Hello everyone, my name is Steve and welcome to aquaheat.uk. Today we are showing you an installation of solar panels that we've done. This is a solar panel system that provides hot water for the property. On this particular installation, we fitted two landscape solar panels on to a flat roof and they're staggered one behind the other. We've got one here and then we have another one here. They're both connected by this pipework here, it goes down, through the roof into where the solar cylinder is we can talk about.
That afterwards. So normally on these panels on a flat roof, they do sit side by side. On this particular installation to comply with local planning, they've requested that they've been fitted one behind the other, which we can do. With reverse style solar panels you can fit them on a pitched roof they'll either be on the roof or you can fit them mounted. This particular one is landscape, you can have portrait, which is like a portrait picture basically. This particular one is a Solar Worcester Bosch FKT1W. This is a.
More high efficiency solar panel, than the standard panel they do and it soaks up more UV's from the sun because of better performance. You will even find on days like today, where it is a bit cloudy and overcast that there is a lot of UV's around and you can still heat up hot water even on days like today. That's about it really it's quite a simple installation. We fit the frames, we assemble everything. We fit the solar panels in, run the pipework lagging in, it's wired into a sensor, which we've done. The next stage is.
2016 Avion Azur Class B Motorhome Solar Package Option
I'm here at the RV factory showroom up on the balcony here so we can show you are freedom solar package that we have on our Avion Azur motorhome as you can see the Mercedes Sprinter van has a curved roof our solar panels are of a flexible variety which is more expensive but it can be mounted flat for minimal air drag our competitors solar panels are rigid class and are mounted on stantions raise from the roof which create air drag on are susceptible to damage I want to make a big point about the AGM battery supply in.
It's in the back have the as your when its not being charged by solar your engine will charge in when you have your generator on your generator or charge it so if there's always a reservoir power stored in those a GM batteries so when you need them there's power there and and if you run low on power at night when the sun's not out you can start your engine you can power back up you can turn on your generator you can charge a backup you can charge it up from you shore power so when you're sure power.
Installing Solar Panels
Photo voltaic cells are an important focus of our retrofit. The photo voltaic or PV Cells are destined for the garage roof. There is enough space there to accommodate the 1.2 kW array. Current government rebates apply to the installation of the array but rebates are subject to change so you will need to check if you qualify. The panels are mounted on aluminium frames. This is vital to ensure that they are set to the correct angle. In this location it's around 7 degrees. When it is finished we are hoping to generate about 7kwh per day which goes back into the.
Grid. It may even give us some return. The panels are interconnected and the electricity fed through to an inverter. The PV Cells have a life expectancy of more than 25 years and they are virtually maintenance free so you can be assured of getting a good return on your investment. Installing a 1.2 kW array of photovoltaic cells and connecting into the grid is a relatively simple exercise. The finished array looks very neat and in these conditions will be paying its way in no time. Ok, there it is, the photovoltaic's are installed on the roof. They are wired into here, this.
Plants vs Solar Panels Which is better at capturing solar energy AtBristol Science Centre
This is an aquatic plant called pondweed, and we can see that it's making tiny bubbles of gas. This gas is oxygen and all plants produce it in a process called photosynthesis. The word photosynthesis comes from the Greek meaning light' and putting together'. Plants use the energy in sunlight to make sugars, out of the simple ingredients of carbon dioxide and water. And do you remember those bubbles of gas we saw earlier Well. deep breath they're pretty useful. To make the sugar, or glucose, the bonds which hold the molecules together.
Have to be broken apart and rearranged. The bonds are made of electrons. So the water needs to lose electrons, and the carbon dioxide has to gain electrons. And the colour of leaves gives us a clue to what is responsible for this rearrangement of electrons. Every leaf cell contains a pigment called chlorophyll'. It's the chlorophyll which makes the leaves green and helps make photosynthesis happen. Chlorophyll has the amazing ability to release electrons when exposed to sunlight. The electrons from the chlorophyll are replaced by splitting apart water into ions of hydrogen and oxygen.
The excess oxygen is then released into the air. The flow of electrons from the chlorophyll is then used with the remaining hydrogen ions to produce the energy needed to synthesise glucose from molecules of carbon dioxide. So sunlight provides the energy we need to move electrons from one molecule to another turning light energy into chemical energy ready for our plant to use. But can we do the same thing artificially How does photosynthesis compare to a solar panel Well, solar panels like those on the Energy Tree.
Use light as an energy source, and they also generate a flow of electrons. But they don't store chemical energy they convert light energy into electrical energy. They do this by using something called the photoelectric effect'. When photons come and hit a metal surface, they knock off electrons. We then capture and store these electrons. These photovoltaic cells are made of a silicon crystal. But silicon is a poor conductor of electricity. So impurities are added to help. This creates something called a 'semiconductor'. As light hits the surface, electrons are knocked loose.
The electrons then flow from areas with a high concentration, to areas with a low concentration. It's this flow of electrons which generates an electric current. We've done this on a big scale on our roof. We have 560 square metres of solar panels, which generate 47,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year. So which is better, leaves or solar panels How efficient is each system at transforming the energy from sunlight Well, a leaf can turn only three percent of light energy hitting its surface into chemical energy through photosynthesis.
Whereas, a solar panel of the same area can turn roughly ten percent of the light energy into electrical energy that's over three times more efficient! But it's not quite as simple as that. There's all sorts of other things to take into account as well. Such as the time of day, the location, types of plant, and transport and storage costs on the other side as well. Solar panels may be able to absorb more wavelengths of light than leaves, but leaves can grow and repair when damaged. The Energy Tree may be able to charge your phone,.
Printing Australias largest solar cells extended version
Dr Scott Watkins We're really pleased to commission what is now Australia's largest facility for printing thin film solar cells. This equipment that has been purchased over the last few months and commissioned in our labs here in Melbourne will enable us to print A3 size solar cells. We've rapidly scaled up making our devices from fingernails size in the lab to A3 size devices that are fully printed now. And at this size we're definitely up there with the best in the world. In the short term we're looking for applications in consumer devices.
And small integrated electronics. In the longer term we see these materials being able to be coated onto buildings, into windows and on roofs to provide power in a wide variety of locations and circumstances. Dr David Jones One of the advantages of the technology that we're developing is we're actually using off the shelf printers, printers you can go out and buy. And therefore we're using a screen printer, one that you would normally use in label manufacture or screen printing of tshirts or other things. So these are commercially available printers.
So the outcome of this will be prototype demonstrators that we can give to a number of people to examine what the capability of the new technology is. Dr YiBing Cheng I do see this project is a very good example of a collaboration involves both, involves the CSIRO, Monash University and Melbourne University. And that we have a very close collaboration with people working each others laboratory and we have regular meetings every two weeks. We do see that through this kind of collaboration and we can build up a critical mass and.
