I got a battery restorer and it seems to be working but the manual dont say if
i should cycle the battery with the desulfator or keep it at constant charging with the desulfator connected.

I want to switch from electrical engineering to computer sci in my 5th year

; still two semesters till I graduate, and falling grades.

No more "hang in there" and just finish; I still have 2 semesters left, and for me that's two semesters too long. Literally just working on a bunch of outdated software, and learning intangible circuit equations. I have been an intern already at a startup that makes aerial filming drones and I didn't like the electrical bit at all. I was more interested in just building them up than anything that had to do with electrician engineering.

SO WUT DO?

DO PEOPLE ENJOy comp sci at school and work?

>computer scientists
No. Computer Science is like a Math degree, people get it for fun, but it is SHIT SHIT SHIT for work. Computer scientists usually end up getting certifications or find some training in some database or network language, and go work on managing some network for an organization.

There's probably something else like Computer Engineering or something you could get into which would still overlap at least somewhat with the electronics.

College work also tends to be esoteric compared to what you end up doing in the real world. They mostly use degrees so they can claim some sense of responsibility. An Electrical Engineer could go into wiring up buildings (related to civil but they focus far more on structure itself), designing systems for cars or other vehicles, managing things on the component level, and not the intrahardware or programming designs.

Something more microcomputer+electronics would ABSOLUTELY be more fruitful, as "the internet of things" meme will catch on, and you'll get to be right in the middle of the boom that will come from digitizing everything.

Switch to something like "physical technology". You learn how to design, and put together all these ideas in your head with a focus on making a complete product.
  • you already know a good part physics so its gonna be "easy"

LED strips are pretty damn consistent 12V driven. Unfortunately the resistors drop the efficiency like crazy. There is likely per LED, and literally mine are 3 separate LEDs, so there isn't even a 3Vresistor+3Vserial LED(75% efficient), it is (9R+3LED)x3, 25% efficiency.

There might be a way around it, like maybe some brands have all-on or all-off that are more efficient. If you want better efficiency, you can look into LED squares+heatsinks. Those fuckers reach the same brightness/panel as 60-75W incandescent bulbs. Most LED bulbs are half that.

Also, be careful the power draw, a 1-2A may not cut it. If you're going crazy with LEDs, you could get a 24V 4A universal laptop power supply for < $20, which is pretty damn adjustable (12-24) and cheap. Now you can get a lot of good efficiency 12-24V power supplies, but they used to be outrageously expensive.

Ok , I need some serious help. I have a very large flat roof and I have the legal right to use Solar Panels. I would like to set up enough panels to run my business and my homes electical needs. I have about 15 thousand dollars to go into this. I would like be pretty much completely off the grid. I use about 3-4kw constantly and it adds up very fast through the electic company.I just got a 500$ bill . Could someone please explain to me how to do this properly. I basically need to be able to run 4kw -6kw constantly through the day min and i have 15000sq of space to put panels on money isnt really a problem for this but i dont want to be ripped off by a company so I rather do it by myself . Mainly to run lights, computers and Air conditioning and Heating devices. I want to be self sufficient and I want my dream of running a server hosting company to thrive but power seems to be the biggest problem right now. Pic related seems like a very easy way of setting up solar panels on the type of roof i have.

Seriously, check out Aquion. There batterys cost only a litte more then lead/acid "car batterys", but have at least double the livetime + deep cycle capacity, non toxic and landfill safe but recycleable, and you get more energy back out of them (higher efficency). Also when standing at partial charge they dont crap out like lead/acid do, lower self discharge while maintaining low internal resistance (charge discharge at 5C!). Bonus is they require no balancing like lipo. And no im not affiliated, im a german electrician who has installed solar panels and stuff, i have seen commercial lead/acid energy storage and you would not believe the hassle you have (hydrogen build up, acid) with those, special ventilated and monitored rooms and stuff. I heard about aquion when they started out, and im pleased to see they have built a production line for a completely new product based on scientific progress in a few years. Even if aquion could hold only half of what they claim, these still would be real game changers for stationary energy storage. Not to forget this technology was invented and is produced in the US of A!

I am attempting to design and build a garbage bin grow chamber. What I have worked out, and this is very preliminary, is that I will use one LED light, a cone of aluminum foil from the light that directly focuses light on the growbed at the bottom. I'm drilling one hole, in which I will put a small fan. That is concern number one: how strong of a fan would I need to force the stanky ass kush air from the garbage can to my window, approximately a meter and a half away? Should I maybe install a larger fan on the top?

Concern number two is the hydroponic grow bed. Now I'm rreeaally new to this, truly out of my element, but I think a small waterbed with a pump that just swirls the water around, alongside careful nutrient and ph monitoring should be enough, right? I'd of course have the roots and clay medium in a cup with ample drainage so it can absorb nutrients.

Will post designs later today, when they are complete.

AS FOR WHY THIS ISN'T IN /CROPS/, because it has more to do with general knowledge of craftsmanship than a question directly related to growing.

Pic related, but I believe I can do better than that, with your help.

The end goal is to design the perfect garbage can grow op so that I can distribute it on the internet as an infographic.

My room is about 21 degres, but since the airflow from the growbox is goig directly outside to the -20 Canadian weather, I think I'll need to some some heating in there just from leakage. Space heaters are bullshit, but maybe I could fit a small one into the garbage can?

