This is a bench mounted unit designed for a study of electricity generation form sunlight, storage and use of energy.
The unit consists of a solar panel on a tilting and rotating base, an inverter, a regulator, a storage battery, load circuit, a fan, lamp load, voltmeters and ammeters.
The panel is mounted on a tilting and rotating base.
- Current-voltage characteristics of solar panel.
- Effect of shading on performance.
- Effect of panel inclination on performance.
- Working principles of load regulator (current reversal, low unloading and overloading protection)
- Principles of inverter.
