The main elements of a photovoltaic system are:
The Solar Panel or Solar Module is the device responsible for capturing the solar radiation emitted during the day to be used as electric energy.
These devices are composed of small cells of either monocrystalline or polycrystalline silicon, interconnected and encapsulated in tempered glass, converting the solar radiation that hits its surface to electrical energy through the photoelectric effect. Commercial solar panels can contain 60 or 72 cells depending on their dimensions.
EcoTip: The photoelectric effect was discovered in 1905 by A. Einstein making it a creditor of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922, and explains how photons (light particles) impact the electrons of a material giving rise to an electric current.
It is the device that is responsible for transforming the direct current (DC) energy generated by solar panels to AC electricity.
This device is responsible for recording the energy injected by the photovoltaic system directly into the electrical grid on the interconnection node (onslaught), as well as the energy demanded at CFE.
Solar panels capture solar radiation emitted during the day to convert it into energy, but they don’t store it.
