RE210 SOLAR ENERGY, Computer Interface
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

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.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • 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.
