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?

Winding up the wiring!!!

Here is my improved sun-tracker system mounted on Acrylic sheet and soon be enclosed in a panel box. It contains one 20x4 LCD for displaying different parameters of the sun-tracking system. I also added two Knobs for setting the sensitivity of the sensor and sampling time adjustment.

The East and West limit switches are the safety features of this sun-tracker. At 23:59 Hrs the solar panel is programmed to move toward East and stopped by the East limit switch. This will ensure that the solar panel start generating electricity as it receive the first ray of light and start tracking the sun till sunset.
