Research on Photovoltaic Power Generations Installed in Veranda of Apartment Houses

Preserving the developments of economy, science and technology with conquering the problems against environmental conservation is an important assignment for humanity of the world. The usage of the renewable energies is expected to be able to mitigate such problem. The renewable energy including photovoltaic power generations have been accepted and spread widely. Various innovative power conditioning systems have been also studied. In domestic utilization, the actual application of such solar panels is almost installed on top of the roof of the detached house. However, some residents living in the apartment house are having a fairly strong desire to contribute for energy saving due to natural energy generation. The generating power in such case is fairly reduced, so the system construction should be balanced with the reduced power. Thus, it is necessary to improve the construction toward simple one. In this paper, in order to give a reply, simple and concise photovoltaic power generating systems are examined. Considering fairly reduced generation power and narrow space of installation in the apartment houses, the system constructions should be simple and concise. The system construction which gratified their wishes are presented and discussed. These solar panels can be easily connected like usual home appliances having attached plug for connection. For reversed power flows and increasing harmonics, their protecting circuits are installed in the input power line. Simple system circuit and construction will be presented and discussed.
