What is photovoltaics?
Photovoltaics (PV) stands for the generation of electricity from sunlight. This is done with the aid of solar cells or solar modules, making use of aq sophisticated technology. The following sections will tell you more about the individual components and how a photovoltaic installation works.
A closer look at the interaction between the individual components in a photovoltaic installation.
Made up of several solar cells, solar modules or arrays are basically the generators in any photovoltaic system. There are different kinds of solar modules.
These devices are needed to convert the direct current obtained from the sunlight into usable 230V alternating current (AC) that can then be fed into the public grid.
Depending on the location and individual needs, a distinction is made between grid - connected and self - supporting units. The majority are grid - connected because they are also generally more economical than their insular counterparts.
In the beginning, only roofs were fitted with solar panels. Take a look for yourself at the possibilities you nowadays have for installing a photovoltaic systems.
