Introduction to the Project Report
Non-Conventional Sources of Energy Definition:-
Non-conventional sources of energy are also called Renewable energy. Renewable sources that are continuously replenished by natural processes. For example, solar energy, wind energy, bio-energy- bio-fuels grown sustain ably), hydropower etc., are some of the examples of renewable energy sources.
A renewable energy system converts the energy found in sunlight, wind, falling-water, sea-waves, geothermal heat, or biomass into a form, we can use such as heat or electricity.
Most of the renewable energy comes either directly or indirectly from sun and wind and can never be exhausted, and therefore they are called renewable.
Analysis of non-conventional sources of energy
Various forms of renewable energy
- Solar energy
- Wind energy
- Bio energy
- Hydro energy
- Geothermal energy
- Wave and tidal energy
Solar Energy :
Energy from the sun is
called solar energy. The Sunís energy comes from nuclear fusion reaction that
takes place deep in the sun. All life on the earth depends on solar energy The
solar energy that falls on India in one minute is enough to supply the energy
needs of our country for one day. Man has made very little use of this enormous
amount of solar energy that reaches the earth.
Solar Energy Applications :
Solar energy applications are
as follows :
- Heating and cooling of residential building.
- Solar water heating.
- Solar drying of agricultural and animal products.
- Salt production by evaporation of seawater.
- Solar cookers.
- Solar engines for water pumping.
- Solar electric power generation.
Merits and limitations of a Solar energy :
Following are the some merits of a solar energy
- No attention is needed during energy production.
- No fuel is required.
- Minimum maintenance cost.
- No pollution.
- No production of harmful chemical.
Limitations of a Solar energy are
- Deepened on the sunshine,
- The menu has to preplanned.
- Cannot produce energy on night or during cloudy days.
- It takes comparatively more time.
