Solar Cell Construction & Working Principle

Solar cell is a device or a structure that converts the solar energy i.e. the energy obtained from the sun, directly into the electrical energy. The basic principle behind the function of solar cell is based on photovoltaic effect. Solar cell is also termed as photo galvanic cell. The electricity supplied by the solar cell is… Read More »

photovoltaic effect & photoelectric effect – how solar panels work

This page explains how solar panels work, actually we shall understand what is photovoltaic effect that causes the light to convert in to the electricity or energy. In fact photovoltaic effect also called photoelectric effect is the effect that causes the production of solar electricity using the specific semiconductor materials. Before looking in depth the process of solar energy… Read More »
