With an Assembled & Tested PCB

DIY kit comes with an Assembled and Tested PCB ensuring 100% output guarantee. Includes hardware for assembling project from scratch. Fully supported by elaborate documentation, audio visuals and tools to independently carry out the project work.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Solar energy is converted into electrical energy by photo-voltaic cells.  This energy is stored in batteries during day time to be utilized during night time. This project deals with a controlled charging mechanism that avoids over charge, deep discharge and under /over voltage of the battery and load.

In this project, a solar panel is used to charge a battery. A set of op-amps are used as comparators to continuously monitor the panel voltage, load current, etc. Indications are also provided by a green LED for fully charged battery while   red LEDs are to indicate under charged, overloaded and deep discharge condition.

The charge controller also uses a MOSFET as power semiconductor switch to ensure cut off the load in low battery or overload condition. A transistor is used to bypass solar energy to a dummy load while the battery gets fully charged. This protects the battery  from getting over charged.

Furthermore, this project can be enhanced by using a microcontroller and a GSM modem to communicate the status of the system to a control room via SMS.

I was searching for projects related to solar power management like that i find out edgefx.
I was interested to take the DIY kit,want to do it my own,that’s why i purchased here.
Purchased through online.
Services are good and fast response.

I come to know about Edgefx while I was searching for wireless projects in the Google.I decided because the project seems to be suitable for final year project. I like the hardware part in my kit.Yes the kit delivered on time with the right components.No I purchased directly through online. No improvements.
