    Author(s): Flavien Bintunimana*

    The present project discusses the design and implementation of automotive charging system by alternation of solar panel and alternator in KIGALI-RWANDA. The project aim is to design the system which will prevent the problem of jump starting the vehicle especially ones with automatic transmission which is has the problem of not allowing the push starting. Furthermore, apart from the charging system, this solar panel will continue to supply all vehicle electrical systems even if the battery of the vehicle is not present. This system serves as a clean source of energy and will not damage the environment since it uses renewable energy. For that purpose, the researcher used various methods and techniques of research such as documentation, primary and secondary data collection. This system is composed of different components such as: Alternator and solar panel as the source of electrical en.. Read More»
