This project is designed to charge up battery from solar energy. It is build with DC booster circuit that rises up voltage. It features an efficiency of 60% and greater with input current limit protection. It is easy to interface with solar panels circuitry.
The solar panel contains photovoltaic cell that converts the solar radiation into direct current electricity. The TL497 device is a 500mA peak step up, step down, inverting switching voltage regulator that is used as DC-to-DC converter. The capacitors are used for voltage stability. The potentiometer or variable resistor controls the output voltage.
The project is ideal for self sufficient project design application.
