Dedicated solar powered charging kit: a system alternative to the solar charging station for single user
MetadataShow full item record
One of the best innovations of this century in the vehicle industry is the addition of battery powered motor in vehicle making it an electric vehicle. The ban on charging of batteries of electric vehicles using national grid by the government has narrowed the opportunities of those vehicles to continue its journey on the roads of Bangladesh. Our efforts allow these vehicles to continue its journey without using the national grid. It’s an off-grid solution for charging batteries of particular electric vehicles. We look to provide a dedicated solar powered charging kit dedicated to one particular vehicle that charges the batteries of only that vehicle. Our kit consists of a charge controller, a set of solar panel, a battery charge indicator and a set of battery. While one set of battery is charging the other already charged battery is on use in the vehicle. When discharged, the batteries are then easily swapped with the charged one. As this kit doesn’t require electricity from national grid it saves both electricity and electric bills. Unlike solar charging station our system provides the opportunity to charge the batteries at home without the hassle of waiting in the queue or going to the solar charging station for charging the batteries. A dedicated micro solar charging kit is best suited for the idea of our thesis as the user mounts this kit on his own rooftop making his own home a solar charging home.
