Intuitive Application for Solar Panel Electrical Power

Peace be upon you.

Every time we turn on a light, fan we create pollution due to the burning of fossil fuels required to produce that electricity. In 2008, total UK CO2 emissions were 533 million tonnes. 27% of those emissions came from the electricity usage in our homes. It’s clear our homes have a critical role to play in mitigating the effects of climate change. A lovely solar power installation, with its promise of an abundant and clean electricity supply, can save 1,800Kg of C02.

Solar panels can mean big bucks. Photovoltaic panels generate electricity from the sun, and not only do they cut down on your energy bills, you can get paid for generating energy too.

I feel delighted to share with you a highly intuitive application, powered by Google Code; that determines Optimum Solar Panel Tilt angle/Slope (β for all Latitudes/Regions, and shows comparison of generated Power for different monthsregions, as well as for different panel Tilts(β)

Intuitive Application for Solar Panel Electrical Power 

The application takes into consideration the Input provided by user
i.e. Total surface Area of Solar used ( sq m or sq feet), and EFFICIENCY of Solar Panel (0-100%)(Eta)

Here Efficiency = Electrical energy (Eo) generated by Solar Panel for every 100 units of Solar Energy (Ei) recieved by it.

Application doesn't take into consideration environmental factors like shading, Cloudiness or rainy season.

Above figure shows two important concepts Tilt angle(β) and Orientation angle.
This application takes into consideration of Optimized Tilt angle(β) while keeping 
Orientation angle as zero. This means Solar panel bottom surface is assumed to be aligned along East-West direction always.

Notice the Figure 1 on Top of this page. it clearly shows how :-
  1. Single-axis(E-W axis) tracking system rotates along North-South.
  2. Single-axis(N-S axis parallel to Panel surface) tracking system rotates along East-West.
Below figure shows a Sloped roof in higher Latitudes.  For sloped roofs in North Latitudes, the roof facing South would be an ideal candidate for Installing Panels, thereby maximising Power Input to Panel.

As per below figure, which shows Solar declination in relativistic sense.:-

  1. For receiving max Solar radiation in Mar, Sep when Solar declination=0, the Solar roof should be (Latitude angle from the horizontal), so as to make Angle of incidence Zero on Panel surface.
  2. For receiving max Solar radiation in June when Solar declination=+23.5, the Solar roof should be (Latitude angle - 23.5 from the horizontal).
  3. For receiving max Solar radiation in Dec when Solar declination=-23.5, the Solar roof should be (Latitude angle + 23.5 from the horizontal).

The flyer below is an instruction manual for understanding color codes used in application and other informative details.

Key findings from the Solar data calculated from this  application :-
  1. Single-axis(E-W axis) tracking system (North-South rotation). produces (~18%) more output power (for Latitudes<50) when compared with a stationary Panel system with Optimized Tilt(β)For Latitudes>50, % gain is 25-50%.
  2. Single-axis(N-S axis parallel to Panel surface) tracking system (East-West rotation), produces (~60%more output power when compared with a stationary Panel system while considering both are @ Optimized Tilt(β) (towards N or S).

    Conceptual reason behind above 2 findings, is
    that  Sun's incidence angle (θ varies 0 to 90deg ( Panel's N-S rotation) 
    while for Panel's E-W  rotation θ varies 0 to max (Latitude - Tilt(β)). Instantaneous Energy on a panel is Ec * cos (θ(t)) which is higher if θ is close to zero and acute which is true for East-West rotating Panel.
  3. The gain of output power from dual-axis tracking system is  (~66%) when compared with a stationary Panel system inclined at Optimized Tilt(β).
  4. The use of the dual-axis tracking system produces negligible ~5% gain of power output, compared with a single-axis(N-S axis) tracking system (East West Rotation), which is a good learning from economical point of view.
  5. At higher latitudes ( Alaska, Norway exceeding 60º N or S), use of dual-axis or single-axis(E-W or N-S rotating)tracking system becomes more economical considering 2-3 times energy produced as compared with a stationary Panel system with Optimized Tilt(β).

