PROJECT ON SOLAR SUNSEEKER Represented By Ranjan Kumar Singh Santosh Kumar Satyendra Singh Rakesh Swami Sunit Sharma Rammohan Das Gupta
Solar power is electricity generated from the levels of natural energy contained within the suns rays (solar radiation).We shall now take a deeper look into the energy from the sun, and the ways in which we can use this energy. The sun has been in existence for billions of years. Everyday, the sun shines down on our earth, shooting its solar energy in our direction. This solar energy is commonly known as solar radiation, and contains a significant amount of energy we are able to harness. The suns rays contain photons. These photons are capable of transforming electrons into conduction electrons, which means they are able to carry an electrical charge.
EQUIPMENTS SOLAR PLATE- SOLARPLATE IS A LIGHT SENSITIZED STEEL BACKED POLYMER MATERIAL USED FOR CONVERSION OF HEAT ENERGY INTO ELECTRICAL ENERGY. CONFIGURATION- 12 volt(2 Amp.) SIZE-6 inch. LDR- LDRs or Light Dependent Resistors are very useful especially in light/dark sensor circuits. Normally the resistance of an LDR is very high, sometimes as high as 1000 000 ohms, but when they are illuminated with light resistance drops dramatically.
GEAR MOTOR- It is used for provide motion to the solar plate. BATTERY- An array of electrochemical cells for electricity storage, either individually linked or individually linked and housed in a single unit INVERTOR- An inverter is an electrical device that converts direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC); the converted AC can be at any required voltage and frequency with the use of appropriate transformers, switching, and control circuits
APPLICATION Solar sunseeker are broadly characterized as either passive or active depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute sunlight. Active solar techniques use photovoltaic panels, pumps, and fans to convert sunlight into useful outputs. Passive solar techniques include selecting materials with favorable thermal properties, designing spaces that naturally circulate air, and referencing the position of a building to the Sun. Active solar technologies increase the supply of energy and are considered supply side technologies, while passive solar technologies reduce the need for alternate resources and are generally considered demand side technologies.
