Book purpose to try to remove ?s from title and
aroused my curiosity.
correct about solar?
5 W monocrystalline panel purchased from Harbor
Freight 5 $40 and several inexpensive multimeters to test Fast
Many low cost or free HF mulitmeters used to monitor
Test results slightly more optimistic that Fast Neutron's
Second panel purchased to experiment with parallel and series
Panel electrical characteristics cause more powerful
panel to power other in parallel configuration.
Third purchased to test
SE, S, SW panel possibly capturing more power without moving single
Panel voltage swings renders panels alone about
useless for practical applications.
Panels went to the garage.
Low cost HQRP charge controller purchased from Amazon for
15 W monocystalline panel purchased
from Harbor Freight for HQRP evaluation. About $50.
HQRP not only
protected 12 V 35 Ah AGM Harbor Freight [About $50] battery from overcharge but
removes solar erratic and intermittent output with battery
Experiments conducted outside covering battery, charge
controller and wiring with a tarp at night.
Wind often destroyed test
HQRP electronics eventually failed.
Three less than $10
solar controller purchased. Two did not charge the 9 V 35 Ah battery
Least expensive $7.41 controller did best of
Low-cost Qiang Sun 30A charge/load controller advertised PWM
charge control purchased from Amazon.
Both HQRP and Qiang Sun have LED
Grape 100 W polycrystalline purchased about
about $100 from Amazon to test charge controller.
IR drops between 2
foot 10 gauge power and return replaced in-line multimeter amp
Current flow in to or out of battery indicated by mV sign
$16.99 Sunix 20A 12V/24V Solar Charge Controller Charge
Regulator Intelligent , 2 USB Port, LCD Display from Amazon to upgrade Qiang
Qiang Sun moved from 100 W grape to 15 W Harbor Freight. Sunix
connected t0 grape.
80, 200, 400 W modified sine wave inverters
purchased from Harbor Freight to test performance.
HiMH and NiCD
charging tests evaluated rechargeable AA/AAA 9V performance compared to
alkaline and Lithium batteries conducted over many years. Some with solar
Several chargers destroyed using modified sine wave inverter
Cell phone Lithium Ion 3.8 battery charging testing followed.
USB and universal charger [battery removed from phone] tests
Two cell phone low battery theories:
1 charge through
usb cable [Tesla strategy],
2 replace low with full battery. Charge away
POWERBANK MINI 4400 mAh purchased from Aamzon to test cell
phone bank charging.
$10 Ativa 5000 mAh and thee $3 2600 mAh purchased
from OD/OM for further battery bank cell phone charge tests.
wave 120W Samlux little over $100 inverter purchased from Amazon to power
Solar/battery powered Windows notebooks project goal.
Windows 10 hp stream 13 celeron purchased from Amazon for $200.
Backup hp stream purchased from Office Depot/Office Max for $129.99.
Amazon stream runs 10/1511 [fall update]. OD/OM stream
Lenovo Ideapad 100 5th generation broadwell purchased from
OD/OM for $350.
Microsoft upgraded Ideapad from 1607
to 1703 [creator update] without asking permission.
Lenovo Flex 5 7th
generation kaby lake purchased from OD/OM for $600 to upgrade wife's Lenovo
g580 core i3 Windows 8 laptop running xp.
Flex 5 updated to 1703 on
Flex , Ideapad, OD/OD stream, as well as desktop 4
generation haswell, AC powered through Kill A Watt power meters.
Windows 10 appears include power-saving upgrades.
Stream 1607 appears more power efficient than 1511.
hubs under speed/power evaluation using Kill A Watt meters and Windows
2200/2400 W Chicago Harbor Freight gas generator purchased in 2011
for home backup.
Not started until 2017 ... thanks to grid
3200/4000 W Preditor Harbor Freight generator purchased for
$289 in 2017 to evaluate new technology and backup Chicago
Both used to power nameplate 10 amp HF Portland blower/vacuum
and Sears shop vac..
New technology Predator powered both blower and
shop vac simultaneous from each of its two 13 Amp banks.
How many solar
panels/batteries to required to power the blower and shop vac for 15 minutes?
Without destroying its deep cycle battteries, of course.
Second part of book.
Harbor Freight 400 Watt inverter
First generator returned to HF under 90 day warranty because
of bent frame. Replacement returned because no electric output after enghine
start. Replacement 3 returned for same reason. Replacement 4
Amazon, Harbor Freight, OD/OM returns policies excellent.
Solar/battery success overcoming
erratic, intermittent, low capacity factor solar panel power output perhaps
best understood by first hand implementation and studying wind turbine/grid
As well as first-hand solar panel/battery
6 roof grid tie solar vendors submitted bids for home system.
Solar City a bidder. One bidder out of business.
Author did not solict
bids, except for one possible.
Bidders ask to submit bids. Author agreed
to study bid.
Conclusion that wind turbine and solar
grid-tie generation of electricity is a scam/fraud reached over at least ten
years study ... looking at data, not listening to or reading msm altenergy
New Mexico, Texas, Indiana field trips to wind and solar
farms, talking to knowledgable people method used.
Excess power disposal
fee revealed in 2016 at the American Wind Power Center in Lubbock TX.
Confirmed at Benton county IN municipal building 10/2016.
Service Company of New Mexico published intermittent and low capacity factor
wind turbine output at the New Mexico
wind power center [136 GE turbines] and red mesa [64 GE turbines] wind farms.
Erratic solar farm power output
Springerville AZ warning.
Confirmed by Public Service Company of New
Mexico's Prosperity solar/battery data.
Method includes attending PNM
Intergrated Resource Planning meetings ... with mouth shut, New Mexico Public
Regulation Commission intervenor, field trips, solar system quotes, asking
questions, solar laboratory measurements ... for a 10 year period.
collected in html formal beginning in 2006.
Solar and wind information collected at New Mexico
Solar Energy Association fiestas held at Menual School, The Academy, and two at
Central New Mexico Community WORKforce Training Center
Electricty production not area of expertise but of
Electronics/software used in wind turbine/solar systems is
area of interest ... and hopefully expertise and
Electronics/software is essential for wind/solar systems. And
is the achilles heel too. Failures/obsolescence/toxic waste
Liberal arts educated appear to have tried to force adoption
wind and solar generation of electricity and destruction of coal.
liberal arts 'educated' controlled the media. Until Internet and social media.
Public Service Company's 2017 Integrated Resource Planning dominated
by engineers replaced environmentalist who, imo, hijacked the 2007
But how to tell this story?
Eric Schlosser's Command and
Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety,
divided book into narrative, notes and references.
Goal is to minimize
words in narrative to focus on how scam/fraud conclusions reached.
Notes verbosity okay.
contents should cause examination of formal opposed to informal education in
our electronics/software world?
