Designing energy autonomous electrotextile systems with solar cells
Get inspired to create sun-powered textiles!
offers guidelines for designing industrially scalable energy-autonomous
e-textile applications powered by solar cells. It summarizes the
findings, learnings and best practices from the Sun-powered textiles
project (Aalto University 2019–2021) in concept creation, product design
prototyping and industrialization of textile-integrated solar cells.
book provides concrete advice for solar cell selection, integration
methods with textiles as well as instructions to measure and calculate
the required solar cell areas for different applications.Sun-powered textiles
is a must-read for everyone interested in learning about designing and manufacturing energy-autonomous e-textiles.
