View Full Version : Custom Solar Engine

12-28-2009, 11:24 PM
I am working on a robot which has to drive barely on power by a solar panel. I have many circuits which charge capacitor while running motor or discharge only in dark etc.
(!) But what I need is a circuit which first Charges the Capacitor (a super capacitor in this case) n when the cap. is fully charged the power from the solar panel gets diverted to the motor.Untill then the robot must stand still ie motor recieves no power. The cap. must discharge only when the robot is in dark.
I am using :
~Solar panel 6v - 300mA ( 150 sqcm)
~Supercapacitor .1 F
~motor D/V 4.4 to 5.5