    Conceptual reason behind this finding is because in the month of May,June, July, it becomes a 24 hour day and a solar tracker(East-West rotating) continuously faces Sun ( in the N as well as S), maximizing the monthly Power input.
  6. For fixed Panels at lower latitudes ( tropical regions upto 30° N/S), Optimized Panel Tilt(β) is in range of {Latitude-3, Latitude}. 

Calculations method details

The calculations are based upon derivation of formula using concept of relativity (relative velocity and rotation), after years of analysis and knowledge of engineering concepts.  Mathematically, for a particular Tilt(β) of Panel, 
the solar energy at any instant of time is determined by Ec * cos (Incidence angle (t) and it is Integrated  against the total Solar duration on that day. This  is carried out for the entire days in a month and then summed to get Monthly and Yearly
Electrical Power Output. For some of the special Orientations like Single axis Trackers, complex  methods are used using Taylor series or graphical area integration  Σ( E(t) * deltaT)

Based upon considerable testing against available data and real life data, the calculations are expected to be 99% accurate. Based upon feedback or errors reported by readers, the application will accordingly get corrected and updated

Some Solar definitions

Collector Slope, β: This is the angle between the plane of the solar collector and the horizontal. If a panel is lying flat, then it is 0º. As you tip it up, this angle increases. It does not matter which direction the panel faces.

Declination, δ: This is the angle between the line that points to the sun from the equator and the line that points straight out from the equator (at solar noon). North is positive and south is negative. This anglevaries from 23.45 to -23.45 throughout the year, which is related to why we have seasons.

Latitude, φ: This is the angle between a line that points from the center of the Earth to a location on theEarth’s surface and a line that points from the center of the Earth to the equator. This can be easily found on a map.

Zenith Angle, θz: This is the angle between the line that points to the sun and the vertical — basically,this is just where the sun is in the sky. At sunrise and sunset this angle is 90º. At noon it's equal to Latitude angle. 

Solar Altitude Angle, αs: This is the angle between the line that points to the sun and the horizontal. It is the complement of the zenith angle. At sunrise and sunset this angle is 0º.

Solar Azimuth Angle, γs: This is the angle between the line that points to the sun and south. Angles to the east are negative. Angles to the west are positive. This angle is 0º at solar noon. It is probably close to -90º at sunrise and 90º at sunset, depending on the season. This angle is only measured in the horizontal plane; in other words, it neglects the height of the sun.

Angle of Incidence, θ: This is the angle between the line that points to the sun and the angle that points straight out of a PV panel (also called the line that is normal to the surface of the panel). This is the most important angle. Solar panels are most efficient when pointing at the sun, so engineers want to minimize this angle at all times. To know this angle, you must know all of the angles listed and described next.

Hour Angle, ω: This is based on the sun’s angular displacement, east or west, of the local meridian (the line the local time zone is based on). The earth rotates 15º per hour so at 11am the hour angle is -15º and at 1pm it is 15º. Basically, Hour angle varies from -90º ( sunrise) to 0º (noon) to 90º (sunset)

Surface Azimuth Angle, γ: This is the angle between the line that points straight out of a PV panel and south. It is only measured in the horizontal plane. Again, east is negative and west is positive. If a panel pointed directly south, this angle would be 0º. 

Solar Cell Market
In the solar cell market efficiency is crucial to avoid losing market shares on the global energy marketplace. There are two main ways to make solar cells more efficient, either by improving the actual cell or by installing the solar panels on a tracking base that follows the sun.
The end-user will prefer a tracking solution rather than a fixed ground system because:
·         The efficiency increases by 20-60% (= more money) depending on where you are in the world.
·         The space requirement for a solar park is reduced, and they maintain the same output
·         The payback time of the investment is reduced
Our business proposal is to offer a complete linear actuator system that moves the tracking base in your solar tracking system according to the sun. We catch the sun and increase your output of the solar panel.
There are three main Solar Power Technologies:
·         Photovoltaic (PV)
·         Concentrated Photovoltaic (CPV)
·         Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)


Photovoltaic (PV)

Photovoltaic power generation is done by employing panels composed of a number of cells containing photovoltaic material (often silicon). This photovoltaic material then converts solar radiation into electric current.
While solar tracking is essential for both CPV and CSP to deliver power it is not the case for PV. The reason for choosing tracking on a PV installation instead of just having a fixed installation is an increased energy output during the day. Whether it is feasible to install a tracker is thus dependable on whether the increased energy output (kWh) weights up the additional cost of the tracking system. Return on investment of the tracking part in a solar tracking system is approximately 4-5 years.


