HOW DOES SOLAR ENERGY WORK?
Solar Energy is a method of direct conversion of sunlight into electricity.
The heart of a Solar Energy is the solar cell. The incident sunlight, i.e. electromagnetic radiation, on the solar cell initiates a physical response whereby the solar cells generate a direct current. In general, a solar panel is made up of 60 solar cells that are electrically connected together in the panel and safely protected by a tough glass panel and a frame. Several panels together make up a powerful and efficient solar system. The electrical current produced at the terminals of the solar panels flows through the connected cable to the inverter, where it is converted to alternating current so that it can be used by electrical equipment.
ACQUISITION OF BASIC SOLAR ELEMENTS
Discovered as primary ingredient in beach sand, silicon is the most common source to produce solar module. Giant blocks of silicon are formed as ingots. After boiling at over 2,000 ℉, the silicon ingots will be sliced to wafers at the size of less than 200 microns thick.
EMPLOYMENT OF CUTTING-EDGE PHOTOVOLTAIC TECHNOLOGY
After injection of phosphorus at high temperature, silicon wafers would become able to converts sunlight into electricity. By cleaning of the phosphorus off the rear surface and around the edges of the wafer, the basic solar device called solar cells are born. String of 60 or 72 solar cells with other components like glass, frame, backsheet, and junction box will be fully assembled as one solar module.
COMBINATION OF COMPATIBLE ELECTRIC COMPONENTS
A number of solar modules combined with inverters, mounting systems and other system components will become a solar plant in which unlimited solar energy would be converted to electricity without any emissions or noise.
