Installation of a photovoltaic (PV) or solar energy system can be a complex and expensive process so getting it right every step of the way is important. Arguably one of the most important parts of this process is the solar site analysis. This undertaking in turn consists of several important elements that must be taken into consideration if the PV installation is going to be done correctly. The end result should be that your solar arrays are able to get maximum exposure throughout the year.

MAXIMUM SOLAR RADIATION

Insulation is the term used to describe solar radiation striking a surface. Atmospheric conditions, the earths tilt and distance from the sun decide how much solar radiation is received at a particular place and time. As far as atmospheric conditions are concerned, air molecules, dust and even carbon dioxide affect insulation. During summer in the northern hemisphere the earths solar radiation reaches it’s peak because those latitudes are tilted towards the sun. As a rule solar modules in the northern hemisphere should face south for optimal collection. In solar site analysis azimuth refers to the sun’s apparent location east or west of true south and magnetic declination refers to the deviation of magnetic south from true south. A good understanding of those two terms is important because solar collectors will receive highest insulation if facing true south. Basically you’ll have to determine the area’s magnetic declination to determine true south which might be available from a local map or surveyor.

DATA COLLECTION

When planning a solar array installation one of the first things you’ll need to determine is the design month, which is the month with the lowest insulation. Of course this is assuming power consumption is more or less constant throughout the year. If not the case then the design month becomes the month with the highest average daily power use. In systems tied to an electric grid this isn’t as important because your utility can pick up the slack but when dealing with off the grid systems it becomes imperative in order to keep the battery charged. You can usually get your local insulation data from local meteorological stations, the internet or colleges in the area, if not available you can estimate using data from surrounding cities.

COMPLETING YOUR ANALYSIS

Once you have your site data and a good idea of where your arrays will be facing you can finish up the site analysis and decide on placement. Shade of course is going to be a negative for your PV system and even a small amount will have adverse effects so finding a spot free of shade is really important. Trees, buildings, poles and other structures can cause shading. The optimum time for solar collection is 9AM to 3PM and you’ll want to keep your arrays shade free during this time period at the minimum. During winter it can be a bigger problem because the sun is low in the sky resulting in longer shadows. December 21st should be used to test for the worst shading in northern hemispheres. Besides long term observation which is often times not practical or possible another way of determining a site for obstacles would be a sun chart. These can help you figure out the suns position at any time during the year and determine if shading will be a problem.

Of course there are many commercially available solar site analysis devices with solar charts built in such as the Solar Pathfinder, which you can get more information on below. These simplify the process and remove any guesswork although a good understanding of siting concepts will help.

Exterior lighting might not sound as necessary as interior lighting, but in fact, it is very much needed. When we think of light and lighting fixtures, most of us would immediately think of those found inside the house, whether they are lamps used for reading or fluorescent bulbs to light up the living room.

I guess this is because lights are always associated with necessity, and when we think of activities necessary to be done, they are always those that happen inside the house. What many neglect to think about, however, is that while most activities that need illumination happen inside, the first step towards getting in is through outside. Thus, choosing for lights outside is equally important as choosing for what to put inside.

As we could already gather from their names, interior lights are all light fixtures we use and install inside our homes. In contrast, exterior lights are those fixtures that we put inside. Let us explore the latter.

You might wonder how important is the installation of lights outside our home? When anyway, it is not like you would spend much time outside enough for them to be of any use? The most important function of outside lights is that they provide for your safety. Take for instance if your house is on a lot that requires you to walk some distance towards it even after you have entered the gate. If this is the case, you probably have a pathway for it.

If you come home late at night, you would not want to stumble around and fumble with wherever the entrance is because you could not see things clearly. Besides, the darkness is hardly something you can boast of to your visitors. Thus, you need lights that can light the pathway and even overhead, on the entrance. The latter assures you that you would be able to fit in your key through the doorknob without any unnecessary delay caused by darkness.

Another function of these outer lights is for security. When someone, say, knocks at you front door at night or rings the doorbell, you cannot immediately ascertain the persons identity if you have not seen who he or she is yet. If you do not have lights, you would not see the persons face clearly. Thus, proper illumination is needed and good outdoor lighting provides this.

We have talked about outdoor lights in terms of illuminating the entryways of your homes, but there are many types of these lights. There are even garden lights. If you have a garden, it would be shame if you only allow view of it during the day. Garden lights make sure that your flowers are still visible for the appreciation of passers-by at night.

