Photovoltaic panels have their unique performance and degradation, so what are the performance and degradation of photovoltaic panels? Let's go and have a look next.
Here is the content list:
Performance of photovoltaic panels
Degradation of photovoltaic panels
The performance of photovoltaic panels is usually rated under standard test conditions (STC): the irradiance of the photovoltaic panel is 1,000 W/m2, the solar spectrum of the photovoltaic panel is AM 1.5, and the temperature of the photovoltaic panel is 25 °C. The actual voltage and current output of the photovoltaic panel will vary with the changes in lighting, temperature, and load conditions, so there is never a specific voltage when the photovoltaic panel is running. The performance of photovoltaic panels depends on geographic location, time of day, day of the year, solar irradiance, direction and inclination of photovoltaic panels, cloud cover, shadows, pollution, state of charge, and temperature.
To obtain the best performance of the photovoltaic panel, the photovoltaic panel needs to be made of similar photovoltaic panels that are perpendicular to the direct sunlight. Bypass diodes are used to bypass damaged or shadowed photovoltaic panels and optimize output. These bypass diodes are usually placed along the photovoltaic panel to create a continuous flow.
Open circuit voltage or V OC is the maximum voltage that the module can generate when it is not connected to a circuit or system. V OC can be measured directly on the terminal of the light-emitting module or the disconnected cable with a voltmeter.
The rated peak power Wp is the maximum output (not the maximum possible output) under standard test conditions. The size of a typical module is approximately 1 x 2 m (3 ft x 7 ft), and the rated power ranges from as low as 75 W to as high as 600 W, depending on the efficiency of the photovoltaic panel. During the photovoltaic panel test, the photovoltaic panel test module will be graded according to its test results. A typical manufacturer may rate its modules in 5 W increments and rate them as +/- 3%, +/- 5%, +3/ -0%, or +5/-0%.
Although most photovoltaic panels on the market have passed UL certification, which means that photovoltaic panels have passed the test against hail, the ability of photovoltaic panels to resist rain, hail, heavy snow loads, and thermal cycle damage varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.
Potential-induced degradation (also known as PID) is the potential-induced performance degradation in crystalline photovoltaic panel modules, which is caused by so-called stray currents. This effect may cause up to 30% of the power loss of the photovoltaic panel.
The biggest challenge facing photovoltaic panel technology is the purchase price per watt of electricity. The advancement of photovoltaic panel technology has brought about the process of "doping" the silicon substrate to reduce the activation energy so that the photovoltaic panel can more effectively convert photons into recyclable electrons.
Chemicals such as Boron (p-type) are applied to semiconductor crystals to generate donor and acceptor energy levels closer to the valence band and conductor band. In doing so, the addition of boron impurity reduced the activation energy from 1.12 eV to 0.05 eV twenty times. Because the potential difference is so low, boron can be thermally ionized at room temperature. This allows free energy carriers to exist in the conduction and valence bands of the photovoltaic panel, thereby allowing more photons of the photovoltaic panel to be converted into electrons.
To produce better photovoltaic panels, the manufacturer of Anhui JF Solar Technology Co., Ltd. (JF Solar) has made the greatest test on the performance of photovoltaic panels and has developed the technical performance of photovoltaic panels.