Solar Panel Efficiency Most panels are around 11-15% efficient. The efficiency rating measures what percentage of sunlight hitting a panel gets turned into electricity that you can use. The higher the efficiency, the less surface area you’ll need in your solar panels

·         Shade

Basically, shade is the enemy of solar panel efficiency. With poor solar design, even a little shade on one panel can shut down energy production on all of your other panels.

Urgent help requested for Helping the Homeless fighting cold in Muzaffarnagar Camps

Assalamualaikum brothers,

Imagine for a moment, in the chilling winter, if your family & your newborns are without the 
Shelter / A.C., blankets, warm water / Cleanliness / electricity / Toilet / Privacy/ Oven / Food /Clean Water/ medicines. I wish, if each and every recipient of mine contributes to the cause without any excuse and fwd to others , and approach local 
Masjids for fundraising using the flyers and appeals (as stated below).

               There is a serious need for all human beings with a heart, to open their hearts towards the pitiable situation ( as described below) of widows, newborns, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, and contribute given the innumerable means available to us ( in form of contribution of money, blankets, provide immediate services as Doctors or Lawyers).
 As per latest news on ibnlive  ibnlive confirms Zakat India as an NGO working on ground , Zakat India seems to be the verified organization working on ground for the victims in relief camps.
I recently talked to Zakat India representative Sir Imtiaz - +919818624930 working there on ground.
For money transfer, There are 2 main modes available ( India Net Banking  or sending cheque in US) both convenient for Indians and US residents.
Please fwd this blog to other groups and get immense help as much as possible.

Some of the multitude of problems faced by refugees in Camps are listed below:-

Watch these videos from ndtv, ibnlive to understand reality on ground, clearing many misconceptions
created by State Govt paid newspapers.

  • At the camp, 40km from Muzaffarnagar town, men uprooted leaving behind burnt homes, lost livelihoods, face a bleak future, especially those ineligible for the Rs 5-lakh UP government compensation.- Piyal Bhattacharjee
  • Life is cheap at the riot victims' camp here. In the past weeks, 11 children have died here; 74 pregnant women, 24 in advanced stages, battle malnutritionand skin disease; children amble barefoot in the cold, some not even in woollens; 85 girls have been married off as their parents thought it was the best way to save honour.
  • “My child died by a snake bite,” said Akbari, the mother of Saadil who succumbed to the snake bite. Five other infants, namely Fatima (4 years), Firdaus (6 days), Zoya (5 years), Firoz (20 days), Umar (9 days) also died in the same camp.
  • This Dec, Muzaffarnagar recorded a biting 0.6 celsius. The Loi camp, roughly the size of half a football field, is pitched under the open sky next to a canal and sugarcane fields. The tents hardly keep out the chill. When the temperature dips, dewdrops leak through the canvas and fall on people sleeping below. "Cold and hungry, children cry all night," says Hanifa Begum.
  • Armaan,3, wears only a cotton shirt and clings to a puppy for warmth. Most sleep on the floor with a sheet or dry sugarcane leaves for a mattress. "Bonfires provide some respite. But the kids are soon cold and crying again," says Gulfam Saifi, a 29-year-old blacksmith from Kharar village. It isn't just the cold that makes the babies cry. "Many ill-nourished mothers find it hard to breastfeed," says Shahnaz. 
  • It's no place for grown-ups either. Some women say they haven't had a proper bath in weeks due to lack of privacy.
  • As sunlight fades, passageways between tents turn into open kitchens. The aroma of spice mingles with goat shit stink. Kids play with dogs. Men and children huddle around bonfires. "The fire is weak. It isn't easy to cook," Shafiqan complains. Tough rotis, sometimes eaten with pickle, form the staple food.
  • Ayesha's mother shakes one of the three small tins that make up her kitchen, hoping it will have some last few grains of sugar. The daily supply of 300 grams milk stopped over a week ago, so the Tea is always black.  Ayesha is four and her mother, 20, can only make her one glass of tea that must be drunk in small sips to last "as long as possible".
  • Little Ayesha moves through a crowd of children to get as close as possible to another fire. She has no shoes, and the fire is the only comfort for her tiny feet. Children claw at one another, trying to get close to the small pile of burning sticks. spark flies on to Ayesha's right foot. She screams and jumps back. A patch of brown skin has come off, leaving a reddening wound. Her mother rushes out with a dupatta and a bowl of water from the tubewell, her tears flowing. "It's a small burn. By morning it will be fine," says her grandmother.
  • small fire of dried leaves and sticks from sugarcane fields burns outside their tarpaulin tent, the only other comfort they have in the cold nights on the open fields.
  • "My 20 day old son died because he didn't have a blanket to cover him," says Murshida Begum who reached the camp with her husband and 4 children when the army evacuated Bhadal, her village in Muzaffarnagar. "Now two of my daughters have pneumonia and there are no cloths to cover them," she breaks down looking in the direction of the fresh graves of the dead children at the edge of the camp.
  •  For a camp of 3000 people, there are only two toilet blocks, now closed, opened for cameras to capture their appalling, over-clogged reality, most refugees use the surrounding fields. Unsanitary conditions of the camp, which pose a high risk, especially to the young. Dr Samir Zainal Abedin told us that he has seen 10-15 cases for diarrhoea . In a worrying conclusion, he says "a senior medical officer has come and told us that this is a kind of viral diarrhoea and can spread very fast and the main cause is unhygienic surroundings, environment. Mainly flies, water mainly."
  • Everywhere in the camp, there are swampy, garbage infested pits. Not far from them, children sift through the dirt looking for tiny pieces of firewood that will help them stay warm.
  • With a new diarrhoea outbreak looming, the icy cold, which has already claimed lives of the very young, still remains a threat. One of the last visitors to the medical tent was a four-month-old baby, crying in distress. "She has severe chest infection,"

