Abstract: Acid rains, greenhouse effect, smog and depletion of ozone layer arc some of the factors, which lead to the air pollution in big cities all over in the world. One of ways to reduce the air pollution in big cities is the introduction of electro or hybrid cars. The present work deals with a photovoltaic charge station, which could be installed on a garage roof with the dimensions about three meters by six meters in order to charge the battery of an electro car. The present work consists of two parts. First part deals with the theoretical design of the charge station, which has been started during a research stay of the author* in Germany. The second part is an experimental work, completed at Izmir Institute of Technology as a MS-Thesis. The present work bases on the original idea of the author, used in a previous work for the field of heliostats of the Solar Thermal Power Plant in the University Ege. The idea is to create a fix mirror area, which should acts as if it were a sun-tracking array. The theoretical design work and the results of the experiments have shown that the idea is applicable also to photovoltaic fields.
