Abstract

Nowadays, renewable energy consumption especially solar energy and the number of vehicles using this kind of energy is increasing. One of the vehicles that can use solar panels to provide sufficient energy for movement is AUV. Autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) is an unmanned underwater vehicle which is utilized to accomplish various missions autonomously. In this article constructing a solar submarine is studied. On the hull of the vehicle solar cells are installed, and then its velocity under the water is calculated. It's believed that the present research could result in an underwater vehicle which is able to move under the water and provide its own required electrical energy using solar cells.
