Why this Blog?

The purpose of creation of this new blog was to add all my work that will solely related to my DIY Solar and wind electricity generation system. I will also add here the adventure of my DIY micro-hydro turbine (PAT) unit that has been planned to be implemented in the beautiful Kalam valley. In the recent past i unintentionally got attraction toward the green energy and studied a lot about.

My last visit to Karachi home was the turning point to divert all my intentions and resources toward getting into hybrid solar+wind electricity system. The 12 hours shedding at Karachi was really a mental shock to me. The 2Hours alternate load shedding scheme was so pathetic that for three nights i had only 6 hours of sleep in total. The Starting/Stopping the generator (located at the third floor) was a real muscular exercise especially the last part of the night.

The ready made solution requires a handsome amount of money. Here i will post my DIY approach to get the job done considering the advantage of being low cost, worth of experience and as per my requirement and quality. I intend to work on both Solar and wind turbine simultaneously so that to give the relief to my family.

Lets see will i have success in this endeavor?

All in One---

This time no need of too much interconnected module with wiring :).. I have made one and only PCB for complete solar tracking. The optional  20x4 (20 character x 4 rows) LCD with 6 buttons shall help selecting and changing sensitivity, timing etc through a user-friendly Menu driven LCD interface.

The circuit contains embedded DC motor controller. I also added ICSP (In-circuit Serial Programming) interface on the PCB, so now i have no need to remove the IC from the PCB for program uploading ...

Additionally the connections are much simpler now with few spares digital and Analog pins these will be later used for some good purpose...
