The charging current goes to the lm317t voltage regulator through the diode d1.
Solar panel voltage regulator circuit diagram.
The heatsink is rated at 3.9°c/w, so heatsink temperature rise = 13.2w * 3.9°c/w = 51.5°c.
Circuit diagram [inaritcle_1] circuit operation.
The circuit ensures a very efficient voltage conversions.
A battery is a fragile thing and high voltage of solar panels can easily destroy it.
Nevertheless, it is advisable to mount it on a small heat sink (about 5 k w).
Solar panel output voltage is directly fed into lm317 positive regulator circuit and it is adjusted to give 12 volt output and battery connected to this bias through (3a, 50v) schottky diode.
The circuit presented here uses linear shunt regulation.
The input is given to the shown input points of the ic and the output for the battery received at the output of the ic.
The adjust pin of the lm317 voltage regulator is used to control the output voltage and current.
Transistors t1 and t2 are complementary types i.e.
By adjusting its adjust pin,.
