Maintenance is an important criterion when installing solar systems. Proper maintenance ensures the system's optimum work capacity. In other words, its working conditions and its life is sustained for as long as possible. Solar systems can indeed be easily maintained when compared to diesel generators however they are not maintenance-free. This article will cover the preventative maintenance of major components of a PV system. First, we go through the major components in a solar system and its functions and then provide a checklist for reference.
Solar energy is harnessed from the sun by photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight into electricity. The process of converting the sun’s rays into electricity is called the photoelectric effect. It presents as a sustainable source of energy that can reduce carbon emissions and tackle climate change.
Solar modules work based on Photoelectric effect and in the simplest words, light energy conversion to electricity is photoelectric effect. There are different applications for photoelectric effect, but all are same basis. Here, we want to back to school and discuss about Photoelectric effect but in practical way without rocket science. Basically, we will find atomic model of matter and we will see there are some tiny particles that their actions and reactions provide energy.
