I’m a final year student taking the Bachelor Degree of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (TARUC). My Final Year Project (FYP) is a prototype relevant to the Solar Power collection through the different arrangement of the photovoltaic solar panel. This FYP title being chosen is because in modern days everything in our daily life is working on electrical power. But with the increasing of human population and the invention of electronic and electrical devices, we are facing a huge problem in the sustainability of electrical power since now most of the electric are power by non-renewable energy such as petroleum. Hence, renewable energy such as solar power which are sustainable and environment friendly are being taking into consideration. Resultantly, experiments and research on solar power are widely being carried out nowadays. In this Final Year Project, ARDUINO UNO is being used as a Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) solar charge controller which will monitoring the input from the solar panel and protect the rechargeable battery that used as power bank. The solar charge controller built using the ARDUINO UNO will indicate the input from the solar panel, the rechargeable battery charging and discharging condition in the process with the LCD display. As for the Solar Panel arrangement there are 2 type arrangement. The first arrangement is a normal arrangement with 3×3 series parallel arrangement using small photovoltaic solar panel of 5.4×5.4 centimeter. The second arrangement are by using the same 9 pieces of photovoltaic cell and arranged it using Fibonacci sequence according to a tree. Then the two arrangement is compared to determine which arrangement is efficient in collecting sunlight and convert it into solar power to charge the battery.
