Solar powered electrical vehicles
A study on a campus-friendly solar-powered electric car is presented in this publication. Solar energy is one of the most important renewable energy sources that could be a viable substitute for fossil fuels. Sun rays emit around 800-1,000 watts of energy per square metre of the earth's surface on a bright sunny day. Why aren't we using solar energy to power our vehicles since it's pure and free? Is a solar-powered vehicle a viable alternative? The word "solar power" refers to the use of the sun's energy to power a gadget or electrical system. A grid of solar cells makes up solar panels. The sun's energy is collected and converted into electrical energy by these cells. Solar vehicles now turn sunlight into electricity, allowing them to harvest energy from the sun. This electricity powers the vehicle's motor by charging the battery. Rather than requiring a battery, some solar cars provide energy directly to an electric motor. Solar vehicles are now classified as a "green vehicle" because they are fueled by renewable energy and emit no carbon dioxide.
