Description of DIDAC Combined Wind And Solar Generator Demonstrator
A small solar panel with nominal 10W output is connected to a battery charge control system. The charge controller is also connected to a small wind turbine. The charge controller can be connected to the supplied 12V deep cycle lead acid battery.
Combined Wind And Solar Power Generation is supplied with a 500W solar simulator that allows the panel to be irradiated and generate power within the laboratory. This allows students to investigate the relative magnitude of incoming solar radiation, relative to power generated.
