overview of Solar Panel
Solar Panels covert sunlight into Electricity. The key element involved in photovoltaic energy is something referred to as solar radiation, which initiates force behind the system’s operation. There are three kinds of solar radiation. The first is Direct Radiation. The sun’s rays follow a direct path to the solar panels and there is diffuse radiation. This kind is of radiation is indirect because it is scattered by clouds and molecules in the atmosphere as it travels through them. The third and last type is reflected radiation. This refers to sunlight that has been reflected off of an obstacle such as water or snow before striking the solar panels.
Types Of Solar Panels :
01. Monocrystalline Solar Panels
Monocrystalline solar panels are the oldest type of solar panel and the most developed. These monocrystalline solar panels are made from about 40 of the monocrystalline solar cells. These solar cells are made from pure silicon.
02. Polycrystalline Solar Panels
Polycrystalline solar panels are a newer development, but they are rising quickly in popularity and efficiency. Just like monocrystalline solar panels, polycrystalline cells are made from silicon. But polycrystalline cells are made from fragments of the silicon crystal melted together.
03. Thin Solar Films
Thin-film solar panels are an extremely new development in the solar panel industry. The most distinguishing feature of thin-film panels is that they aren’t always made from silicon. They can be made from a variety of materials, including cadmium telluride (CdTe), amorphous silicon (a-Si), and Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS). These solar cells are created by placing the main material between thin sheets of conductive material with a layer of glass on top for protection.
Advantanges & Benefits of Solar Panels
01. No Pollution
Solar panels generates solar energy which is completely clean, it produces no air pollution, no water pollution, and no greenhouse gas effects.
It also reduces the need for finite resources.
