PHOTOVOLTAICS PIYUSH PIYUSH ID-101317400 ABSTRACT The report covers the generation of electricity by photovoltaic cells. The main idea of this report is to provide knowledge to the scholar about the photovoltaic power generation and how we can use PV cells for the production of electricity. In this report there is an explanation of how PV cells can be used for the production of electricity. The report consists of how concentrating collectors, thin film technology, building integrated systems and flat plate collectors can be used. The material used for the production of photovoltaic cells are polycrystalline silicon, thin film materials and single crystal. The report consists of manufacturing technology used in the production of photovoltaic cells and how we can improve the cell efficiency and other monetary aspects of photovoltaic technology. However, the photovoltaic efficiency and production costs has not reached up to the highest level because of the cost related issues and this technology is not able to replace the conventional sources of energy such as coal, gas and nuclear powered generating facilities. Photovoltaic power is used in remote applications such as communications, villages and homes in many developing countries. In many areas the rooftop installation of solar panels is smaller but it is rapidly increasing at a great pace. As the industrial sciences narrow down the cost gap, more applications are increasing and the use of photovoltaic panel has increased.
