How would I make a 4700u cap charge faster if the solar cell in parallel has a max output of 4.5V and a very low power?? Answered
I'm still working with my fled solar engine. I have a solar panel that can output a maximum of 4.5Vdc.. The solar panel is connected in parallel with the 4700u cap.. The motor only requires al least 3Vdc to function. I used 2 solar cells (1.5Vdc max and 3Vdc max) connected in series as my solar panel/power supply.. I thought that this might work since I only needed a 3Vdc solar panel to charge my capacitor, but it does'nt. I tested my solar panel and connected it in parallel with the capacitor and i measured the stored voltage using a multimeter. The capacitor only stored 0.7V (and this was when my solar panel were at its max!!)..
It seems that the solar panel has a very little power output.. What should I do?? How could I make the 4700u cap charge faster??
