Battery Supercharging System in Electrical Vehicles Using Photovoltaic Panels

Zenon Syroka



In this project, a system was designed there was designed a system for charging batteries in electric vehicles using photovoltaic panels. Low cost of operation, cheap reliable construction and simple user interface were among the main criterias taken into account.

Each energy source was carefully selected and, modules were used so that they could in the way to power the microcontroller and charge the energy storage source.

This article is a part of a project related to the design of digital control devices with electric drives carried out at the UWM.
