The solar Rooftop PV System for solar power generation is becoming more popular. Because the production of electricity through coal, petroleum, hydro, or nuclear, i.e., converter plants, is becoming increasingly expensive, and these are not environment friendly. Frequent power cuts have increased the dependency on Diesel Generator sets; thus, the atmosphere is experiencing high alerts on ecosystem balance, and global warming is growing almost daily.
People had started thinking of an alternate way to satisfy their electricity needs. The demand and supply gap for energy is increasing day by day. In a solar photovoltaic system, the solar panels are installed on the roof of any residential, institutional, social, government, industrial, or commercial buildings. Several solar panels are joined together to create a solar array. It is also known as a solar electric system.
What is the purpose of the PV solar system, and how it works?
The primary purpose of the solar PV system is to generate electricity by using solar energy. This electricity is used for various purposes such as lighting, water pumping, traffic signals, heating, etc.
Solar panels use layers of unique materials called semiconductors (Solar cells) that convert sunlight into electricity when exposed to sufficient sunlight. PV systems contain inverters to change direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC). AC is the standard electrical power that we use in our homes.
PV cells are connected to solar panels mounted in an orientation to take the most advantage of the sunlight. This installation can be placed on rooftops, canopies, on the ground, or integrated into roofing shingles or other building materials.
Benefits of installing solar PV system:
- The fuel source for a solar panel is sunlight, which is direct, accessible, and endless.
- It is clean green energy, 100% environment friendly, and inherently short circuit protected.
- It can generate power from milli-watts to several megawatts. It can be used for almost every device, from a small electronic device to a large-scale MW (Megawatt) power generation station.
- This system can generate electricity anywhere, as it only requires sunlight to proceed. That is why they are versatile in nature.
Is a solar panel right for your property?
Installing solar energy PV systems in homes or your building offers many benefits. Installing a rooftop solar power system is the first step to saving energy, money, and the environment. This could be the best alternative if your home has heavy energy requirements.
Types of solar PV systems.
There are three types of solar PV systems: grid-connected, hybrid, and off-grid.
Grid-connected solar photovoltaic systems: Also comprehended as the utility-interactive PV system, this photovoltaic module utilizes a basic grid-tied inverter. It does not need a battery to perform and has essential components. It converts PV solar energy into AC power through the inverter. It is an empirical solar PV module that diminishes overall electricity consumption.
Hybrid solar photovoltaic systems: These kinds of PV modules are a revised version of a grid-tied system and consist of a battery backup. It is incorporated with diesel generators and converts energy to AC or DC voltage.
Off-grid solar photovoltaic systems: It is an immaculate device for humans who cannot use grid-connected solar photovoltaic systems because of geographical restrictions or high costs.
