Abstract

India along with the world is facing an ‘Energy Crisis’. There is a significant gap in the demand and supply for electricity. In order to meet this situation, a number of options are being considered with a large focus on renewable energy research & development. Solar energy is the idle solution amongst the plethora of renewable energy sources available. Solar energy can be used to meet the demand for electricity with the help of photovoltaic systems. One of the major constituents of a photovoltaic system is the photovoltaic modules, also called solar panels, which help convert the energy obtained from sunlight into electricity. Photovoltaic System installations across the globe have accelerated dramatically in the past but at the same time are facing the challenges like land scarcity and solar irradiance. The proposed system focuses on increasing the number of solar panels installed to generate electricity within a building without modifying the existing resources. Apart from harvesting solar energy from the panels installed on the roofs, the same can also be done using windows and hence eliminating space scarcity. The proposed system consists of solar panels embedded on window blinds. The system aims to automatically track the sun’s position throughout the day. The position of the solar panels attached to the blinds is adjusted to optimal angles to generate electricity. The obtained energy is then stored in a battery and further converted to alternating current for various applications.
