Solar cells and Solar panels

Solar cells are electrical components for photovoltaic systems: they convert the radiation energy of sunlight into electrical energy. Solar cells are also known as photovoltaic cells. Multiple solar cells make up a solar panel or solar module. Several solar panels can comprise a solar system with which you can supply a multi-person household with environmentally friendly electricity... The physical process of converting solar energy into electricity is called photovoltaic effect. There are three different types of solar cells are distinguished:

Monocrystalline solar cells:

  • Silicon as a semiconductor material
  • Price-intensive manufacturing process with high energy costs
  • Higher efficiency than with polycrystalline solar cells

Polycrystalline solar cells

  • Silicon as a semiconductor material
  • Low-cost manufacturing
  • Losses in efficiency due to manufacturing process

Thin-film cells

  • Several options for the semiconductor material
  • Low-cost production with low demand for raw materials
  • Lower efficiency than for crystalline solar cells

 

Depending on the situation, another cell type is available, if space is restricted; for example, the more effective crystalline solar panels can be used, while large areas with unfavorable orientation towards sunlight, then thin-film modules are better suited.
