3 moving objects powered by solar energy stored in supercaps.

How to make continuously running machines on solar power?

My experiments cover ultra low power pulse motors or pendulums, on solar energy with supercap storage.
Sometimes weeks of cloudy sky must be bridged. Daylight has to supply enough energy from the small solar panel. A big supercap has to bridge the ‘dark times’.

I made more prototypes of pulse motors. The electronic circuit I use is simple and reliable.
Working in the very low power field requires a specific approach in mechanics, electronics and measurement. The rotor needs to be light and has to run on very low friction bearings. The circuit has to deal with a very low current and has to be perfect adjusted.
