Research team of CT Group Maqsudan develops PIR based solar light system
This solar system consists of a solar panel module
Jalandhar: The research team of CT Group of Institutions, North Campus (Maqsudan), including Navdeep Singh, Assistant Professor (ECE), CTITR, under the guidance of Dr. Jasdeep Kaur Dhami, Director has made a PIR based solar light system. This solar system consists of a solar panel module that converts light energy (Photons) from the sun to generate electricity in direct current (DC) form. This module is fixed firmly on top with suitable tilt and inclination so as to receive maximum sunlight throughout the day. Thus produces suitable voltage and current, which is used to charge the battery. This energy stored in the battery is used to light up the LED during night time.
The main feature of this light is Walk By, Lights On: Motion Sensor of Our Solar light can detect up to 140 Degree with a longer sensor length of 26 Feet. Ip 65 waterproof rechargeable solar lamp with solar panel can convert up to 17% of the sunlight into electricity energy.
Telling more about the project, Navdeep said, “This system also consists of charge controller which is used to control the charging of the batteries. Since the output from solar panels are variable and needs adjustments, charge controllers fetches the variable voltage/current from solar panels, condition it to suit the safety of the batteries. The main functions of charge controllers are to prevent over-charging of batteries from solar panels, over-discharging of batteries to the load and to control the functionalities of the load. The charge controller protects the battery from over charge and deep discharge. “
While appreciating the efforts of the team, Dr. Jasdeep Kaur Dhami, Director said that in spite of all these features, this development can be implemented as a sustainable energy. Also, we are planning to solarize some part of our campus too.
Manbir Singh, Managing Director, CT Group applauded the efforts made by the team and motivated them for coming up with similar useful projects in future too.
