Solar energy for the car ventilation
As early as ten years ago, the first generation of Audi Allroad A6 has also used the solar roof, and the function is only to the blower power. After the top, Hao Rui Benz W211 E240, the TOYOTA Prius is also equipped with a solar roof, and a function is used to give the car ventilation. The purpose is to solve the problem of high temperature in the car for a long time. The basic principle is also very simple, is to use solar panels of solar power generator to power supply, rather than let the air conditioning compressor running. So, even if the car won't start, can also achieve the purpose of adjusting the temperature.
That is to say, the solar roof was originally only used as part of the ventilation system in the car. Because the power of the solar panels, it can only be used to give the car ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration are not realistic.
Solar energy for new energy vehicles
Of course, the use of solar panel roof panel charging to new energy vehicles also have examples of the original BYD dual-mode hybrid F3DM was equipped with a solar panel area relative to the Prius and more superb. It is said that the cost of this configuration is twenty thousand. But relative to the high cost, BYD F3DM solar roof theory only to the battery pack only a day to charge only the amount of 3-5%. This is obviously an utterly inadequate measure.
Tesla will switch to solar roof
The sale of Tesla Model 3 models may be using the new technology of the solar car roof. This car roof solar technology is likely to be a new development of embedded solar power batteries Tesla glass ", its function is to collect solar energy to generate electricity, power supply for some electronic components in the vehicle.
This "Tesla glass" technology, is likely to be a foldable design, for example, it can be made into foldable hardtop convertible models, so in terms of price, compared to solar panels generally have a lot more expensive.
Solar roof, more symbolic significance
Before the chief engineer of the Prius Toyoshima said, install solar panels, can improve the fuel efficiency of 10%. But this figure is in direct sunlight, not cloudy, not in the case of fog and haze collection. And for the growth of our city in the haze of the actual effect of the use of solar energy, we can imagine.
Although, we do not know the actual effect of the solar energy used by the use of the solar energy. However, in the past, due to the high cost and low production capacity, solar panels are usually only appear in the high allocation of vehicles, but not gradually popularized. So there are environmental feelings of the configuration, to a large extent, is only to enhance the brand image and the existence of a sense of automotive technology. Solar energy benefits of this technology, is widely known to us, but the solar backup generator technology in automotive applications, subject to limit the development of basic science, it has not brought significant benefits.TAG: Deployment Fixed SMA Tesvolt Unlimited Volt Army Sonnen Multi-Storage Reliability Shell Manganese 200MW Ørsted Micro
