Since the beginning of time, people have been fascinated by the sun. It’s essential used is for farming, drying clothes and agriculture efforts to grow crops and sustain population. However, have we developed the ability to harness the sun’s awesome power . We made a solar panel that will produce energy. We know that our country is often experiencing floods and landslide, so that the power cannot be easily runs out. So we developed solar panel to help Filipino’s that didn’t have enough money to pay the electric bills or buy generator. In the use of solar panel, we can light our lamp, switch on the television and also to charge our smart phones, so that we can communicate to our family and relatives. The significance of…show more content…
Concentrated solar power systems ( Unified Solar) use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaics convert light into an electric current using the photovoltaic effect. [1] The International Energy Agency projected in 2014 that under its "high renewables" scenario, by 2050, solar photovoltaics and concentrated solar power would contribute about 16 and 11 percent, respectively, of the worldwide electricity consumption , and solar would be the world's largest source of electricity. Most solar installations would be in China and India .Photovoltaics were initially solely used as a source of electricity for small and medium- sized applications, from the calculator powered by a single solar cell to remote homes powered by an off-grid rooftop PV system. As the cost of solar electricity has fallen, the number of grid-connected solar PV systems has grown into the millions and utility-scale solar power stations with hundreds of megawatts are being built. Solar PV is rapidly becoming an inexpensive, low-carbon technology to harness renewable energy from the…show more content…
[2] It is a form of photoelectric cell, defined as a device whose electrical characteristics, such as current, voltage, or resistance, vary when exposed to light. Solar cells are the building blocks of photovoltaic modules, otherwise known as solar panels . Solar cells are described as being photovoltaic irrespective of whether the source is sunlight or an artificial light. They are used as a photodetector (for example infrared detectors ), detecting light or other electromagnetic radiation near the visible range, or measuring light intensity. The operation of a photovoltaic (PV) cell requires 3 basic attributes: The absorption of light, generating either electron -hole pairs or excitons . The separation of charge carriers of opposite types. The separate extraction of those carriers to an external
