I-V Characteristics of Solar Cell (I) Virtual Lab

General Aim of I-V Characteristics of Solar Cell (I) Experiment

To study the I-V characteristics of a solar cell (or PV cell) in dark and under illumination conditions.

I-V Characteristics of Solar Cell (I) Experiment Method

Simple circuit to study I-V with a lamp.

Learning Objectives of I-V Solar Cell Characteristics Experiment (I)

  • Describe the construction and operation of the PV cell.

  • Enumerates the different factors that may affect the operation of the PV cell.

  • Analyze the equivalent circuit of the PV cell and its parameters.

I-V Characteristics of Solar Cell Experiment Theory (l)

Solar cells are generally made from semiconducting materials, which are sensitive to structural and environmental factors, e.g, the light intensity, which depends on the power delivered by the solar cell.

I-V Solar Cell Characteristics Virtual Experiment (I) Principle

In I-V Characteristics of Solar Cell (I) experiment, The solar cell is connected in a series circuit consisting of variable resistance, dc battery, ammeter and voltmeter that is connected in parallel to the cell. By continuously varying the value of the load resistance, we can obtain the I-V characteristics at different bias voltage and light intensity.