There are truly many types of outdoor lights, and all of them have a specific function. They are not those borne out of luxury, for in fact, they perpetuate towards better safety and security for your home. If interior lights help you with your activities at home, outdoor lights certainly make sure you are safe and secure as you do this.

Even though we usually fail to put much importance in them, exterior lighting is certainly one significant aspect for the home.

Do you wish to learn how to capture free electricity for the purpose of running your home? If you have not explored this possibility, then you really are missing out on a lot of cost savings. In fact, it is now possible for anyone to be able to make their own free electrical power by simply building a few devices. In this article, I will talk more about the most feasible solution you can use to start generating free electric from home.

1. How to Capture Free Electricity Using Solar Panel Systems?

Fitting solar systems is one great and affordable way to start making your own free electrical power. They are very easy to understand and install. Some important factors that need to be considered are the locations where you should place the panels so that they can receive the most sunlight. By doing this, you can ensure that the panels are optimally placed to create the most electrical energy.

2. How Do You Store the Electrical Energy Created?

You will want to setup a batteries system so that you can store the electricity created. A charge controller must be setup to allow the flow of electricity to charge the batteries and the panels are then connected to the batteries using wires. You can also build a monitoring system that can track the progress of battery charging but this is an optional step.

3. What Are the Benefits of Running your Home with Free Solar Generated Electricity?

Luckily, these systems do not create any pollutants and noise and are overall very easy to construct. The main benefit is that it can produce electricity for free that results in huge cost savings for its owner.

Electrical things not working? You can test hundreds of electrical things in your home from appliances to batteries. It’s really quite easy.

Electrical devices convert electricity into another form of energy. Included are large and small appliances, computers, telephones, lighting, and lots more. Electrical things convert electrical energy into movement, heat, cold, light, sound, images, and many other useful services.

All you need to test electrical household things is a low-cost continuity tester or a multimeter available at hardware stores. You can buy a continuity tester for less than $ 5.00. A multimeter (under $ 20) measures the amount of power (voltage) being applied, electricity (current) being used, and how much resistance it needs to overcome to do the job. Power is measured in volts (V), current is counted in amperes or amps (A), and resistance is calculated in ohms (O).

There’s one more electrical term you’ve probably heard. Defining it will come in handy as you fix electrical devices. A watt is the amount of power consumed by an electrical device when it is running. A 750-watt toaster, for example, uses 750W (watts) of power when toasting your wheat, rye, sourdough, or other bread in the morning.

Continuity Tester

Electricity needs a continuous path or circuit in order to flow. It’s like a two-lane road from point A to point B and back. If one or both lanes are blocked, traffic – in this case, electricity – stops. A continuity tester is useful for checking cords and wires to make sure they can conduct electricity.

To use a continuity tester, follow these steps:

1. Disconnect the cord from the power source (electrical receptacle).

2. Make sure any switches on the device are on.

3. Place the continuity tester’s clip on one prong of the cord.

4. Touch the tip of the continuity tester to the other prong. If there is continuity, the tester will light up. If not, it won’t.

Here’s what happens: The continuity tester sends electricity from an internal battery through one cord prong and down the wires. If the light gets electrical current from the other prong it lights up, meaning that the path is good. Otherwise, something is stopping it. Remove the cord from the appliance and test each of the two wires separately to see which one doesn’t work. If both work, the short is in the appliance itself.

Multimeter

A multimeter (also called a volt-ohmmeter or VOM) is another way of testing continuity. Use it to measure the amount of alternating current (AC or household current) or direct current (DC or battery current) in a plugged-in or live circuit. It can check voltage, too. For example, a multimeter can verify that there are about 120 volts in an AC circuit or that a 9-volt battery is fully charged. In addition, a multimeter can check resistance. A continuity tester checks resistance, but answers yes or no. A multimeter checks resistance and reports how many ohms (the measurement of resistance) a circuit carries.

You can use a multimeter to test motors, switches, controllers, and many other electrical gadgets. Refer to the multimeter’s instruction sheet for specifics.

Here’s how to use a multimeter to test an electric appliance:

1. Disconnect the cord from the power source, except when testing a live circuit.

2. Plug the test leads in to the multimeter.

3. Select the function (ACV, DVC, resistance) and the range (maximum reading expected).

4. Connect the probes to the cord or appliance component.

5. Interpret the reading. Refer to the product manual for tips on what may be wrong and what you can do about it. In addition, there are numerous resources online.

