The fast and simple way to understand
The experiments make it possible through application
and experience-oriented learning to understand the relationship between the sun
as the source of energy and the conversion and subsequent use of this on the basis
The way the solar power case has been designed as a modular
system is a straightforward and entertaining introduction to electrical and solar
engineering. Topping up a battery using the charging regulator, the installation
of a motion sensor as well as the initial measurements of voltage and current provide
the initial successes to be enjoyed besides building simple electrical circuits.
The solar power case can be used by the teacher to present
the theoretical and practical sides of the technology and also by students, individually
and in groups, to learn the basics of photovoltaic applications independently.
A school can plan its own projects using the solar power
case and present these as models for the decision-making processes, for example
as illumination for a solar-powered display case or for lighting for the equipment
room which is independent of the mains, etc. Besides direct use in the classroom,
the solar power case can also be used to inform parents, other pupils and visitors
at open days and project weeks of the possibilities for using photovoltaics.
The solar power case consists of a sturdy, practical
case (in which all the components can be securely stored), a solar module for electricity
generation, modules and wires for making up different solar electricity applications,
and further accessories. A detailed description of the components can be found under
“Scope of supply”.
