Solar cells are devices that can light from the sun directly into an electrical energy. Solar cells are also called the media to maximize the potential of energy derived from sunlight. Although used in generating electricity, the energy of the sun can also be maximized heat through solar thermal energy. Solar cells are often used by various companies to generate electrical energy.
When getting sun exposure in general of the solar cell can produce a dc voltage of 0.5 to 1 volt, and also short-circuit currents. Large voltages and currents are not enough untu various applications. So that in general a number of solar cells arranged in series to form a solar module. In general, solar modules consist of 28 to 36 and the total solar cell can produce a dc voltage of 12 Volts in standard light conditions. The solar modules can be combined in series and parallel manner to increase the voltage and current on the corresponding output power is required in certain applications. Then how the workings of the solar cells that can harness solar energy into electrical energy? Consider the review below!
HOW SOLAR CELLS
Conventional solar cells work by using the principle that such junction pn junction between p-type semiconductor and n-type. Semiconductors comes from bonding atoms have electrons as a constituent base. Each semiconductor has its own advantages such as n-type semiconductors that have excess electrons negative charge, whereas for p-type semiconductor has excess positive charge holes. Read more
