Transcript of "Group 5 - Solar Powered Grill - Informal Presentation"

  1. 1. Solar Powered Grill<br />Nicole Vieira <br />Darab Fadavi<br />Christian Pimentel<br />Kayla MacGregor<br />
  2. 2. Project Objectives<br />Convert solar energy into a usable substance to be used within the grill system<br />Compare different energy outputs of different solar energy acquiring methods<br />Store enough energy to heat the grill when the sun is not out<br />
  3. 3. Progress<br /><ul><li>Constructed Parts List
  4. 4. Decided on material for heating element
  5. 5. Created design matrices comparing and contrasting benefits and disadvantages between different methods of harnessing solar energy
  6. 6. Constructed wiring diagram heating element
  7. 7. Constructed SolidWorks model for grill housing and grate
  8. 8. Constructed basic thermal circuitry for thermal dynamic process of grill</li></li></ul><li>Parts List<br />

  14. 14. Wiring Diagram<br />
  15. 15. SolidWorks<br />
  16. 16. Heat Analysis<br />
  17. 17. Plans<br /><ul><li>Continue ESS calculations
  18. 18. Quote solar lens
  19. 19. Construct FEA
  20. 20. Purchase Parts
  21. 21. Construct budget
  22. 22. Finish Design Matrix
  23. 23. Finish researching Lenses
  24. 24. Finish researching heating element</li></li></ul><li>Continue with EES calculations for:<br />Heat Rate for:<br />Grill walls<br />Lens to heat plate 1<br />Heat plate 1 to nickel chromium<br />Nickel chromium to heat plate 2<br />Heat plate 2 to food<br />Food to grate<br />Grate to bottom of grill<br />Temperatures for:<br />Heat plate 1<br />Resistor<br />Heat plate 2<br />
  25. 25. Contact 3M Massachusetts representative to inquire about linear lens<br />Use calculations to:<br />Plug figures into FEA <br />Find appropriate gauge nickel chromium<br />Purchase parts<br />Construct Budget<br />Estimating around $800 maximum<br />
  26. 26. Problems<br /><ul><li>Grill was stolen
