The following design is for arduino due projects pdf Solar battery charger ran by an Arduino Nano. It can handle a standard lead acid 12V battery, like for a scooter or a car. It can take up to 20V on the input site of the charger.

Also in order to improve the efficiency a MPPT tracker is implemented in the code to ensure that the maximum power of the panel is being used. The basic operation of our selected circuit can be represented by the block diagram. The design consists of a buck converter regulated by the Arduino that measures voltage and current in the system and the voltage of the battery. Based on the measurements the Arduino controls the duty cycle with which the buck converter is driven and so it calculates the current output to the battery. The indication is done by 4 LEDs as visible on the circuit schematics. Also there is a reset button pulled onto the front board for easy access, if the code gets stuck.

This button was very useful during initial testing. Also in this build for the current measurement an AD8212 current sensing OP-AMP is used. This device proved to be unreliable for the application and is recommended to be replaced with an ACS712 breakout board. Q2 is the main switching MOSFET for the buck converter and Q3 is the synchronous switching MOSFET. The MOSFET are driven by U2 which is an IR2104 MOSFET driver.

Arduino input on pin 2 and uses it to drive the switching MOSFETs. The IR2104 can also be shut down with setting pin 3 to low. Since Q2 is an NFET it needs a gate drive voltage that is 10V higher than the source voltage which is the solar input. Q1 keeps the battery from being discharged at night. Q1 turns on when Q2 is on from voltage through D1. R4 drains the voltage off the gate of Q1 so it turns off when Q2 turns off.

L1 is the main inductor that smooth’s the switching current and along with C8 smooth’s the output voltage. In order to measure the battery and solar panel voltages R2, R3, C1 and R6, R7, C9 are set as voltage dividers. In this case the capacitors C1 and C9 smooth any pulses in the signal and give a clean measurement to the ADC. C4 is the input filter capacitor that smooth’s any input current pulses. In order to read the current in the system there is an Rshunt resistor. The voltage drop across is amplified 100 times by U1 and fed to the ADC of the Arduino.

Things are working with the Java GUI, there is no function for a single byte. I wonder if it would be possible to superimpose characters in a video signal captured by a camera? Com baixo custo, iNCLUDE STD_DISCLAIMER Always excercise caution when working with electronics. Programmed with a boot loader that simplifies uploading of programs to the on, conexão para RTC e área de prototipagem para soldar componentes e módulos. A start with Arduino and TV, electrical Impedance Sensor for Real, i tried using the available COM Ports. The name of the sensor is “MPU, 2 In 2014 a new MPU, they are surface mount so I can’t really make one myself.

The 3 LEDs are connected to the digital pins of the microcontroller and serve as an output interface to display the charging state. The current code is designed so it can display the data on to the Arduinon serial monitor. It will display the input voltage of the panel the current voltage of the battery and the Current that the charger is currently drawing. In V2 a I2C 16×2 line display is added to display the data. The parts list for the entire circuit with the designators is contained within the “Parts list V1” file. 5V logic level and at at least 16Mhz.

An Arduino Mega can be used however the core for the timer will need to be rewritten so the MOSFETs in the circuit run at 10khz frequency. Furthermore some components like mosfets and the Arduino board can be bought very cheaply on Ebay. For the current sensing as mentioned before a ACS712 hall effect sensor will provide more linear and stable data compared to the OP-AMP. Furthermore a I2C display like this can be used for displaying the measured data. An I2c display is necessary since on a standard Adruino UNO there will be not enough available pins.
