Abstract

The solar powered transport offers potential advantages to replace the usage of fossil fuel transportation by the communities. It can reduce the dependency on the non-renewable energy such as petroleum, coal and diesel that will depletes soon. Solar power is type of renewable energy that will not last forever even if we keep using it day by day. It is derived from the sun radiation and can be collected and converted into electricity by the solar module such as crystalline and thin film type based on photovoltaic effect. The goal of this project is to design a model of solar powered bicycle for sustainable local commute in order to reduce the usage of fossil fuel. The design of the bicycle has been using PVGIS software and manually .The bicycle basically consist of 60 Watt Thin Film solar panel that directly connected to the 2 of 12 Volt of deep cycle lead acid battery with capacity of 13Ah each via the solar charge controller (SCC). The 250 Watt brushless DC motor is mounted on the bicycle and controlled by using motor controller and throttle. The performance of this solar bicycle analyzed in terms of its feasibility and economic aspects.
