Summary: Thin film solar cells use much less semi-conductor material than crystalline solar cells.
You might have heard about Thin Film Solar Cells. What indeed are they? Why are they called “thin film”? And what advantages do […]
Summary: IGBT is an an electronic switch. In solar inverters, this switch performs the key functions to convert direct current from the solar cells to an alternating current.
When you talk about inverters to many technical folks in […]
Summary: Polysilicon, a highly refined form of silicon, is the starting material for solar cells.
For silicon-based solar cells, polysilicon is the starting material. What is polysilicon, and how is a silicon cell made from polysilicon?
Polysilicon is […]
Summary: A solar cell is the smallest unit of a solar power system. Many solar cells make a solar panel.
Summary: Conventional solar PV cell efficiency are in the range 10-22%, and module efficiency in the range 9-20%.
If only we had super high efficient solar cells, the whole world would only be using solar to […]
Summary: The mounting structure is the supporting structure that holds the solar panels or arrays of solar panels to the ground.
When you see solar panels, whether on rooftops or on the ground, you see them […]