20 Remedies to Treat Diabetes Naturally: One is Black seed

20 Remedies to Treat Diabetes Naturally: One is Black seed
Search for black seed oil on Amazon or Google

(NaturalNews) Kirt Tyson, former type I diabetic was interviewed by Mike Adams. In the interview Kirt Tyson revealed that his diet was completely raw with no fruits. He ate only vegetables, seeds and nuts. He cured his diabetes on this simple 30 day raw diet. The once debilitating disease can now be treated with going on a raw diet and making some life changing decisions. Not only can you go raw, but you can also use these eight natural herbs and remedies to survive diabetes.

There are many remedies available today and some work better than others. Like the raw diet, it all depends on your body and your genetics. No cure works one hundred percent of the time for everyone. A raw diet is only the beginning. Continuing to eat healthy for the rest of your life ensures that you too can be free of this disease returning.

Besides going raw and eliminating sugar out of your life, you must switch to raw milk or its alternatives. In the book, The Devil in the Milk, Dr. Kevin Woodford explains how the type of milk we drink, directly reflects of the high incidence of many diseases, including diabetes and cancers. There are many substitutes available from almond milk to oat milk. They are extremely healthy and easy to make.

Eight Types of Natural Remedies Available Today:
Buy Live Fig Tree
1. Fig Leaves

Fig leaves are best known for treating diabetes, but there are many other uses for the fig leaves. There are many homemade remedies from treating diabetes to treating bronchitis, genital warts, liver cirrhosis, high blood pressure, skin problems and ulcers. Fig leaves are not used as much as they should be. Most of the remedies for the fig leaves use the sap or the milk of the sacred tree. Fig tinctures or poultices should be used immediately and fresh batches made daily.

The big news with the use of fig leaves is that they have anti-diabetic properties. The diabetic needs less insulin when on a treatment of using the fig leaf extract. The diabetic should take the extract with breakfast, first thing in the morning. An additional remedy is to boil the leaves of the fig in some freshly filtered waster and drink this as a tea. Read the whole article on fig leaves and diabetes:

2. Black Seed

Black seed, also known as Nigella Sativa is a cure for all diseases, except death and considered to be a miraculous cure. It has been used for everything from acne to pancreatic cancers and doctors are raving about the results. Read about this remedy that has been used for over 2000 years.

