Analysis on Efficiency of Power Generation for Various Sun Tracking and Fixed Solar Cells under Different Sunshine Environment
Solar energy directly converses light energy into DC power without fuel, no moving parts, no pollution, and no noise with long life-span more than about twenty years. Its application is extensive and the set up of solar generation can be scattered and in a small amount on demand which is the most available of all renewable energy, and is the most practical and effective energy. There are many kinds of solar cell, such first generation as Mono-crystalline Silicon, Multi-crystalline Silicon, and Amorphous Silicon, the second generation as Film Photovoltaic and the third generation as Dye-Sensitized (DSSCs) etc. The utilization of solar energy is greatly influenced by environmental change with the main reason of solar radiation. This research collects the data from the test of Mono-crystalline Silicon, Multi-crystalline Silicon, and Film Photovaltaic solar cells in different solar radiation, and then conducts the analysis and research thereby. Using the program written by Labview, collect the data of voltage, current, and the power, solar radiation, and temperature emitted by solar cells under test for analysis. And then discuss the results of the collected data by Matlab for data analysis.
