Modifying The Design Of Solar Tube To Produce Cost Effective Dispose Of Sunlight In Multi-Storey Buildings

[Full Text]

Keywords: - Power Consumption, Solar Energy, Electricity, Solar Tubes.



Abstract: - Since the population of world is increasing at a very faster rate, the demand for the basic necessities is also increasing. Such necessities include food, clothing, shelter etc, the main challenge the government is facing is the increasing demand for the power generation for the entire population which is necessary for any country to be called a developed nation. The demand for shelter is being met by the very rapid rate of colonization which if not properly controlled will definitely lead to reduction in net sown area, increased deforestation and various ecological problems. So the trend is to build the multi-storey buildings on a very small piece of land. It has been observed that the buildings in metropolitan city are very close to each other and sometimes they are not properly oriented to the sun. Again the present era construction is being carried out underground such as the ones used in colleges for constructing library, laboratory, and metro stations. So the interior of the building remains in darkness even in the daytime. Thus to create the illumination in the building during the day, a lot of energy (electrical) is wasted. So in this paper an attempt is being made to produce and implement a system that will replace the existing day lighting systems without incurring a huge sum of money. So, a huge amount of electricity is consumed in order to have a visibility within during the daytime. This power consumption is really unnecessary and can be avoided by using the solar energy to produce the electricity to glow the bulbs, tube lights etc. Using solar light directly by making it to travel to inside of a building or a room. This is a very simple and economical concept and is known as solar tubes.
