  • Solar powered railway track monitoring system

    Due to increased railway accidents, we propose to install a camera on the face of the train to monitor the railway track up to 2Kms at all times. We also plan to install LCD screens in every coach, which displays the live screening of the camera. This will make sure that at all times some passenger on the train can monitor the tracks. This whole system will be powered by solar energy harnessed using solar panels mounted on the train top. They will track the Maximum Power Point (MPP) of the solar array and the power generated will be stored in Li-ion batteries. This power is utilized during the absence of sun and its output voltage is regulated using DC/DC converters according to the energy needs of the camera, Wi-Fi and LCD.

  • Design and implementation of solar based smart street lightning system

    The huge amount of electrical power is consumed in lighting the streets. However, vehicles pass with very low rate in specific periods of time and parts of the streets are not occupied by vehicles over time. In this paper, we propose a system that detects the vehicle from certain radius and automatically switches on the light till the vehicle crosses a particular radius. Logically, this system may save a large amount of the electrical power and increases the lifetime of lamps. Also as the energy used for lightning is taken from solar energy at day time. Thus energy used is renewable. A GSM based system is also integrated in the design which is used to send a message to substation if any fault in street lights is detected. The major operation of this system is to save the excess use of electrical energy by using solar panels and motion sensors along with less manpower requirement since the GSM modem can detect the error and location and inform it to the station. This system automatically controls and monitors the light of the streets. It can light only the parts that have vehicles and help on the maintenance of the lighting equipments.

  • Automatic edge identification for accurate analysis of thermographic images of solar panels

    This paper proposes a segmentation method to analyze thermographic images of large solar fields with the aim to identify the borders of photovoltaic modules. This kind of analysis allows to correctly attribute possible faults, revealed by thermography, to a well specified solar panel. Moreover, the knowledge of the specific model of solar panel allows to bring the analysis to the single solar cell. This latter feature can help to eliminate some false positive that the mere observation of hot spots might produce.

  • A Two Legs Darlington Based Circuit for on Site Tracing of Solar Panels I-V Curve

    The I-V curve of solar panel, embedded in series connected strings is traced with high accuracy by means of a two legs, Darlington based, portable circuit. The circuit is able to disconnect the solar panel from the string before starting the measurement; a bypass path for the string current prevents interruption of the power production. The period of disconnection and measurement can be set to cover periodic measurement over a whole day. On demand measurements are also available thanks to Bluetooth communication. Measurements performed with a homemade prototype show the reliability of the proposed solution.

  • Improved maximum power point tracking algorithm using a Fuzzy Logic Controller for a Photovoltaic System

    In this paper, an improved the maximum power point tracking (MPPT) in a Photovoltaic (PV) System is designed by using a Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC). The objectives of designing the FLC for MPPT in the PV systems are to accelerate the MPPT rate, and to set a smaller oscillating zone around the maximum power point (MPP). The proposed FLC based MPPT adopts a set of variable step sizes with regard to flexible criteria. Also, for the proposed MPPT implementation, a simple Discontinuous Conduction Mode (DCM) algorithm is considered. Experimental results of the proposed FLC based MPPT show that an improvement is observed in terms of tracking of the MPPT, and maximizing of the output power of the PV modules compared to the conventional Perturb and Observe (P&O;) algorithm.

  • Performance of Monocrystalline Silicon solar cell- Influence of dust on Ultra-Violet and Visible region during early stage of deposition

    In general, solar irradiance reaching the photovoltaic (PV) panel decides the power output. But the dust deposition on the panel decreases the energy conversion efficiency over time. Dust affects several parameters and in this study, the focus is given on the light absorbance during initial stages of dust deposition. It is seen that the dust deposition has deteriorated the irradiance reaching the panel. Particles of various size has hindered different wavelength region of the solar spectrum, which has been understood by simulation. Pronounced effect is seen in Ultra-Violet (UV) range light during early stage of dust deposition. Hindrance in visible region of the light is dominated by larger particles.

  • Design of controller for efficient solar electric drives

    This paper proposes a design of controller which switches between the battery and solar panel such that the solar energy is efficiently utilized by the load, most suitable for Solar Electric Drives. When Load-current and Charging current of the battery, can be supplied from Solar Source, the Load is connected to Solar Source directly and simultaneously Battery gets charged separately without any load connected to it. This is done with help of controller. So, the Battery gets charged quickly, load also is driven simultaneously. This improves the Running time of the Battery. When the battery is fully charged, the Battery must be disconnected from supply to prevent Over Charging. Also, when load requires less current and Battery is fully charged. The load can be directly supplied from solar source. Thus, Battery can be disconnected. So, this, will make the battery's usage less, which will improve the life time of the battery. When Current can't be supplied from Solar Source, the battery is required to supply the Load. So, Battery is connected to load also it gets charged simultaneously from the Solar PV source. This is similar to Operation of Normal Solar Electric Drive Systems. All these operations are performed with help of Programmed Controller. The Parameters like Current, Voltage or Speed along with its characteristics are fed to microcontroller. So, the microcontroller knows when such conditions occur and operate accordingly.

  • Experimental analysis of photovoltaic system for continuity of supply using AVR microcontroller

    In India as thousands of villages are located in remote area where electrification is tedious and expensive. Such villages can be electrified either by extending the grids of the existing power systems or by constructing isolated new power systems, with the help of renewable energy sources. Conventional methods face problems regarding its affordability. Renewable energy based power system is possible option for the electrification of these villages. This is challenge in front of researchers to regulate the output power to cope with load demand, as RES are whether dependent with varying daily and seasonal patterns. Combining the renewable energy generation with energy storage bank & ac power from substation will enable the power generated from a renewable energy sources to be more reliable, affordable and used more efficiently. If the normal source of power, most often the serving utility, if fails, emergency and standby power systems are designed to provide an alternate source of power. As reliability of these types of systems is critical and good design practices are essential. RES's based solar systems are a potentially significant solution to rural ac electricity needs for continuity of electrical supply.
