Abstract

AC Solar Generator works on a very simple principle. It consists of standard solar cells arranged in circular pattern mounted on a base. Half of the cells are wired in one circuit and half in another circuit. Mounted above the solar cells is a spinning disc powered by a DC electric motor. The DC motor gets its power from four small DC solar cells mounted in the corners of the base. The disc has portals cut into it allowing light to pass through to every other solar cell below it. As the disc spins each of the banks of solar cells is alternately exposed to light and alternately produce power. When the portal is half way between the two cells the voltage cancels and drops to zero. The resulting voltage is sinusoidal or AC. Thus there is no need of conversion equipment’s such as inverters, phase synchronizers, etc. This makes the overall concept quite simple yet effective and economical as well as compared to the current trend of extracting the solar energy in the market.