Don’t let a simple electrical problem keep you from using the power of electricity. A couple of simple electrical tests can help you in fixing household things that break – instead of tossing them.

Next chance that you get at visiting this place, do not forget to spare out some precious time to have a look at the special museums and historic structures. The kind of beauty that this city takes up when it the historic monuments get lit up is just inexplicable. To shorten it, it is truly a treat for anybody to watch.

You could single out any and every monument and building here and you shall see that each one of them brims with architectural glory and brilliance. Even the stupendous construction adds to the scintillating beauty of these medieval buildings.

But to enjoy them in their sheer beauty, you only have the daytime. If one wants to capture this beauty in the dark, then there should be some neat light works. And as expected, these light works may not be something that can be easily chanced upon.

The pretty floodlights that are being used more often these days are symbolic of the beauty that these monuments house. These lights really uplift the entire appearance of the monument.

The extraordinary effects provided by the beauty of very simple light takes the appearance of even an ordinary building much higher. In fact, the placing and positioning of lights also plays an important role in this.

Electric works carry this special knack about them- Even their simple lighting can make any and every building stand out and make it look really cool.

You just cant afford to miss the neon small bulbs that adorn the edges of every monument here at night. It just looks so magnificent! And when you see something like this, you cant help wondering- Who did such amazing stuff?

Time to give a standing ovation to the brilliant lot of electricians. With such amazing talent being stored in them, it is just a matter of time before they start shining on the global platform. The kind of beauty they have placed in bare and simple architectures is totally appreciable. And with some more attention crossing their path, I am sure their talent will venture into providing more intricate and beautiful light works. And these already beautiful city works will get more and more attractive with passage of time.

Last week when I happened to see the amazing light works and artistic creations over the bend of my city’s Downtown, I was truly amazed. The amount of growth and progress that the electricians acumen has exhibited over the city works in some recent months is totally worth heaps of praise.

Just after that, I happened to read about the interesting innovation that has been marking cable lights of late. These guys are planning mobile lights that create marvelous light illusions. The one that creates optical blue sea waves on light fields on the top of a building gives the feel of a gigantic seabed.

Nowadays, you can also take a free hand when it comes to experimenting with electric equipment like light bulbs, lamps and chandeliers. You can experiment vastly with new shapes, sizes and designs, as also with some technological features.

In fact if you look at the quantum of variety that electric equipment boast of today, you ll really be surprised out of your wits. Such is their standard that they have worked towards.

The good part about this is that now many households are divulging that they keep their home electric works on greatly priority. Its no more an additional expense for them. In fact, they pay more attention to it.

With an increase in the number of product offerings, the electricians are also looking at widening their customer base. They have also started to light up premier Hotels and functions to add that extra spark.

Not just this, these electricians can really earn handsomely if they start taking up contracts for lighting up hotels and other buildings. Having a great range of lighting products will also expand their target audience. Now, they’ll be available for different customer classes, as per their pockets.

Well at this stage it is most prudently advised to step back and see where the enthusiastic drive ends up taking the talented bunch of electricians. If these guys want to scale newer heights, they should not let go of their ambition and hard work. And this pattern only suggests that they’re headed upwards.

Putting a ceiling fan up is a great home improvement project that nearly anyone can accomplish over a weekend. It makes your home more comfortable, and adds to the resale value if you choose to move later on.

Before getting into a ceiling fan installation, however, there are a number of things you should consider. These considerations range from electrical safety to aesthetics to logistics, even to budget.

First, measure the room. For a typical room of about 12 by 10, most of the commercially available ceiling fans should work. (these, confusingly enough, are measured by the span of the entire blade assembly, not the length of a blade). When in doubt, go for larger spans.

Second, make sure that where you’re going to mount the fan has a clear air flow to the rest of the room, and that the height of the fan is at least seven feet off the ground, and eight is better if you have high ceilings.

Third, choose a fan that matches your decor. While this is fairly obvious, it’s one of those things that gets overlooked a lot; in particular, remember that your ceiling fan is going to be at the same level as most overhead lighting. This means that any significant differences in contrast with the ceiling will be noticeable.

Now, having bought the fan and made sure it worked with your room, comes the assembly process. You should be able to plug the ceiling fan into the same wiring runs that power your overhead light; it’s worth it to take the time to find those runs, make sure that they extend to where you want the fan mounted and then turn off the breaker. Then, double check that you turned off the right breaker.

