Always have electricity, especially when you're on the go. This is made possible in a car with a solar system, some of which are already available from the factory (solar roof, etc.) as equipment with a solar module. A car or a van can be equipped with a solar module just like a motor home. The size of the system can differ greatly depending on the car model. The size of the system, more precisely from a solar panel, is also important in other ways. Namely for the amount of electricity that can and should be generated by the solar module. Here, of course, it depends on the extent to which the electricity is needed at all.
So you can attach a solar module
Since the performance of a solar module can be very different, you should take a close look at the models and compare them. Appropriate help can be found on the Internet. Once you have found a suitable system, you have to assemble it. For this purpose, there are corresponding installation frames that facilitate the installation of a solar module. A solar module can be attached to the car with a suitable installation frame, such as on the car roof. So you have the solar module with you permanently. But even if you have a solar module, you still don't have the power you want. You have to make use of the electricity that is generated by the solar module. This is done using a so-called DC converter, Ultimately, this ensures that in the end you also have enough electricity that can be used.
Voltage converter during the conversion
The voltage converter must of course be installed accordingly in the car. Depending on the distance to the solar module, appropriate cables are necessary for this. Of course, there is also the possibility of storing the energy gained in a battery. And ultimately, you also have to lay at least one line and a socket with which you can use the electricity obtained on the desired device. You can decide for yourself how to do this in your car. Basically, you have to be careful with a solar module. Be it that there is no risk of fire, but there is also a risk of electric shock. Accordingly, you have to be careful when installing and laying cables.
don't expect too much electricity
And of course you shouldn't have too high hopes for the yield. If you take the optional solar roof of a VW Phaeton or the technically identical Touareg as an example, it quickly becomes clear what a solar panel in the format of a sunroof can do. Under optimal conditions, the system just manages to operate the interior ventilation minimally to shovel fresh air into the vehicle. From our own experience, we can say that the performance is so low that you can actually do without it at any time. A portable solar panel for the vehicle is therefore often only of interest when camping, for example if you want to charge small devices such as a cell phone. And the prerequisite is always direct sunlight on the panel. If the sun is covered, the module hardly delivers any power and is often not worth the money.
We hope that you the info report on the topic / term solar module (further names / keywords: island system, photovoltaic system, solar roof, solar panel, solar cell) from the field of autotuning. Our goal is that the largest German-language tuning dictionary (Tuning Wikipedia) and to explain tuning terms from A to Z easily and understandably. Almost every day we expand this lexicon and how far we are, you can HERE see. Soon the next one will be Tuning scene concept be illuminated by us. By the way, you will be informed about new topics if you have ours Feed subscribe to.
