Each solar PV panel produced has certain specifications related to its power output and current flow. Your solar PV panel is rated at 2.4 Watts of power at 200 milliamperes (.200 amperes) of current. In this lab you will measure the current flow of this panel over a 20 minute period. You will also calculate its power output and energy production over time. You will eventually calculate how large of a PV array (PV panels wired together in series) you would need to completely supply your energy needs for a typical residence. Learn More$9.99
Much is made of the amount of energy lost by fixed PV systems because they don’t work with the optimal angle of the sun. In this lab we will investigate how changing the angle of your panel varies the amount of current produced by the panel, and how that would relate to a typical energy bill. You will need to perform this lab at a time when sky cover is very consistent. It is preferable to have sunny skies, but a uniform cloud cover will work. Learn More$9.99
