Battery Charger from Solar Energy or from an AC Source

Brad Arnold
Advisor: Dr. R. Jetton

With pollution becoming more of a problem every day, a need has arisen for better pollution control devices. One such device is an electric automobile which would replace today's combustion engine powered vehicles. The major drawback in the electric car today is the battery system. The batteries do not provide a long enough mileage range and take too long to re-charge. Therefore, I have designed a system which will charge a battery off solar energy or from an AC source depending on which is available. This is the first step in the design of a system which will eventually be used in an electric car.
