ABSTRACT

Sun is the ultimate source of all the energies in the universe, solar power is

considered one of the better renewable platforms. The energy that the sun continuously

irradiates on the earth is equal to 10000 times worldwide energetic requirements.

Photovoltaic device is the proper term for a solar-electric cell that collects sunlight and

converts it to electricity. The dominate technology in use in the photovoltaic world is

phosphorous and boron (or aluminium) doped poly-crystalline silicon wafers

approximately 0.3 mm thick. They convert solar energy to electricity at approximately

13 % efficiency. we can get 63.2% of efficiency by using nanotechnology

INTRODUCTION TO SOLAR POWER:

Sun is the ultimate source of all the

energies in the universe, solar power is

considered one of the better renewable

platforms. The energy that the sun

continuously irradiates on the earth is

equal to 10000 times worldwide

energetic requirements.

Photovoltaic device is the proper term

for a solar-electric cell that collects

sunlight and converts it to electricity.

The dominate technology in use in the

photovoltaic world is phosphorous and

boron (or aluminium) doped poly-

crystalline silicon wafers approximately

0.3 mm thick. They convert solar energy

to electricity at approximately 13 %

efficiency.

The production of electricity from

photovoltaic devices is currently

uneconomical compared to fossil fuel or

nuclear sources
