Hello Friends.. Today I am Here with another Technological Stuffs. In this Tutorial we will Learn, How to make a solar powered car. As the world is looking towards renewable energy resources to fulfil the needs, why not to look towards the automotive and transport industry as well? Here is one of the best project to look after for greater use of renewable energy for unlimited use in transportation. The first solar car was invented by William G. Cobb of General Motors as a tiny 15-inch vehicle. The first solar car in history was really too small to drive. In 1962 when the first car with a solar panel that a person could drive was demonstrated to the public.
Lets,have a look on the Emerging Technology !!
How to make a solar powered car
What is a Solar Car?
A solar vehicle is an electric vehicle run by a type of renewable energy. This is the solar energy obtained from the sun usually by the panels which are on the roof of the vehicle.
- Solar Array
- Power Trackers
- Motor & Controller
Solar arrays starts with a single solar energy cell called as a photovoltaic cell. “Photo”means light, and “voltaic” means voltage, which is a unit of potential electrical energy.It is known as solar array or photovoltaic cell.
Power trackers condition the electricity coming from the solar array to maximize the power and deliver it either to the batteries for storage or to the motor controller for drive.It also protect battery from damaging by overcharging.
Moters are the most important part of solar cars. It should work with optimal power and the efficiency should be high. An electric motor is a device produce mechanical energy.
This is a device which is used to control the demanded speed of motor for the better speed.
We use it for the strength and safety in solar cars.
How Solar Energy works?
Firstly thing the solar array converg sunlight together. When sunlight is bought together,the solar energy changes into electrical energy.
Power Trackers in the car receive the energy from the solar array,After it convert energy, it send the energy to the battery.
The batteries stores the energy from the power tracker and makes the motor move. This energy is send to the motor and controller to make the car run.
The Motor & Controller adjusts the amount of energy that flows to the motor. The motor uses that energy to drive the wheels.
Advantages of Solar Car
- Gasoline independence.
- Solar cars are noiseless.
- Longer life span.
- Low maintenance.
- Renewable and infinite source of energy.
