How do Solar cells work?

In the last two decades the contribution of solar energy to the world’s total energy supply has grown significantly. This video will show how solar cell or photovoltaic cell produce electricity.

Check out this interesting video from New Physicist to learn more about PV cells – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfP5YdJn-c4

    Excellent Detail about Cell and also regarding Solar..

  2. AliChank on December 9, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    And that is why LED can produce current when light is shined on it

  3. A. Acharya on December 9, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    Really it’s too good to clear the concept.

    Did you just made an inti marriage propaganda in a science clip? Stick to the science and leave the anti family stuff to Marxists.

    6:32 This proves that a battery-powered world couldn’t be possible.

    Can we increase Fill Factor value?

  8. Hitesh Meena on December 9, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    Mind blowing

  9. Sanjay Sharma on December 9, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    nicely described

    This video is great. I’m not smart, like at all, but everything was so well described that I could comprehend it! … well most of it haha
    Thanks

    I’m mining sand while watching this..

  14. Gabriel Martinez on December 9, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    Why does the N side become positively charged near the depletion boundary when the N side is full of free electrons. I would think it remains negatively charged.

  15. Code demon on December 9, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    "When you are bonded with someone you lose your freedom" dam thats dark

  16. Abujar Ansari on December 9, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    Why depletion region is not finish in solar cell?

  17. Jenny Fox on December 9, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Omg. Lol unexpected definition of bonding.

  18. Dag on December 9, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    Is the life of a solar collector increased by diminished light due to soiled face??

  19. Sam Nelson on December 9, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    The most common element on earth is… SAND?

  20. bthebest on December 9, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    How about we keep burning coal so it emits carbon dioxide into the air so the trees can benefit from it, giving us more lumber, cleaner air and a beautiful scenery to see..

  21. Payal Singh on December 9, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    Nice

  22. TheGamecheater100 on December 9, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    great video, made it easy to understand

  23. Samrät Prajapati on December 9, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    When you bond with someone – you loose freedom. Haha

  24. EBoy Tuber on December 9, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    Love the analogy at 1:11 LOL

    does it works in rainy season
    how does it works in rainy and winter season

  27. Sean McDonald on December 9, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Im learning about solar power . . . . . . . . . . . .and apparently how relationships work . . . . . . "When you are bonded to someone, you lose your freedom" will haunt me now and forever . . . .i will leave wiser but bitter and cynical . . . .😄😄😄 . . .* puts on Fedora and trenchcoat, walks out into rain . . . . . . * . . . . .

    In fact, the driving force for the separation of charge carriers and creation of steady-state currents is the gradients of electrochemical potentials of free electrons and holes. Electric fields is just one of the three components in this driving force.

  29. Almas Zahir on December 9, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Very good explanation with animation to understand the working of solar cell…..

  30. Mr.TurBo_GameR on December 9, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Good video

  31. Sirichandana Ammulu on December 9, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Sir why don’t you make a playlist for ECE department also……
    I mean playlist for Electronics and communication engineering

  32. Gaurav Bedi on December 9, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    When you’re bonded with someone, you lose your freedom 😂😂

    1:11 idk man, I’m single and I feel pretty unfree.

  39. Romana Merlene on December 9, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    I bought instruction from Avasva and I build it very very cheap.

  41. enigmamusement on December 9, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    I imagine vertical layers of panels similar to floor levels of a building. Sunlight is then reflected from a wall-sized mirror/ aluminum foiled wall that stands in front of the panels top to bottom so that sunlight is reflected between the panels /*;,.

  42. Karan Singh on December 9, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    Sir how the solar cell works in shade or bad weathers…?

    Can you make video about wireless charging

  47. Ahmed S on December 9, 2020 at 10:52 pm

    The amount of disappointment I feel now is unimaginable. Believe it or not, my professor spent more than 9 lectures trying to explain this simple concept and he couldn’t get it through!!! Ugh …
    This video is incredibly amazing and easy to understand, thank you!

    Such a great illustration. Who on earth dislikes such a great video? and WHY?
