Ideal for teaching in secondary schools or for demonstrating solar energy, wind energy and hydrogen/fuel cell technology. Includes clearly arranged materials in a storage case with baseboards, connecting cables and everything needed to allow a wide range of basic and easy to understand experiments to be carried out.

Full, easily understandable instructions, solutions and Teacher’s notes are included to allow quick assembly. Experiments can be broken down into steps to help with teaching.

Solar Trainer Profi

This PV-Trainingsystem is ideally suited for training in schools, training centres, and universities in the fields of electrical and system engineering , construction, mode of operation, connecting and installation of PV-plants.
It can be used both for demonstration as part of lessons and courses as well as for use in practical training.

The system consists of individual plug-in units each with components for different experimental configurations. These plug-in units are placed in a racking and connected according to requirements using plug-in connectors.
Experiments are possible indoors using a PV module on a stand together with a dimmable spotlight which can be moved horizontally & vertically to enable daily curves to be easily simulated.
In addition angle of inclination can be varied and the influence of irradiation and temperature on the characteristic curve of a PVmodule can be investigated.

Experiments

The basic principles of photovoltaics considering the influence of different parameters can be investigated together with the set-up of both battery/off-grid and grid connected systems:

  • Characteristic curve of a solar module (I/U) and (U/P), MPP
  • Characteristic curve of a solar module (I/U) depending on irradiation
  • Characteristic curve of a solar module (I/U) depending on temperature
  • Power output of a solar module depending on the angle of incidence of the light
  • Simulation: Power output of a solar modul depending on the position of the sun (morning to evening / winter- and summertime)
  • Series connection of solar modules
  • Parallel connection of solar modules
  • Series connection of solar modules and shadowing without bypass-diode
  • Series connection of solar modules and shadowing with bypass-diode
  • Line powered operation mode: sol r energy is fed via inverter (changes solar DC into sinusodial AC, singlephase) to the mains.
  • Different constellations of power flowing in the system. Calculation of efficiency (inverter)
  • Stand alone systems DC and AC. Solar charging controler, battery, stand-alone inverter, DC and AC loads. Varying power flows in the system

Solar Fuel Cell Kits

These make a perfect introduction to fuel cell technology and the solar hydrogen cycle - the energy storage system of the future. Solar PV cells create electricity to power an electrolyzer to create hydrogen and oxygen. These gases are recombined in a fuel cell to generate electricity to drive a motor and fan.

Solar Fuel Cell Model
This complete solar hydrogen system consists of solar module, PEM electrolyser, hydrogen and oxygen storage containers, PEM fuel cell and fan, conveniently assembled on a base plate. Instruction manual as well as overheads and suggestions for classroom instruction and experiments are included.

Solar Fuel Cell System
Complete fuel cell technology system in a carrying case. Lets you explore the world of fuel cell and solar hydrogen technology through a series of straightforward experiments. Contains: Solar fuel cell model; decade resistor; 2 Multimeters; cables; adaptors; stopwatch.
