Methods of Producing Electricity

How is Electricity Produced?

To discuss about producing electricity, we need to know what it is we are talking about. Matter is anything that has weight and occupy a space. Every matter in the normal state is electrically neutral. That is, they have equal number of positive and negative charges in random distribution. When you apply an energy or a force, charge particles in the matter separates. Negative charges accumulates to one side while positive charges accumulates to the other side. When the charge separates, electricity is produced.

Methods of Producing Electricity

We can produce electricity by any of the following: heat, light and friction. Others are pressure, chemical action, and magnetism.

  • Producing Electricity by Magnet. Production of most of our electrical power is  by electromagnetic induction, as done in large-scale power plants. Be it a coal-burning plant, hydroelectric plant, windmill generator or a nuclear plant. The system uses a spinning turbine with magnets to induce voltage in copper coils of an alternator.

  • Electricity from chemical actions. Second most common method is through certain chemical actions and reactions that produce free electrons. This is what happens in a cell and battery.
  • Electricity from light. The other method to produce electricity is by light. This method uses photovoltaic cells, where sunlight is directly converts into electricity. Electricity from this is known as solar electricity.
  • Electricity by heat. This is not common to produce large-scale electricity. However, it serve useful application for remote needs. A Peltier device (as used for thermoelectric coolers) will produce electricity if it’s two faces are at different temperatures. Essentially, heat energy converts into electricity. Meanwhile, thermocouple employ the same principle to generate electricity from heat.
  • Electricity by pressure. You can convert pressure into electrical energy using simple piezoelectric device.
  • Electricity  by friction.  You can generate static electricity, by rubbing two or more objects to build up friction,

However, electricity from many of the methods are not useful for large-scale applications. For example, electricity from heat, pressure and friction. Nevertheless, they serve useful purposes in instrumentation along with others in transducers, or sensors, transducers is the same as sensor

Examples of transducers converting to electricity include moving coil microphone, quartz microphone and photodiode. Others are light dependent resistor, thermistor, and thermocouple. Further are pressure sensors, capacitive pressure sensors, and yet many others.

How Do Remote Switch On Off Appliances?

How Remote Switch On Off a Circuit?

How remote switch on off? To remote on off a circuit by means of a relay activated by the remote control, the remote control sends out or transmits a radio or infrared signal and there is a receiver which receives the signal sent by the remote. The receiver is inside the small board with relay(s) and it alternates the condition of the relay between open and close to connect or disconnect your circuit. Someone may ask why do I need remote control switch in the home?

  • To remotely control your car amp from a distance
  • To control many appliances like garage doors, lights, cranes from a distance
  • For safety and security purposes
  • To control heavy gadgets

You can use this method to remotely control the on or off functions of many lights at an instant; control the movement of garage doors; and many appliances and equipment you might think off. You can use this in your house or factory. You have a receiver switch on each light or group of lights you want to control. Or a relay in a receiver switch for each equipment or appliance you want to control.Relay are either mechanical or electronic switch. If mechanical, they are switch activated by a coil. They are of different types based on how they configure for example, S P S T or Single Pole Single Throw which is no different from a wall switch except its being activated by a coil when it receives a command.

When you connect the appliance you want to control to the NC contact of your relay, it means the appliance is always ON (or Arm) when the relay has not received a command. Therefore when the relay receives a command or control signal, the device turn OFF (or Disarm). On the other hand, when your gadget connects to power via a NO contact, the device is always in the OFF position until you energize the relay to turn it ON. Watch the video below to see a typical relay switch in action.

Solar Powered Outdoor Lights

Solar Powered Flashlights How It Works?

By Timothy J. Peters | Submitted On May 24, 2010

Solar power lights are rather ingenious inventions that have many uses. Who would have thought you could use the sun to power a light, or a flashlight? Solar powered flashlights are pretty cool little gadgets. They generally look quite similar to a regular flashlight. They have a simple switch that turns them on and off. They have an area on one end that emits light…sufficient to allow to be used at night or in any dark area.

A solar powered flashlight uses sunlight energy, converted into electrical energy in a solar photovoltaic (PV) cell or panel that sits on the outside of the flashlight, that is then stored in a battery. Most solar powered flashlights use LED or Light Emitting Diode lamps rather than an incandescent light bulb, as LED’s take less electrical current to operate, and they last longer. While an incandescent light lasts, on average, for about 1000 hours, an LED lasts for an average of 100,000 hours.

Similarly, solar charged batteries that are used in the solar powered flashlight, as compared to the normal, single use nickel, lithium, or cadmium batteries generally seen in flashlights, usually will not require replacement for about two years with steady use. The comparison rate is about 15 hours for a regular battery, compared to around 2500 hours for a solar rechargeable battery.

To maximize the usage of your solar charged batteries, you should leave the flashlight on for 15+ hours at least once a month to fully expend the charge. Rechargeable batteries have a memory effect. Therefore if you continually use the flashlight without ever fully discharging it, it will eventually only recharge to a lower (memory) level, and never return to 100 percent of its available power.

For best results, keep your solar powered flashlight on a window sill when it is not in use, where the solar panel is exposed to the maximum amount of sunlight. If you’re not using it regularly, be particularly mindful to turn it on…and leave it on…as described above, at least once a month.

You can find solar powered flashlights in most hardware stores today. They’re great for camping and emergency use. Every vehicle and every home should have one. If you wonder why…think about those times that you’ve needed a flashlight in a hurry only to find that the batteries were dead, and you had no spares…or didn’t know where they were!

Some amazingly innovative designs are being created for solar flashlights…with add-ons like siren, flasher, cell phone charger, etc… in addition to the basic flashlight design. There are also any number of solar flashlight key chains are on the market today. The price range varies, depending on the uniqueness of the style, the outside casing, and additional functions.

If you’re interested in “spreading the light” in a very solar way, you may want to visit bogolight.com. The name stands for “Buy One, Give One.” SunNight Solar, the company that operates the BoGoLight Program is a Limited Liability Company founded by Mark Bent in 2006. Having served in the American Diplomatic Corps in a number of developing countries, Mark saw the need for light in many places, and found a way to provide it. When you purchase one solar flashlight at BoGoLight, or through one of its affiliates, such as InHabitat, an identical solar flashlight will be donated to a non-profit who collects and ships the lights to areas of need throughout the world.

What a unique and wonderful way to “shine a little” light…in a very solar way…and light the dark for those who cannot see. Solar powered lights are the wave of the future.
