Lighting - High Tech With Solar Energy

From the first time I saw, first hand, a solar cell making electricity, I was hooked. It was magnetic. I was going to have one, making electricity for me, one day. I did not get round to trying it, till about 1979. I ordered $400.00 price of solar cells from an organization in California. I made a makeshift solar panel with them, which labored for a while.

A lot later, in 1993, I tracked down a company in Calgary, who sold solar panels. I purchased 1 for about $500.00. It was concerning the size of a big beach towel. It was blue in shade and was mounted inside an aluminium frame. My first try at making a solar energy lighting system labored however wasn't very efficient. I used slightly incandescent bulb from a studying lamp hooked as much as an automobile battery, that was charged by the solar panel. I mounted the photo voltaic panel in probably the most sunny window I needed to put it in. At that time there weren't compact florescent mild bulbs. I preferred that photo voltaic panel a lot that I bought 3 more like it from the same company. Each panel made about 50 watts in direct sunlight.
A solar cell reacts with sunlight making an optimistic and negative charge. When you link the two expenses by attaching a wire to both ends of the photo voltaic cell, charged electrons move alongside the wire, and an electrical current flows. When the cells are joined together, to extend the voltage and amperage, you could have made a solar panel. So all this makes the electrical energy your gentle uses.
Once you have the electricity, you need to retailer it somewhere, or use it proper away. For the reason that entire point of a light-weight is to use it in the dead of night, and photo voltaic panels only work in sunlight, you need a battery, to retailer the electrical energy until you're prepared to show the sunshine on.
To maintain the electricity within the battery whereas the photo voltaic panel is linked, a diode is used. A diode is an electronic system which solely permits direct current to journey in a single direction. If the current tries to go within the different path, then the diode stops it. This occurs when a giant darkish cloud moves in front of the sun. Your panel makes so little energy the battery has more voltage push, than what is coming from the panel. So the voltage from the battery tries to ship present out from the battery. We wish the battery to charge, and never waste the electricity till we turn on the light.
To use the direct present electrical energy in a battery, to run an alternating current or family present compact florescent light, you should convert the electrical energy from the battery, to the kind of electrical energy the sunshine will use. This device is called an inverter. It makes AC electricity out of DC electricity. The inverter is connected to the battery and the facility wire from the light is plugged into the inverter.
Once you switch your gentle on, you are utilizing the power from the daylight captured through the day time. The advantage of using compact florescent mild bulbs is that they are very power environment friendly, utilizing little electricity, and giving out the same amount of sunshine utilized by a 60 watt regular light bulb. You make your own power and do not care if the ability from the electrical company goes off. Your lighting system will still work.
