The design of a 24/7 solar panel using artificial method of producing Infra-Red (IR) has been proposed in this paper. This arrangement ensures that the solar panel can produce energy even during night time. The major disadvantage of a solar panel is that it cannot be used during night time and when the panel is shaded. Our project aims to eliminate these disadvantages of solar panel. In this work, a Light Dependent Resistor (LDR) resistor is used to sense day or night conditions and the analog sensed value is sent to the PIC microcontroller. During night hours, only specified load will be on, so that the battery works without getting discharged fully even in the midnight. The IR Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) that are used in night are placed in inner side of the shutter which is placed on top of the panel. The shutter is opened and closed using a motor which is controlled by using relay. The charge and discharge conditions of the battery are monitored by a Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) module. The efficiency and economic analysis of the system has been presented.
