This Project is an attempt for improving the communication in rural areas by developing an off-grid portable cellphone backup charger which uses various forms of renewable energy.
The various forms of energy used in this project are solar, wind and heat due to their availability and cleanliness. With the advancements in power, now it is able to harvest energy from sources which are impossible to harvest using traditional energy conversion methods. In this project, a proposed converter for the cell-phone charger was designed, constructed, and then tested. Results show the functionality of the proposed converter to charge Cell-phones. Further improvement of design will also be described.
