Producing electricity with photovoltaic panels in motion and discharging Li-ion batteries
This work aims to address the problem of producing electricity using photovoltaic panels and storing energy in Li-ion batteries. Even if on board a ship photovoltaic panels cannot represent the main source of electricity, they can reduce the energy consumption from conventional generators and can serve different types of consumers, even a USV (unmanned surface vehicle). The present work deals in the first part with the theoretical principles of electricity production and storage, and in the second part it presents two experiments based on the theory.