The first step, once this is done, is to set the mounting pipe into your ceiling and run the wires through it and connect them up. Then, screw the motor unit for the fan onto the pipe, and seal up the case. Before putting on the blades, turn the breaker on and try turning the motor on; you should see it running. If you don’t, turn the breaker off, and double check; the likely candidate is having mis-wired the ground wire.

Once you’ve got the fan working, it’s time to put the blades in. You’ll want to mount them to the brackets and tighten them in carefully; make sure you have them counter-weighted properly, especially on fans with an odd number of blades.

Check the breaker again, and turn them on; you’ll want to keep an eye on the fan for a bit; you’re looking for signs of an unbalanced load, which will be a vibration or shimmy in the blades. Turn the fan off when you find it, and selectively loosen and tighten screws until the shimmy or wobble goes away.

If your fan has a light fixture (most do), it’s time to make sure that it is wired in correctly if its wiring is distinct from the fan motor itself. Consider getting 6500 Kelvin compact fluorescent bulbs for it; they provide something very close to natural full spectrum light and are energy misers.

Let’s face it, we live in a world where do-it-yourself is an increasingly attractive option. Everything from scanning your own merchandise at the store to performing your own major home improvement tasks is within reach. In the case of home automation, something that just a few years ago was relegated to the super-rich and required a minimum of five figures to get started is now available to the average homeowner with a screwdriver.

Getting started in home automation requires a few steps, but luckily the hardest part is just deciding on what you want! With items available to meet almost every desire imaginable, it’s easy to get caught up in the perfect vision of your home without knowing where to start. These simple steps will help guide you as you move towards the house of your dreams:

1. Write down your plan.
The vision you have now will help guide your decisions as you go, and it’s easy to get sidetracked so having a clear vision of what you want to refer to is a big help.

2. Start simple.
Every castle starts at the foundation and home automation is no exception. Begin with a base system and learn the basic functionality first, then leverage your new found knowledge into expanding your modules and devices.

3. Get help.
Every home automation project will have snags, and trying to overcome them yourself is like cutting your own hair – you can do it, but the end result won’t be pretty. Others out there have probably dealt with the same issue, do a search and see what you find then ask for help on relevant websites. You’ll be surprised how strong the home automation community is.

It may sound like this is oversimplifying things, but it’s really not. Today’s home automation solutions don’t require complicated circuit diagrams and organizational schematics, just some common sense and a desire to live more automatically.

Many people think that being an electrician is a dangerous job. Well in fact being an electrician is second only to being a crew member on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. Just kidding, but it is one of those jobs that have an inherent danger. There is a danger just by the nature of the work. Any time you are working with a potential of thousands of volts of electricity flowing through your body, your job is considered dangerous. However there are safety practices that every good licensed electrician follows and these safety procedures daily keep electricians safe.

OSHA and New Jersey electrician laws actually help electricians to start safe and end safe. There are basic “recommended work practices” that bring a measure of safety to any job site. Procedures and guidelines that have been established from much experience and concentrated expertness are designed with safety in mind. There is safety when guidelines and standards are followed. Many problems occur when we stray from what we know to do. Newbies generally follow guidelines to the letter because the have a respect for Electricity. Once a person feels that they are a veteran electrician, this can become a problem if a person starts taking short cuts.

Do not work in unsafe conditions. Do not let a supervisor’s or employer’s intimidations cause you to work in an environment that is clearly unsafe. You are too valuable. If something tragic happens to you, then that paycheck is not going to mean anything. So, before any work is done on a job, make sure that the environment is safe and that the tools are correct for the job at hand and that they are well maintained. Remember, do not take short cuts.

How do you avoid electrical shock? You avoid electrical shock through prevention, prevention, prevention. Prevention is a key that will save your life. Have a respect for the voltage and thoroughly learning the principles of electricity will keep you safe. The apprenticeship practice as an NJ Electrician in training is a safety precaution and opportunity to truly learn the trade. That is your time to ask questions and to rely on the experience of your mentor. Always ensure that you do not take any chances or short cuts. It may seem quicker to take a short cut but in the end it could cost you time, health and money.

Take the time to ensure that your environment is safe and that you are taking every precaution by following guidelines and procedures and check your tools to see if the are in good working order.
