Solar cells are common examples in this category of electricity generation. They are also known as photovoltaic cells. A combination of individual PV cells forms the Photovoltaic module. A collection of photovoltaic modules, which are tied together with a wire and are so designed to install it in a field readily, is known as photovoltaic panels or simply solar panels. The installation includes the photovoltaic modules, an inverter, a battery all linked to each other with a wire. Since this technology is still new in Malaysia especially in UMP. The using of solar as electric source is limited. So, in this case, I need to develop a system that uses solar panel as a basic supply for the Fluorescent Lamp. This project is mainly concerned in design a charger that uses solar as source to charge the battery 12 V. This project also designs the inverter from 12VDC to 240VAC. The inverter could be supply power to the load that we use in this project. The load is a Fluorescent Lamp. This project will be divided into two main parts which are hardware design and software development. The hardware includes the charger and the inverter. The charger will take the energy from the solar source and store it in battery. After that the battery will give supply to the inverter circuit to convert the direct current into alternating current. The most important thing in this project is to convert direct current DC into alternating current AC. By using suitable controller, it will change from square wave into sine wave. The controller can produce the waveform that we need. Lastly when we get the suitable power, voltage and current, we connect it to the Fluorescent Lamp as a load in this project.
