Harnessing the sun with solar garden light
With the world`s non-renewable resources being consumed at an alarming rate, it`s no surprise that when the new curriculum was released, 2 ½ years ago, the word `environmental` appeared in the key concepts. The programme of study goes on to add that this includes the opportunity to explore issues relating to sustainability. Therefore, teachers are
Solar Panel Optimizing Battery Charger
Figure shows the V-I curve for a typical solar panel (Sharp ND-224U1F), and output power under different lighting conditions. The solar panel behaves like a constant current source at high current, and like a voltage source at low current. The transition region is where the highest power can be obtained. The voltage and particularly the current...

Ultrasonic distance finder circuit
The circuit described here uses ultrasonic oscillations and operates based on the propagation velocity of these oscillations in the air. Thus, we can easily determine the distance of two points if the time within which the wave travels this distance is measured. There are three main categories of distance measurement methods in use: a) By...
