Generally when we orient a solar panel in a particular direction the Sun light will be. incident at various angles throughout the day instead of the perpendicular incidence it will be incident at various angles by which we will not be able to get maximum output the output will be maximum only at a particular time of the day but when we orient the solar panel perpendicularly to direction of the sunlight then we'll be able to achieve more output this can be done by attaching the stepper motor which is run by a.

Why Should We Launch Solar Panels Into Space
This episode of DNews is brought to you by Full Sail University. This week the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency announced it wants to get solar power from space. I'm having flashbacks to disasters from SimCity2000. Hello! I'm Trace. Thank you for watching DNews. Back in the 1960s, American aerospace engineer Peter Glaser proposed launching solar panels into space, and beaming the power they collect back to the surface for our use. Since the late 60s the idea has been in a holding pattern mainly because of the expense and worries about maintenance and equipment, but thanks.
To recent developments in solar panel tech the Japanese space firm JAXA says they can finally try it. The plan is ambitious at minimum and cost hasn't yet been calculated, BUT JAXA is determined, and they're not the only ones. The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory is also interested in spacebased solar. The reason everyone's looking up, is because that's where the sun sits! If we can put a satellite in orbit to collect the sun's rays BEFORE the atmosphere filters them out, and without the worry of a cloudy day, that would be rad. The JAXA Space Based Power System.
Or SBPS will orbit 22,400 miles up, and if done to their specs, would completely replace a nuclear power plant by producing 1 gigawatt of electricity enough to power halfamillion homes. Their plan uses a 10,000 metric ton system, which is. well pretty ridiculous. The largest rocket ever launched was the Saturn V it took our boys to the moon and could only lift about 130 metric tons. Once the power is gathered, a converter in space will convert the electricity into a microwave beam not like in your house, literally waves of energy that are.
On the micro scale. Microwaves can be converted from energy at 80 percent efficiency, which means there would be some loss, but it would be pretty damn efficient about 48 of the power collected would reach consumers. Which doesn't sound great, but it really is. To make sure the array is getting sunlight 24hours a day, JAXA plans to put mirrors on either side of the planet to reflect sunlight at the collector all the time. The Japanese are announcing their plan so far in advance in the hope other countries.
Will gather and help realize the dream of solar from space. Once created, it could provide clean, unlimited energy anywhere on the planet, regardless of remote location. Here's the kicker. It would cost about a trillion dollars. Which sounds like a lot, but it's like 125 bucks per person on the planet in 2030. And that's WAY more than you're paying doe your power bill. Not to mention oil wars and all the pollution, ecological damage, mining and drilling that goes with fossil fuels. We've got commenting areaaassss, check them out and type your feelings on spacebased.
Solar so we can all talk about it! None of this would be possible without computers to run the system, and we need people to write the computer programs. Full Sail University in Florida offers courses to help train tech professionals by blending code and realworld experience. Students of Full Sail have handson access to technology on their first day, get a discounted laptop and all the software they'll need to earn degrees in software, mobile and web development.

Can Korea take lead in Solar Panel Industry ,
Solar power is the biggest and fastest growing sector in the renewable energy market as it's expected to become an affordable and feasible alternative to fossil fuels. Korea is making increasing use of this energy source. but it is going to be a global player For this week's Industry Insight, here's Song Jisun. This is the biggest solar power plant in the capital that started operating this summer. It's equivalent to 13 football fields with a capacity of 5point6 megawatts enough for 22hundred households a year. Solar energy is quickly rising as the next.
Generation of renewable energy here in Korea accounting for 98 percent of all renewable power plants built in the first half this year. This solar panel system has been set up on the roof of this waterfiltering plant and we have completed a couple of other solar power facilities like this for the Seoul Metropolitan Government. It's fully operational even on cloudy days and only takes three months to install and operate. The market for these solar facilities is booming in Korea. with most being bulit by government or public agencies. Over the past decade. solar energy has emerged.
As the world's biggest source of renewable energy, overtaking wind power. Last year alone it created half of total electricity generated from renewable energy sources. This prospective market is forecast to expand by 10percent each year by 2030. with China and India likely accounting for half of the global demand. By then, the cost of generating electricity from solar power is expected to reach similar levels to burning fossil fuel meaning it could become more widespread without the support of government subsidies. as it mostly depends on at the moment.
The biggest competition in the industry comes from China which produces 80percent of the global demand. at prices 20 to 30 percent cheaper than Korea. Backed by government support, Chinese companies have been producing well over the market demand. with half of the world's top 10 solar panel producers based in China. It's not easy to counter them in terms of price, so Korean firms must improve their costefficiency, at the same time revving up quality and technology. Around 40 players are in Korea's solar power generating market with small and midsized.
