Solar PV Modules

Solar cells are the building blocks of a solar panel. Solar cells are joined together to make one solar panel at peak power production. Front side of module is covered by tempered & textured clear glass with low iron content resulting in efficient sunlight absorption. Back side is covered by EVA potent sheet to provide maximum protection from the severest environmental conditions. High torsion and corrosion resistant anodised alumaluminum provides structural strength and ease of installation. The junction box of the module is located back side. The box is rated at IP65. In each module junction box, there are two terminal both –ve & +ve terminal. To minimise the loss in output when shading occurs a bypass diodes which is connected to out terminal of the module. The aluminium frame of Module contains a hole in a suitable position for mounting.


Types of Modules:

Monocrystalline PV modules

Monocrystalline solar panels use single-crystal silicon. Because the cell is composed of a single crystal, the electrons that generate a flow of electricity have more room to move. As a result, monocrystalline panels are more efficient than their polycrystalline counterparts.

Polycrystalline PV modules

Polycrystalline solar panels are also made from silicon. However, instead of using a single crystal of silicon, manufacturers melt many fragments of silicon together to form the wafers for the panel. Because there are many crystals in each cell, there is to less freedom for the electrons to move. As a result, polycrystalline solar panels have lower efficiency ratings than monocrystalline panels.

On an average, the Polycrystalline Modules give slightly better ROI when compared to Monocrystalline PV modules due to their comparatively lower costs and similar electricity generation.
