Scientists Develop Solar Cells That Can Be Ink-Jet Printed. 3D printing promises to be the renewable energy source of the future, but modern manufacturing techniques are a little lacking.

Scientists Develop Solar Cells That Can Be Ink-Jet Printed

A team of scientists and engineers from Alto university have come up with a method of producing solar cells through ink-jet printing. The technology is so much like printing that cells can be made in any sort of image you desire, like the one of the team below. [Image Source: Alto] “The slow process in which the light absorbing dye molecules are adsorbed from solution on the nanocrystalline TiO2 photoelectrode film has been a handicap to the fast and cost-effective fabrication of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) using printing techniques.” ~ Hashmi The key market potential seen in this technique is self-illuminating signage that would require no wiring or electricity. According to Futurism, the team tested the panels over the course of 1000 heating and light cycles and found absolutely no decrease in efficiency.

Advance Voltage Drop Calculator and Voltage Drop Formula. According to the NEC (National Electric Code) [210.19 A (1)] FPN number 4 and [215.2 A (3)] FPN number 2, the allowable Voltage drop for feeders is 3% and the acceptable voltage drop for final sub circuit and branch circuit is 5% for proper and efficient operation.

Advance Voltage Drop Calculator and Voltage Drop Formula

For example, if the Supply voltage is 110V, then the value of allowable voltage drop should be; Allowable Voltage Drop = 110 x (3/100) = 3.3V. We have already discussed the selection of proper size of cable for electrical wiring installation in SI and British system with examples. In the above article, we have also explained the voltage drop calculation and voltage drop formula and online cable size calculator. Today, we are going to share Online Advance Voltage Drop Calculator and Voltage Drop formulas in detail. →Also check. Homemade Wind Generator - Renewable Energy. Are you headed for the beach or going camping in the mountains?

Homemade Wind Generator - Renewable Energy

Maybe you live on a boat, visit a remote cabin or you're living off-grid. Electricity is yours for the taking as long as the wind is blowing... And you can get it on the CHEAP with an easy homemade wind generator. Light up that storeroom, barn or use the generator to keep all your vehicle batteries charged too. My off-grid cabin's electricity comes from solar and wind power, stored in 6-Volt golf cart batteries. If you can turn a wrench and operate an electric drill, you can build this simple generator in two days: one day of chasing down parts and one day assembling the components.

How To Build Wind Generator using Floppy Stepper Motor.


How To Build Wind Generator using Floppy Stepper Motor

Before connecting any USB device it is MANDATORY to check polarity and exact voltage (it has to be between 4.9 and 5.3 Volts) on USB connector using multimeter!!! Now we need to make the remaining mechanical parts for the wind generator. We need to prepare a bracket and a turbine (propeller). Bracket can be made out of aluminum tube with 3-4mm diameter. Do not forget to fix it firmly. Generator (stepper motor) can be easily fastened directly to the bracket using clamps or using a metal “L” profile. Windbelt Cheap Micro Wind Generator. Find out more about Windbelt - an affordable efficient micro wind generator home > wind | newsUnlike PV solar panels, wind turbine generators do not scale downwards well.

Windbelt Cheap Micro Wind Generator

While large wind turbines can generate huge quanties of electricity very efficiently and relatively cheaply, as the size of the wind turbine is reduced, efficiency reduces and cost per Watt power jumps enormously.Windbelt offers an alternative for small scale wind power generation dispensing with the turbine altogether while producing power at a (claimed) efficiency of 10-30 times greater than that of a similarly rated wind turbine.

Windbelt Wind Generator Windbelt is an innovation of Shawn Frayne (pictured above) a 28 year old inventor from California, USA. Frayne developed a simple device with a taut Mylar membrane fitted with a pair of Neodymium magnets that oscillate in and out of coils of magnet wire because of the mechanical resonance of the taut membrane with wind blowing across it.
