For decades, solar power is only identified as the conversion of energy from the

sun’s light to electricity. While this is an accurate definition, most people do not

know that the energy harvested must first be converted to electrical energy to be

able to produce generally functional electricity. The conversion is made possible

through the photovoltaic or PV, a method that uses semiconductors to convert

the sun’s radiation to electrical energy.

Components of a Simple Solar Power System

Solar or photovoltaic cells

The assembly of semiconductors and electronics or solar cells is enclosed in a

photovoltaic module, more commonly known as a solar panel. Several solar

panels are called solar panel array.


A solar panel collects and generates energy from the sun’s radiation. PV panels

convert this energy to direct current electricity, a current that is produced by

batteries. Although connecting a DC load directly to the solar panel is possible,

batteries play an important role to a properly working photovoltaic system.


The battery stores energy generated by the PV panels

It stores excess energy that exceeds that of what the load requires

The battery serves as a back-up energy source when there is no supply
