Am working on a project which uses Solar panel to power the project. I have a 12v 5w Solar panel to use for this purpose. And am thinking to remove the battery from this project since I feel that application of this project is not very critical and it's enough for me to work only when the sun is bright and shining.
Apart from the above what are the practical problems that I can face when attempting to power a project directly eliminating battery. Here is the circuit I intend to power it using Solar panel directly Also I was wondering whether underpowering these kind of chips from panel in non optimal conditions might damage the circuit and it's components. Is it a right concern? How can I identify a particular chip is susceptible to get damaged by doing this?
So far I have made an estimation that my circuit will consume 300ma. Any advice or suggestions please?
