solarPower ideas

After some testing and brainstorming within myself I think the main improvements I can do to this little projects are:

  • Adding a microcontroller for :
    • Output voltage (amperage??) monitoring
    • Battery overcharging
    • Getting a nice low power display to show this stuff..
  • Get the output voltage a bit higher for losses in cables or due to battery drainage.

Basically this.. Maybe I can just use an op-amp with a voltage reference to disconnect the solar power when the battery voltage it’s high enough.

More to follow, just a quick post…
