Researchers Develop New Hybrid Solar Panel That Can Generate Power From Rain Too

The researchers at Soochow University in China, have published a paper on the hybrid device that is able to harness the power of sun and rain using a hybrid panel. By attaching a transparent nanogenerator to a silicon solar cell, researchers have designed a device that harvests solar energy in sunny conditions and the mechanical energy of falling raindrops in rainy conditions. The dual …

Simplify yourself a mechanical design of a device

Success and reliability of a device depends not only on laboratory tests in “ideal conditions” but also on its mechanical construction. Elimination of mutual influence (EMC), optimal space usage, resistance to vibrations, easy assembly at production are one of factors why it´s worth to design mechanical part of a device into details. At production of …
