What are solar Panels?

The solar panela which are also called as photovoltaic solar panels works by engrossing sunlight as a source of energy by which they can produce electricity. A photovoltaic module is a set in which around 6 X 10 solar cells are connected together, so that they can work together as a package. Photovoltaic module is assembled in such a way that it’s photovoltaic array of its system helps completely to create and distribute this solar electricity in commercial sector as well as the residential sector.

Solar Panel Modules – A Close Encounter

Each of these modules is analysed by its rate of DC output power which is checked under standard test conditions, and supposed to be ranging between 100 watts to 365 watts. For e.g. The efficiency of this module is depended on the area of a module and the output rate of that particular module, module 8 percent efficient and output is 230 W, then module will be said as twice the area of module efficient, which means it is 16 percent efficient and output is 230 W. now a days there are some commercially available solar modules that do extend the efficiency by 24 percent.

A module which do have a single solar panel, are said to be producing only a set amount of energy. On the other hand multiple solar panel are much more efficient in producing energy that’s the reason why maximum installations do contain multiple modules to make them more effective. The array of photovoltaic module which is used in photovoltaic system such as a battery pack for storage, an inverter, interconnection wiring, and solar tracking mechanism which is not must, it’s optional. The general use of solar panels are in the field of agriculture especially for water heating system.

Theory used in solar panel

Photovoltaic modules use photons which are basically light energy, from sun so that it can convert it into electricity with ofcourse photovoltaic effect. Although maximum modules do use cells which are wafer based and made up of crystalline silicon or thin film cells. The main part of the module which is said to be carrying the maximum load can be any of both the layer whether the op one or the back layer. These cells are said to be technically protected from mechanical damage and moisture. Most of the modules which are used are tend to be the rigid ones, but according to the need those cells are also available which are based on the thin film cells, and are said to be the semi flexible ones. These cells are said to be attached electrically to each other so that they can work properly and effectively. At the back of the solar panel there is one box is attached which is called as the PV junction box.

This is a brief introduction of solar panels, and the method on which they generally work; there are some areas which are totally dependent on the solar panels these days. So, grab a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of these panels before you plan to install them.
