FUNCTIONING

Photovoltaic solar energy is based on the capture of solar energy (photons) and its subsequent conversion into electrical energy (electrons).

In order to achieve this conversion, panels or photovoltaic solar panels composed of groups of inter-connected solar cells are used. Photons, originating from solar radiation, reach the cells' surface and are absorbed there by semiconductor materials. The impact of these photons frees the electrons permitting them to circulate and create electricity.

Photovoltaic modules permit the entry of direct as well as diffuse radiation, which allow for the generation of electrical energy even on cloudy days.

For the purpose of consuming solar energy at any time of the day or night, said energy is stored in batteries. To regulate the loading and downloading of the batteries, a solar charge controller is required. Its main function is to prevent overloads and excessive downloads of the battery in order for it to operate at maximum efficiency.

Additionally, it is advisable to incorporate an electronic control unit (ECU) which can control the “on” and “off” settings as well as light intensity. This ECU can be programmed to suit the lighting needs of the user, in addition to extending the longevity of installation elements particularly those which are battery-related.
