When looking at the usefulness of solar power, you have to consider how much power the appliances that you use will tax the system. For example if you wish to use a solar powered generator to run... More > your hot water, you really don't have to put that much effort into figuring out that a couple of panels will do the trick. But if you want to run a window-type air conditioner or a 24-hour freezer, you would have to consider the possibility of adding more power. Power-hungry appliances are not conducive to solar power. It can be accomplished, but it is best to rely on the power grid for your larger appliances. Then you can selectively pick the appliances that you want to use with solar power. This can be for only one room. For example in your bedroom you may have a couple of lamps, a television, and a fan.< Less

As a renewable energy source, solar energy presents an exciting opportunity for India. While the current 4ontribution of solar energy to the total India's energy needs is insignificant, in the medium... More > and long run, it is expected that solar energy, especially solar PV will form a vital component of the country's energy mix. The most important barrier that had stopped Solar PV from becoming a mainstream renewable energy resource is the high cost of producing power from the resource. This high cost is in turn a direct result of the high capital costs of the solar PV panels and the balance of system required. This white paper titled Not Just Power provides inputs and insights on the diverse opportunities available in the Solar PV industry. This has been prepared by Energy Alternatives India (EAI), a leading consulting and research organization for the Indian renewable energy industry.< Less

The book describes a stand alone solar energy system, made with a 24 Volt wet (open) lead acid battery and two solar panels from 200 Watt. A schematic from a simple power battery charger with... More > transistors (2N3055) is published. It descibes how to get power inverters (24 V DC to 230 V AC, max 1500 Watt) into service with a simple soft start device. Schematics from switchboxes (switch between the AC grid and the AC inverter) are given. The approach is LOW TECH. More info can be found in the preview. IMPORTANT: on page 44 you find a trickle charger schematic. I found that the trickle charge values are too low for the Dutch solar situation given a permanent pull out of energy from the lead acid battery. Better values: 80 AH= 500 mA, 40 AH=250 mA, 20AH=125 mA, 10 AH=50 mA (these values given a for a constant use of energy from the battery). On page 79 pin 2 sets V ref, experiment with the 6K8 and 1K resistor (make them higher) for a better switch off moment.< Less
