Solar Power, panels, charge regulator controller, battery…

Epic fail! I should have said two hours, not half an hour!

Electronic Basics #31: Schottky Diode & Zener Diode

As you might know the common diode is a very useful electrical component. By applying a positive voltage to its anode and a negative voltage to its cathode, current will flow through it and simultaneously create the characteristic forward voltage drop across the diode which is always mentioned in the datasheet. But if we reverse […]

Electronic Basics #29: Solar Panel & Charge Controller

if you are looking for easy-to-use regenerative energy source nowadays then your best bet is to do those solar panels by simply shining light on them they can create an output voltage that is capable of powering small loads or even bigger ones if we increase the size of the solar panel but how can […]

Why all solar panels are secretly LEDs (and all LEDs are secretly solar panels)

Diodes are really simple electrical components. They’re designed to only allow electricity to flow in one direction, a bit like a valve. But, because of the way we make diodes, they’re capable of so much more than that. In the mid-1900s some curiously minded scientists noted that if you push electricity through a diode (or, […]