The garbage can is also one of those giant, 360 liter motherfuckers.

So please, critique away!

Get a small (~1kg) bag of "Regulated set cement" aka "fast set cement". Unlike gypsum or plaster when hard its waterproof. Then get some old Newspaper, crumple it and stuff it in the hole, just enough so it will stop the runny cement from going where gravity wants it. Moisten the edge of the hole for the cement to stick better. Now mix the cement in a small container with a bit of water to get a puddy. Yes it will feel like a lot of cement to a small amount of water. Then quickly dump it in there, have a spatula handy to keep it at bay while runny, it should quickly (5min) start to harden. Instead of a spatula a flat piece of hard plastic could be used, so the only thing you need to buy is cement.

Can I:

>A big ass UPS. Maybe a 750W since they're cheaper. A 2000W is $1,000USD. There are some smaller ones for $150. All in all it's cheaper to do a UPS as opposed to inverter + batteries.
>Also I can get more batteries and add in series to the UPS. I've done it before on a smaller one.

I've already rigged up an idea to move the panels if need be at different times of the day on my roof. Pivot it on the apex of my roof. also I have fucked with Arduino and servos and I know I could easily rig/program something up with a timer or photosensor.

Is this reasonable to power a Window A/C unit or something? I know I can't power my house or anything, but What could I reasonably expect to do with such a setup and is it reasonable?

OP here

Right now I have 4 of these wired in series and connected to a shitty old single battery, dual plug UPS. Just testing the waters. It runs a full sized fan on medium setting for a few hours without dying. I don't want to leave it overnight because I don't know whether these batteries die permanently if drained 100% or if my ghetto contraption will burn my house down.

Also there is noticeable noise/hum coming from the unity so I think the quality of AC power isn't great. Probably needs a power conditioner. I won't dare plug a computer or anything needing a stable and consistent 60hz in yet.

>>6481

Shit I didn't think of this. I was trying to avoid a power inverter by going the UPS route but this is probably right. I'm pretty sure if I got ahold of a decent schematic I could etch a pcb up but I don't have test equipment other than my Fluke Digital Multimeter if it was required.


>>6480

Instead of all that fancy stuff I could go analog too. Put the panel on a hinge on the apex of my root. One rope to pull it to the east-facing side for sunrise, one to pull it to the west facing.
I literally have 3000ft of "550 cord" so the possibilities are endless for that. I'll check those batteries out. I just know I need the kind where if I run it 100% dead it won't kill the battery altogether.

The UPS is made for 1 battery 12v ?
you runt x5 = ~60volt

I doubt it will survive for long with that arrangement

If you connect the batteries in parallel you get juice from all the batteries AND the 12 volt in the UPS was built for.

just a quick thought.

you could use water potential to save your energy. especially since you could easily scale your capacity. also no stupid amounts of clusterfuck battery work. just water.

of course you would loose a lot of energy due to friction and efficiency of your pump/generastor set up.

but it would reduce the probability to kill yourself. which seems pretty high to me after reading this thread.

To charge batteries you should look into a pulsed constant-current power supply. The pulse frequency can be set to a voltage level, so that way with low incoming volts you charge slowly, but at higher ones you charge faster. To control all of this requires a fair amount of calculations and integrated circuits to be efficient, but it's infinitely better than trying to do it a simpler way.

I'm currently going for Industrial Engineering, but it's literally more of a management position. I may go for a Bachelors in Manufacturing Engineering instead, go for maybe a Electronic's Master, then go for a DoE in Physics.

The Industrial Engineering program I'm going for also has a variant so in +3 years I could go for IE+Management Bachelors, instead of just the +2 for IE.

I love working with machines but I'll probably do electronics and programming on the side.

Alright since you've been so patient, the radius is roughly 93.06280143852685029519

You have to use a little trig, do some algebraic substitution, and you have to complete a square somewhere. If you don't know where to start, try to picture a second right triangle formed by a line from the center of the circle to the top right corner of the box, and use a variable (y) to represent the height from the center of the circle to the bottom horizontal line.

Right. I would just use .22 LR rimfire rounds (Preferably blanks) because they're the smallest, cheapest, most available ammo out there. I know the Metal Storm military system uses electric charge to deliver the ignition to the round at the front of the barrel, because it can't hand the charge off to anything else. (It's at the end of the line). But if a piezoelectric igniter for a barbecue lighter delivers enough amperage, that works too. I'm just trying to calculate the threshold for primer ignition and see if I can match that value with a reasonable number of, say, AA batteries in series/parallel.

Right now I am trying to figure why he'd need that mechanism O_O

Hey my thread is alive again!

I wanted to put a gun into a super small space, like an altoid tin or a zippo lighter.
Thought it would be cool to have a zippo gun. I know people do it, but with piezoelectric ignition, it could be SUPER compact.

That would be cool. Have you got any plans drawn up to see if it would work?

I found this that looks pretty cool: http://www.everydaynodaysoff.com/2010/11/27/zippo-lighter-gun/

Yep I'm pretty sure that's where I first got the idea.
I don't have any formal plans at the moment, I just made it a goal of building a system that could safely fire .22 rounds before getting fancy about it. After studying the extensiveness of mechanical/physics knowledge necessary to casually construct things like this, I don't think I will be able to put it together until I have some serious free time. Plus, I'm back in school now, so I gotta focus on finishing my Biology major before I can go and do all the other projects.
