Photovoltaic

Initial Concept

When the sun delivers energy to the earth by means of electromagnetic radiation, this Photovoltaic (PV) effect is the process by which several PV cells made from silicon converts sunlight into electricity.

Voltage Types

Initial Concept

In electrical terms, electrical power is the rate of flow of electrical energy in a unit time. Electrical power can be also classified as AC Power or DC Power. Alternating Current (AC) as pure sign wave is usually generated by the utility grid for our homes electric consumptions and the energy generated by the solar panels or batteries is Direct Current (DC).

Solar Cells

Initial Concept

Modern solar cells comes in different colors, shapes and sizes. The most popular cell “Mono” has a uniform darker blue or black color and marked with cutting edges. It is made from slicing one pure silicon cell while the “Poly or Multi” cell has different light colors, resembling a camouflage of melting different silicones together as one cell. The mono cell is more efficient and last longer than the poly with space efficiency from 13-15%.

Panel Construction

Initial Concept

Solar panels are carefully constructed in the factory to protect the cells with glass and lamination to let the sunrays in and to keep out moisture and dirt away from the silicon cells.
