    hi..
    i need a circuit based on
    Design /technolagy/application of solar energy or other types of renewable energy technologies

    any help would be certainly appreciated...

    Do you have any ideas or even a form of renewable energy you want to look into?

    well..the project should be cost effective and am required to stress upon solar energy...

    I dont think cost-effective and solar can be used in the same sentence. ;)

    well..
    then it should be the one related to tapping solar energy only...
    well cost is not an issue as am not required to submit any hardware...

    Do you have any idea what you want the power to do?

    Run a car? House? Street light? Calculator? Flashlight?

    I suppose you think that someone is going to post a circuit that you can turn in as a homework assignment and get credit for it?

    It doesn't work like that.

    You would learn nothing, except how to talk someone else into doing your work for you.

    You need to do some research into how to harness solar energy in various ways - and then chose an approach that seems feasible.

    Then you design a circuit to implement the concept, and test it.

    well..
    i just believed that someone can suggest few links from where i can study various projects for the better understanding of how to proceed with my project...

    It doesen't require much electronics but the most cost effective / benefit to be gained from solar is solar water heating. If I wasn't in a flat that would be the first thing I'd do.

    you should start with a google search - come back with an idea and schematic and then people will help you.

    this is not a homework service.

    it is a place to get advice and tips if you are stuck
