Biggest Solar Power Plants

Introduction Solar power plants are power generating systems which produce energy by converting sunlight into electricity. This is done either directly by using photovoltaic (PV) cells, or indirectly by using concentrated solar power (CSP). Concentrated solar power plants make use of such components as lenses, mirrors, and tracking systems to focus a large area of […]

MPPT charge controller and its advantages compared to standard PWM

The sun gifts us a huge amount of energy. On average, the amount of solar radiation reaching the edge of the Earth’s atmosphere perpendicular to the sun ray is about 1300w per square meter. According to the UN’s Development Program, the amount of annual solar energy reaching the earth’s surface is 1,575 – 49,837 x 1018 […]
