Abstract

Renewable energy has become important today, since the world is shortage oil as the main source of energy. Government and private organizations seriously do many research and development activities towards the new energy sources from solar, biomass, hydro and wind energy. As solar energy is concern, it has many advantages. Some of the advantages are it has high reliability, low operating cost, environmental friendly, modularity and low construction cost. In this project report, a survey of the applications of solar energy systems using photovoltaic modules in various fields has been done. An experiment of the performance of solar panels having different structures of silicon materials was also studied. Three panels having structures of mono-crystalline, poly crystalline and amorphous silicon materials were placed under identical conditions. The power generated by each panel was calculated and the results were compared. In order to obtain better understanding of solar energy principles, a white board mechanized eraser was fabricated. A mechanism that can erase the writing on the white board by using the solar energy from photovoltaic module was fabricated.
