In This Video You Will Learn The Importance of a Bypass Diode in Solar Panel & Learn How To Connect a Bypass Diode to your Own Solar Cells to Improve The Efficiency of Solar Panel Under a Partial Shading Conditions.
We Will Also See How To Choose a Bypass Diode For Your Application .
Due To The Partial Shading on a Solar Panel Current loss occur ,this loss can be significantly reduced with the help of a bypass diode connected in a parallel to a solar cell .
So When Some Solar cell’s are Under Shade Bypass Diode Will Pass The Energy Through Them ,While Without The Bypass Diode Solar Panel Under Shade Will Loose The Energy In the Form of a Heat
Prof. Richard Lunt of the Michigan State University and his team developed a completely new solar cell. This cell is transparent like glass and uses a much broader spectrum of light than common solar cells. With this technology in the near future it will be possible to charge mobile devices or vehicles. More over with transparent solar cells we could use buildings like skyscrapers to harvest energy.