For seven days take 6 teaspoons of the oil. Take the oil three different times of the day. Then take 2 teaspoons in the morning and 2 in the evening for 4 days. Follow by taking 2 teaspoons of the oil for two days. Take plenty of water in the morning and rub the oil all over the body for 10 days. You must mix the oil with fruit juice. Repeat this treatment if you do not see any improvement.

Another remedy for the treatment of diabetes is to take one half cup of the seeds that have been heated and a half cup of water cress seeds (mustard seeds can be substituted) and a 1/4 cup of ground pomegranate peel. Place these all in a blender and pulse well to a fine powder. Add in 1/8 cup of fumitory. Each day take one teaspoon of the ground powder and one teaspoon of the oil, one hour before you eat. Do this for at least one month.

3. Fenugreek - 

Take 5-30 grams with each meal or up to 90 grams once a day. Do not take more than 100 grams as it will cause an upset stomach and make a person nauseated. Fenugreek cannot be taken at the same time as other medicines. You must wait at least one hour and preferably two before taking fenugreek. Diarrhea and gas are common side effects of fenugreek.

Warnings about taking fenugreek: If you notice these side effects stop taking fenugreek right away: difficulty in breathing, tightness in chest, rash, swollen and itchy skin. Also if you are pregnant, consult your physician before taking fenugreek.
4. Cinnamon - दालचीनी

Cinnamon has long been reported as a good source for the treatment of diabetes, due to a study done in 2003 by Khan and associates. 60 people were tested in the group and one third of the group was given a placebo. The end results were very impressive and the overall health of the group was increased with glucose down 18 percent; LDL cholesterol and triglycerides also showed reduced levels. Everyone was excited and the word of using cinnamon spread.

According to Cancer Tutor.com, "At least 1/2 teaspoon a day, which is critical to "soften" the cell membranes. Cinnamon mimics insulin, thus it may lower your need for insulin immediately."

5. Grape seed Extract

Grape seed extract has been proven to improve the conditions associated with this disease. Grape seed performed greatly in studies conducted in 2006 in Toyama Japan, in 2009 in Romania and also in Portsmouth UK. Grape seed was successful in protecting the liver cells and setting up defense mechanisms against reactive oxygen species produced by hyperglycemic conditions.

Grape seed comes in capsules of 50-100mg. It is usually suggested to take 50mg per 50 lbs of weight, not to exceed 300mg per day. Whole grape seeds are the best alternative, which need to be ground and placed in vegetarian capsules. Taking 3 capsules a day is enough. The time of day does not matter.

6. Olive Oil

The Department of Health Sciences of the University of Jaen is researching the correlation between preventing diabetes and the consumption of olive oil. Through research, they have found that an oil rich diet may prevent diabetes. By using olive oil, you can reduce your blood levels including LDL and triglycerides.

By olive oil reducing the cholesterol levels, you can prevent such diseases as cardiovascular, atherosclerosis and diabetes. Prevention of diabetes begins with weight management and proper diet. The Mediterranean diet has been shown beneficial in the treatment of diabetes by using olive oil, which is monounsaturated instead of saturated fats.

Before sleeping drink 1/4 cup of olive oil. If you prefer to use lecithin, mix one tablespoon of lecithin with one tablespoon of olive oil. Keep in mind that one cup of olive oil has 2000 calories. Just because it is healthy does not mean a person can ignore the calorie intake.

To learn how olive oil cures over 60 diseases, read this article:

7. Bitter Melon - (

Researchers have proven that bitter melon works great with the treatment of diabetes. It contains insulin like properties which help in the lowering of the blood and urine levels. It is suggested to be used frequently.

The bitter melon should be juiced and then taken on an empty stomach before eating first thing in the morning. The seeds may be ground to a powder and eaten also. You can also, make a tea from the bitter melon.

8. Vitamin C and Diabetes

Researchers have found that using from 100-600mg of vitamin C daily can cause you to normalize your sugar levels, in as little as one month. Diabetics have a complication of too much sugar, sorbitol, in the body, which eventually leads to eye and nerve damage.
9) Neem
Neem, a tree that is believed to have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal property, has anti-diabetic properties as well. Neem leaf extracts and seeds are used as an active ingredient as an effective cure for diabetes. It has been scientifically proven after a number of tests and research by leading medical institutes, that neem parts have high efficacy in treating the disease. Neem leaf extracts improve the blood circulation by dilating the blood vessels and also helpful in reducing the need for hypo-glycaemic drugs. It has been found to reduce insulin requirements by up to 50%. 

