Solar and wind exists everywhere on the planet, and in some places with considerable energy density. This portable power generator is useful for emergency case such as when travelling, camping, power your construction site or keep your home running during a power outage. The project prototype should be small in the size, easy to transport and also can produce power from direct sunlight to solar panels. Solar power was chosen as the main source of renewable energy for the portable power generator. The system is consists of solar panel, battery, solar charger controller and inverter to running the system. A solar panel, PV module converts sunlight into electricity. PV module is connected to a 12V/18AH battery for storage of excess power and inverter converted DC load to AC load. Meanwhile, to prolong the operational life of battery, a solar charge controller will be employed to regulate the charging current flowing to the battery from the PV module and limits the battery to its fully charged voltage. In additional, when is not enough sunlight, the role of the PV module will be taken over by the battery until such time when the solar irradiance increase again and allowing the PV module to charge and supply the power to the end users. From analysis is the charging hours versus power output in volts which is shown the percentage of battery. The longer the charging process, the higher the power output of the battery. The charging process also depends on the sunlight, when at peak hours, the charging process will be faster.
