Remote labs "Alterantive energy"

Investigate remotely the sustainable energy technologies.

About This Course

The remote lab “Photovoltaic Application” has been designed to study the energy production by photovoltaic panels. This application will provide the user with the knowledge and the essential skills about the photovoltaic panel operation during the production of electrical energy from solar energy.

This is paragraph 2 of the long course description. Add more paragraphs as needed. Make sure to enclose them in paragraph tags.There are six remote labs supported by this equipment Lab No. 1. Measurement of volt-ampere characteristics of a solar panel and determination of its efficiency Lab No. 2. Investigation of the influence of operating conditions on the characteristics of a solar panel at a fixed intensity Lab No. 3. Study of the influence of temperature conditions on the efficiency of solar panels Lab No. 4. Investigation of the influence of the angle of rotation of the solar panel relative to the light source on the current-voltage characteristic Lab No. 5. Parallel connection of the solar panel and blocking diodes Lab No. 6. Series connection of the solar panel and bypass diodes

Expected Prior Knowledge

Prerequisites: general understanding of energy resources economics and management

Students should study all the suggested materials in the consequent order, pass all the course tests and be active in discussion on the course webpage. The individual project is the key element of the course and is mandatory in order to complete the course. The students are strongly advised to work continually with the individual project during the course to distribute the workload. The students also need to dedicate some of the course time to reviewing peers writing.
