Performance analysis of solar car considering the environmental impact
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this project is to analyze the performance of a solar powered car considering environmental impact. A solar powered car which has taken into consideration has already been developed. Though the theoretical analysis of the previous research did not perform the environmental study. In this study the performance of the solar car has been analyzed considering input incident energy calculation along with the battery model and the electrical output analysis with changing in different masses and environmental parameters. Moreover, an analysis has been studied about the environmental impact, based on the Carbon dioxide emission from burning fossil fuels and power plants comparing the gasoline and the solar car. Where the results are very promising as the Solar Car can eliminate up to 60% of the carbon dioxide emission related to the transportation sector from Dhaka city and improve public health. Furthermore, a life cycle cost analysis has also been studied. Lastly, the advantages of replacing conventional gasoline cars with Solar cars has been proposed to control the CO2 emission from the transportation sector, based on the performance, environmental and economic analysis done.
