Solar Power System and Solar System Interpretation


The Sun can generate system


Solar energy is just the energy of sunlight. Solar power systems consist of solar photovoltaic panels and solar inverters that capture and convert sunlight into electricity that you can use at home.


 Photovoltaic panels do not capture the sun's heat - they trap sunlight. So it doesn't matter if you live in a place where the average temperature is not high, because this is the time of the sun. There are many people in Perth and more extensive Western Australia to go!


 Solar energy is a renewable energy source because it can be used without consuming our major source reserves. Unlike fossil fuels, the sun will not run out - it just keeps going.


 There are two major solar energy technologies: solar thermal energy and solar photovoltaic (PV).


Solar thermal system


 Solar thermal systems work by converting sunlight into heat (heat) energy, which can be used to heat homes or water. In most cases, this technology is used to drive turbines and power generation on a larger scale.


 Solar Photovoltaic (PV)


 Modern solar photovoltaic (PV) panels consist of PV cells. Solar panel batteries convert sunlight directly to direct current (DC) electricity and can be converted to alternating current (AC) electricity using solar inverters. Photovoltaic panels make up the vast majority of panels you see on the roofs of Western Australia and around the world.



The definition of "photovoltaic" (PV): Photo refers to "light". Photons are energy particles from the sun. Volt means "generate voltage or voltage." So together, photovoltaics simply mean "producing voltage from light."

How does a solar power system work?


1. The sun's rays hit the solar panel and the solar cell captures the photons (sun).


2. Solar cells generate DC electricity


3. The direct current is fed into the solar inverter and converted into alternating current (AC) power.


4. AC power is 240V power that you can use to power home or office appliances.


5. If the solar power system generates more electricity than the home consumes, the remaining power enters the main grid. Based on your settings, the power company will bill the electricity and provide a credit for your energy bill.
