An environmental engineer from hong kong, peng wang, thought of another use for the condensed water.
Solar panel with condensed water.
Solar simulator with adjusted individual halogen lights is used to give the required irradiance.
Decades ago, researchers showed that cooling solar panels with water can provide that benefit.
The solar storage tank is sized to accommodate the number of flat plate collectors you have installed.
During the day, the gel would pull the heat from the panel to evaporate the water it sucked out of the air the night before.
In this paper we build water condensation system based on thermoelectric cooler.
A new device that depends on simple condensation to collect clean water from the atmosphere promises to
The team also thought of another usage for the condensed water;
#california #drought #water #solar drought in california is extremely bad , researchers in california university came with an idea of covering california’s canals with solar panels in order to reduce the evaporation of the water a long with offering clean energy.
Then the water gets pumped directly to a household tap or arefrigerator fill station.
That is of tiny use in arid regions and in creating international locations with little infrastructure.
But those setups require abundant available water and storage tanks, pipes, and pumps.
The solar panel captures sunlight and transforms it into energy, which heats the material inside and creates condensation.
These solar panels use condensed water as the coolant for the solar panels.
By drawing moisture from the humidity in the atmosphere and using sunlight for condensation, these panels can provide enough drinking water in areas where there isn't any.
Engineers at hong kong polytechnic university realized the condensed water could be used as a coolant for solar panels.
Solar powered condenser turns ambient humidity into drinking water.
How zero mass is using solar panels to pull drinkable water directly from the air.
From there, it flows into a storage container.
