CHAPTER ONE   INTRODUCTION   1.1       Background of the study

This project is to improve and develop the significance of solar energy in automobile. A method of upgrading the conventional tricycle that uses petroleum as a means of energy to Solar-Powered Electrical tricycle that is powered by an electric motor which gets its supply from photovoltaic (PV) panels. The PV panels must be mounted and installed on the tricycle without compromising riding comfortability. The method employs an electric motor that are easily connected and separated for ease of transport. The solar panel is connected to the charge controller and then connected to the batteries for collecting solar energy and converting it to electrical for recharging. The batteries are now connected to the DC motor for providing electrical power to drive the tricycle.  This project is to improve and develop the significance of solar energy in automobile.

            This project is a combination of technology used typically in automobile industries, solar industries and electrical industries. Therefore, this design of solar powered tricycle have been built for the purpose of solar tricycle only.

1.2       Aim

The aim of this project is to design and construct a solar powered tricycle.

1.3       Project objectives

The objectives of this project are:

To design and construct a solar powered tricycle To develop a tricycle that use renewable energy, enviromentally friendly and cheap.

1.4       Scope of project

The scope of this project is limited to the design and construction of a solar powered tricycle that is powered by an electric motor which gets its power from photo voltaic (PV) panel and uses solar energy and to convert the solar energy to the electrical energy by using solar cells, then converting this electrical energy to mechanical energy by using DC motor to run tricycle.

    Willie Ekereobong, University of Port Harcourt.
  • "WOW, SO IT'S TRUE??!! I can't believe I got this quality work for just 3k...I thought it was scam ooo. I wouldn't mind if it goes for over 5k, its worth it. Thank you!"

    Theressa, Igbinedion University.
  • "I did not see my project topic on your website so I decided to call your customer care number, the attention I got was epic! I got help from the beginning to the end of my project in just 3 days, they even taught me how to defend my project and I got a 'B' at the end. Thank you so much, infact, I owe my graduating well today to you guys...."

    Joseph, Abia state Polytechnic.
  • "My friend told me about ResearchWap website, I doubted her until I saw her receive her full project in less than 15 miniutes, I tried mine too and got it same, right now, am telling everyone in my school about, no one has to suffer any more writing their project. Thank you for making life easy for me and my fellow students... Keep up the good work"

    Christiana, Landmark University .
