjusts the volts and amperage flowing from the array into the battery bank usually by lowering voltage and increasing amperage (current flow) for more efficient charging.

The 60, 80 and 100 models differ in the physical capacity of the parts inside to handle a larger load and more heat that comes with increased power. In the case of the 60 and 80 models, array voltage as Voc is a maximum allowed of 150 volts. For the 100 amp model, I believe this now 300 volts DC.

Now, think of this relationship: Volts x Amps = Watts (power) REMEMBER SOLAR PANELS AND THE ARRAY ARE USUALLY SPOKEN OF IN TERMS OF WATTS.

Using a 12 volt battery bank with a Flexmax 60 would allow for 12 x 60 = 720 watt solar panel array. For a Flexmax 80, then 12 x 80 = 960 watt array.
Increasing battery voltage to say 24, 36 or 48 has these results:
24 x 60 = 1440 watts, 48 x 60 = 2880 watts for the array. So you see, the battery bank voltage determines the size of the array that can be connected to the Flexmax.
HOWEVER, THE INPUT VOLTAGE OF THE INVERTER DETERMINES THE BATTERY VOLTAGE TO BE USED, NOT THE ARRAY OR CHARGE CONTROLLER. You cannot connect a 48 volt battery bank to a 24 volt inverter!

Now, as to the voltage of the Flexmax charge controller, this has to due with making sure that the charge voltage delivered to the CC and passed through to the battery bank is anywhere from say 18 to 24 volts above the voltage of the battery bank. Remember, a charged 48 volt battery bank will be fully charged at about 58 volts. To do this, the input voltage of the Flexmax must be close to 78 volts. So 2 39 volt solar panels connected together in series will output 78 volts. The same two panels connected in parallel will output 39 volts with more amperage than in series, but inadequate voltage to charge a 48 volt battery bank. The voltage limit of the Flexmax 60 and 80 of 150 Voc allows you to connect panels of differing sizes in series to a maximum Voc of 150 volts on the coldest days at your specific locale. The higher the voltage in the wires, the less voltage drop by percentage of the total when the current reaches the charge controller. For any given length of wire, the longer the wire and thinner, the greater the voltage drop due to resistance and heat loss. A drop from say 100 to 98 is not as significant as a drop from 18 to 16.2, the same 2% drop. So arranging panels in series and then parallel is an important part of choosing which size charge controller to use. Two arrays with two Flexmax 60's may work better than 1 array with 1 Flexmax 80 in configuring your needs.

As always, I appreciate any comments and corrections.

OutBack's sizing guidelines are based on this. Current rating of the CC times nominal battery voltage.

During the bulk stage the charge controller will not limit the current. It will attempt to charge as much current as it can possibly harvest so system sizing practices will come to play to avoid battery damage. These units have the ability to have user adjustable current limitation as well but some have a hard time with this as you want to harvest the most out of your solar array. CC's have a software current limitation as you say and because of this at times breakers may react faster than the software thus the GFDI nuance trips.

Agreed!

Agreed!
Also, it is a good practice to consider temperature derate and Vmp voltages to stay above the higher charging voltage to avoid the unit going into snooze mode. But as you say having two CC's sometimes makes more sense.

I was explaining the meaning of the 60, 80 and 100 sizes of the charge controller. The size of the array can vary greatly, but the real limit is amperage flow into the controller and Voc. For example you could connect a 10,000 watt array to a Flexmax 60 if you face your array North!

"acting as a computer" was really meant to be a reference to the built in 3 stage charging algorithm which protects the batteries as they reach full capacity.
