Solar energy refers to the massive amount of photons released by the sun, then harnessed via a photovoltaic solar panel to produce electricity. In simple terms, solar energy would refer to placing a solar panel, say on your roof, where it gets direct sun’s rays and once the connection is right, you will be tapping energy into your premise.
Ever wondered how sunlight is converted to electricity? Well,today we will journey with you through the mysteries. First there’s what you will need to make this a fruitful process;
Place the panel on a place where it gets direct sunlight. Connect the wires to an inverter then to a car battery where the energy will be stored.
Once the installation is complete, the magic will happen and electricity will be flowing.
Solar panels are most effective when the sky is clear. Nevertheless, you will still harvest power even on a cloudy or rainy day, only a bit lesser compared to a sunny clear day.
The first type is Solar cell systems/ photovoltaic system. in this type energy is produced directly from the sunlight (the electrons are knocked loose from the electons by the solar energy they then flow through th semiconductor material hence energy is produced).
Secondly, we have the Solar water heating system – as the name suggests, it is about heating water using heat from the sunlight. Solar water plants are also another type. This is type is mainly used in industries. Solar energy in this industrial plants is usd in ways such as : Thirdly, Engine system – mirrored dish in shape of large setellite dish that concentraes heat from the sun is used.
Parabolic trough system – sun’s energy is captured using long curved mirrors that are rectangula and tilted towarz the sun.
lastly, power tower systems– in this huge field mirrors that concentrate sunlight onto the top of a tower that has a receiver with molten salt silts. Heat from this salt silts geberates electricity using a convectional steam generator.
The fourth type is indirect solar heating – materials that will heat up at daytime and the. release the heat at night are used.This type was commonly usd by acient people.
Solar energy technology is greatly advancing with time and is expected to have improved greatly in the years to come.
