This post outlines the latest trends in solar cells. As we know that with the passage of time, the world is moving towards solar energy as fossil fuels are becoming rare. Solar energy harvesting from solar cells is a very cheap way of producing electricity. Due to underlined benefits of
What is a solar tracker? A solar tracker is a device that aligns the solar energy harvesting devices perpendicularly to the sun. These solar energy harvesting devices can be anything that extracts solar energy, but we will only discuss the solar panels and how solar tracker systems work for them.
What is a solar tree? A solar tree is a vertical structure (usually a pillar), made to support solar panels to collect solar energy and deliver electrical energy. The arrangement of solar panels on this pillar resembles the leaves of trees, and that is why this type of structure is
What are Bypass diodes in solar panels? The bypass diodes were discussed briefly in the design of the solar panel, but their complete functionality was left for later. Bypass diodes are actually employed in solar panels to reduce the adverse effects of shading. Bypass diodes are high-power diodes (to withstand
From solar cells to solar panels Solar panels (photovoltaic panels-PV) are a combination of multiple solar cells. Solar cells generate voltage and current and typically these values are too small for the solar cell to be employed for power generation alone. Therefore, in order to increase these values, a number
