Solar battery Panasonic races in the world of electric cars, Cell phones
Panasonic will provide the participants run on electric cars in the competition World Solar Challenge devices for the generation and storage of solar energy Panasonic Corporation announced the sponsorship team Tokai University (Japan), which will defend the world title in the competition World Solar Challenge 2011 (WSC) is one of the world's largest racing car, equipped with solar panels. Panasonic will provide the team with University solar cells Panasonic HIT-*, which are distinguished by the highest in the world** the energy conversion efficiency, as well as lithium-ion batteries with higher capacity. In the competition of solar cars, which have been conducted since 1987, involved many teams from around the world. Racers must overcome 3021 km on the roads of Central Australia and to get from Darwin, situated in the North to Adelaide in the South. Team Tokai University, won the last race in 2009 on cancelable with Li-ion batteries Panasonic, this year is going to fight for the title of two-time champion WSC in the race, which will take place from 16 to 23 October. Solar cells Panasonic HIT is a plate made of single crystalline silicon surrounded by ultra fine layer of amorphous silicon. Having a high performance generation and energy conversion per unit area, and superior performance, these items are ideal for installation on the roofs of houses, and for use in electric vehicles. Battery Panasonic consist of a cylindrical Li-ion cells high capacity and are characterized by low weight and durability. Since the rules of the race WSC limit the weight and size of batteries placed in somnambule, high capacity and low weight elements Panasonic attract many riders. This year, Panasonic will provide lithium-ion rechargeable battery high-capacity five other teams: the Technological University of Delft and the University of Twente (the Netherlands), Stanford and California University (USA) and also Technological University, Nanyang (Singapore). Providing effective solutions for the processing of solar energy into electrical energy, Panasonic maintains the enthusiasm of the students participating, not afraid of the complexity of the route and the harsh conditions of santaroga. Notes: * HIT - Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin-layer (heterojunction with internal thin layer). ** Among the mass-produced household solar generators, based on the research of Panasonic (as of March 2011)..