Companies focusing on solar cells or modules. while large conglomerates aim to tackle the global market by equipping a complete chain of production to service. We've established a value chain from solar component production to system maintenance. And we aim to expand the solar power generation infrastructure to even include households. Industry experts point out that it is also crucial the government take steps to speed up growth of the domestic solar power industry. To expand its economy of scale and improve its profitability, they add. Korea needs to ease regulations concerning installation.
Are Solar Panels Going To 300 Watts Soon
Right now solar panels are around the 200 watt range. Are they ever Going To 300 Watts is a question I asked John Shaw project engineer of Bella Energy. Absolutely, any manufacturer can do that right now. You shouldn't really look at how many watts a panel has rather how many watts per square foot can be attained. Behind you is a Sanyo 200, if you increase the foot print of that panel by 50 it is a 300 watt panel. The reality is what you need to be looking at to measure the level of progress of the.
Technology is how many watts per square foot. Instead of thinking will there ever be a 300 watt panel surely there will be even next year. To get at the point of your question is do you ever think we will be ever to achieve a 300 watt panel in 15 square feet And yes, I do. Right now standard efficiency panels are in the ballpark of about 12 watts per square foot, it ranges from 10 to 13. Standard efficiency panels Evergreens, Sharps, Kyocera, Shot , Suntech etc. Keep in mind this is the residential affordable panels, NASA works with panels that are about.
30 watts per square foot but you are talking a million bucks a panel. Then there are high efficiency panels of the ones we know of are SunPower and Sanyo. And Sunpower and Sanyo are approximately 15 watts per square foot. Both are very good products. Sanyo I believe has a little bit of an edge because they has an amorphous or thin film rap around the silicon cell which allows them to maintain high production in high heat. One more reason and I will tie this in. The Sanyo's are shipped with a minus 0 and a plus 5 percent so when you buy a 200 watt.
Sanyo panel you will get hypothetically in standard test conditions 75 degrees at sea level you will get 200 watts or up to 210 watts. All other panels including specifically Sunpower are or 5, so you could buy a 210 watt Sunpower cell and it could actually perform at 199 watts where you could buy a 200 watt Sanyo cell it could perform at 210 watts, but no less than 200 watts. So that and the fact the Sanyo's will out perform Sunpower apples to apples same azimuth and pitch in high heat because of this amorphous or thin film rap 10 in high heat peak days.
Technology developed in New Mexico could make solar cells smaller, more powerful
DON'T WANT THEIR EMPLOYEES TO USE THEIR PHONES DURING THE DAY, BUT A NEW STUDY SHOWS, TAKING A SMARTPHONE BREAK MAY ACTUALLY BE A GOOD THING. RESEARCHERS AT KANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY FOUND EMPLOYEES WHO WERE ALLOWED TO TAKE MICROBREAKS ON THEIR PHONES, WERE HAPPIER AND MORE PRODUCTIVE. THE STUDY ALSO FOUND THAT PEOPLE SPEND AN AVERAGE OF 22 MINUTES DURING THEIR 8 HOUR DAY, ON THEIR SMARTPHONES. AND RIGHT NOW, THE SANDIA NATIONAL LABS ARE WORKING ON MAKING THOSE SMARTPHONES AND OTHER DEVICES SMALLER, AND BETTER. KOAT ACTION 7 NEWS REPORTER MIKE.
SPRINGER SHOWS US THE SCIENCE, THAT COULD SOON END UP IN YOUR HOME. IT LOOKS QUITE SIMPLE. USING PRESSURE AGAINST TWO DIAMOND PLATES TO CREATE THESE SMALLER, MORE FLEXIBLE NANO WIRES. ELECTRONS GOING THROUGH WIRES WILL NOW HAVE A SHORTER DISTANCE TO TRAVEL. MAKING FOR SMALLER, MORE POWERFUL ELECTRONICS. you produce the device much more faster, efficient and cleaner IT TOOK DOCTOR HONGYOU FAN AT THE SANDIA NATIONAL LABORATORIES 4 YEARS TO PREFECT IT. HE SAYS BECAUSE YOU CAN USE IT TO MAKE WIRES FIT ALMOST ANY SHAPE OR SIZE THE.
TECHNOLOGY HAS ALMOST ENDLESS APPLICATIONS. IT COULD EVEN BE USED FOR THINGS LIKE CHEMICAL SENSORS, LASERS AND ANTENNAS. it could even make some of the everyday devices we use like our cell phones, smaller and more powerful. FAN SAYS IT'S CHEAPER THAN THE STANDARD CHEMICAL APPROACH USED TO PRODUCE THOSE NANO WIRES TODAY. HE SAYS HIS PRODUCTION PROCESS IS MUCH SHORTER BECAUSE YOU CAN AVOID SOME OF THE STEPS. so unlike the chemistry, so you have to make them in a solution and separate and clean them and then put into device.
