Photovoltaic (PV) cells help to convert solar light photons into electricity. Photovoltaic solar cells carry out two major functions: photo generation of charge carriers (electrons and holes) in a light-absorbing material, and separation of the charge carriers to a conductive contact that will transmit the electricity.

Photovoltaic arrays help to derive electricity directly from the sun's radiation and have tremendous potential to alter the economics and environmental impact of electrical power generation. The solar radiation received by the PV array is sent through a charge controller which in turn is passed through a battery system. The output from the battery is passed through a DC to AC converter and subsequently passed through circuit breaker boxes to derive AC and DC volts.

Now, since most solar arrays are composed of "strings" of matched panels, wired in series, when individual panels experience minor variations in output, they disrupt the output of the string and the entire array, cutting overall energy harvest by 5 to 30 percent. This affects the solar performance output of the whole process. Therefore, what is required here is a unique solar architecture that addresses this inherent vulnerability of the system.

There are providers who offer design and manufacturing services to make efficient solar PV systems for industries. They offer designer services which can aid in proposing suggestions about PV panel location, orientation and overall system size. They also provide installers who can ensure that a safe, simple wiring scheme with easy expansion and per-panel monitoring is installed. And some experienced players in this field also provide system operators who help to improve the expected output and payback from the whole process.

Let us look at the cost benefits of tying up with such providers.

1. Since wiring is a costly, time-consuming aspect of solar array installation, it requires series-string array where each panel must be connected to adjacent panels with wiring and junction boxes, and a return line run from the end of each string. By using the services of power electronics providers, industries can eliminate the need for a return line.

2. Using efficient modules industries can save up to five 70-watt thin-film panel, greatly reducing the number of junction and combiner boxes, as well as wiring and labor costs.

3. The resultant effect is a faster, smarter, less expensive installation. So power starts flowing sooner, and crews can complete more installations in the same amount of time.

Overall, by utilizing the products offered by these companies, clients can enjoy reduced design complexity, consistent monitoring of system performance, increased power production and safe solar power installation.
