SOLAR POWERED CAR

Energy - Demand is one of the major threads in our country. Finding solutions, to meet the energy demand is the greatest challenge for Social Scientist, Engineers and Industrialist of our Country. Now-a-days the concept and technology of employing renewable energy becomes very popular in various day to day applications. Sunlight is considered to be a source of energy which finds applications in Automobile Sectors to reduce the consumption of fuel and environment friendly. With the help of this technology, a conventional car is designed and modified to make solar energy powered car.
solar-car The solar vehicle is a step in saving these non renewable sources of energy. The basic principle of solar car is to use energy that is stored in a battery during and after charging it from a solar panel. In this project, an used Maruthi 800 cars engine is replaced by a D.C electric motor of 4 kW. A 12 V with two number of 150 AH batteries are used to charge the D.C motor which serves here as an engine and moves the vehicle in required speed. Voltage regulator is connected to accelerator pedal of the car. It is used for regulating current to vary the speed of the motor. The batteries are charged by two 120 W solar module which is mounted on the roof of the car. The motor is connected to the front wheel of the vehicle through the existing gear box which is used to vary the speed of vehicle. The car has been successfully tested for various road conditions.

Mainly passenger vehicles are on short distance operation in urban conditions. Using a battery to run the vehicle incorporated with solar energy is much cheaper than either petrol or diesel. The vehicle is pollution free and does not emit toxic exhausts that are harmful to earth. The vehicle runs smoothly without noise thereby reducing noise pollution. The vehicles thus serves an a alternate for the depleting fossil fuels.This technology is most suitable for energy alternate using devices. The people who wish to travel can accept this proved technology for implementation. Moreover the same technique and technology can also be extended for all types of Automobiles in the transportation sector.