10) Indian Gooseberry - आमला
Amla the common man’s fruit that is rich in vitamin C also has hypoglycemic properties. The fruit when taken orally helps to reduce the sugar level by stimulating insulin production within 30 minutes of consumption. The researchers found that oxidative stress markers reduced by 23% in those who took 250 mg of extract and 28% in group who took 500 mg extract.

11) Jamun
This is a seasonal berry that is not available all through the year. It is a rich source of vitamin A and C, 100 grams of this fruit consumed per day can do wonders to the blood glucose levels. A teaspoon of dried seeds powder is advised to take in early morning first thing in empty stomach, to reduce high blood sugar. in addition, it helps to reduce the insulin dose. 

12) Vinegar
Many may not include vinegar in their regular diet. But this again helps diabetics to reduce the sugar concentration in the blood. Add vinegar to foods that can be palatable with this ingredient. Two spoons of vinegar before food helps in the reduction of glucose influx. 

13) Oysters
Oysters may have no direct effect in reducing the blood glucose level. But, as a rich source of zinc, they help to promote wound healing in diabetics. Thus, it is advisable for diabetics to include oysters in their diet for better wound healing capability. 

14) Papaya
It is recommended to consume papaya on a daily basis as it has natural blood sugar controlling capability that helps to control diabetes by and large. It is also a rich source of vitamin C and anti-oxidants along with carotenes and flavonoids.

Aloe Vera
This is a very common plant grown in most households. It has been widely used for medical and cosmetic properties for centuries. Recent studies prove that it has hypoglycemic characteristics, and can reduce high blood sugar levels. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that promote wound healing. Mix one to two teaspoons of ground bay leaves, one teaspoon of turmeric and one teaspoon of aloe vera gel. Drink this solution daily, before lunch and dinner. Or you can take aloe gel with buttermilk to improve the taste.

16) Mango
The leaves of the mango tree are believed to have anti-diabetic properties. The leaf extracts need to be administered at least 60 minutes before food consumption then only the desired effect can be seen. It helps to reduce the intestinal glucose absorption, which is the reason behind its anti-diabetic effect.

17) Holy Basil
This is a medicinal plant, which is also considered holy by many Indians right from ancient times. It is recommended to extract the juice from the leaves and consume it. A daily habit of eating fresh leaves from the garden after washing has tremendous effects on the body. Basil leaves bring about a significant reduction in the blood glucose level. Apart from that, this leaf also has anti-stress, anti-asthmatic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, gastric anti-ulcer, anti-oxidant, anti-viral, anti-tumor, anti-mutagenic and immuno-stimulant properties.

18) Lady's Finger This most sought out vegetable is rich in soluble fibers. It helps to slow down the absorption of glucose from the intestine. Soak one lady's finger slit in the middle in a glass of water overnight and consume it on an empty stomach. Done over a month, it reduces the blood glucose level to a great extent.

19) Beans
Beans help to slow down the digestion process thereby preventing the rise in blood glucose level. Beans give a feeling of fullness to the stomach and satiety is reached early.

This is a common kitchen staple known to every family and is extensively used in everyday cooking. Everyone is aware of the cholesterol-reducing effect of garlic; few people know about its anti-diabetic effect. The chemical Allicin in garlic is believed to have hypoglycemic effects. Studies have found that garlic might protect against heart disease in the general population as well as help control abnormally high blood sugar levels in diabetics.

Home Made Remedies

It should be noted that there are no case studies about these home remedies, only people testifying to their personal success.

1. Avocado 

Take one avocado seed and grill the seed. Slice the seed into several chunks. Add this to a pot of water and bring to boil, wait till the water turns brown. Strain the water mixture and drink when cool. Expect to see results within two weeks.


Take one apple and cut into chunks. Place the apple in a pan with 4 cups of water and bring to boil and cook until the water is reduced in half. Drink this morning and night. It is expected to show relief within two months.

Diabetes does not have to be a life threatening disease. It is possible and probable with natural remedies to allow the patient to live a normal and healthy life.
