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

    Best video

  2. Rebaz Ahmad on December 20, 2020 at 10:34 pm

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

  3. Abujar Ansari on December 20, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    Why depletion region is not finish in solar cell?

  4. Junaid Bangash on December 20, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    Great video

  5. JKhan Baloch on December 20, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    Can we increase Fill Factor value?

  6. Gabriel Martinez on December 20, 2020 at 10:38 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.

    Mind blowing

    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 . . . . . . * . . . . .

    This is easily one of the best explanations, thank you.

    DUGH?

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

    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..

  16. Samrät Prajapati on December 20, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    When you bond with someone – you loose freedom. Haha

  17. Dmitry Krasikov on December 20, 2020 at 10:47 pm

    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.

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

  20. Romana Merlene on December 20, 2020 at 10:51 pm

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

  21. Gaurav Bedi on December 20, 2020 at 10:53 pm

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

  22. JKhan Baloch on December 20, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    Excellent Detail about Cell and also regarding Solar..

  23. EBoy Tuber on December 20, 2020 at 10:58 pm

    Love the analogy at 1:11 LOL

  24. makenzie lambert on December 20, 2020 at 10:59 pm

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

  28. Sam Nelson on December 20, 2020 at 11:02 pm

    The most common element on earth is… SAND?

  29. Yadunath Shelke on December 20, 2020 at 11:02 pm

    Very good explanation and animation.Loved your explanation.🤗🤗🤗🤗🙂🙂

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

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

  32. Almas Zahir on December 20, 2020 at 11:09 pm

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

  33. Ahmed S on December 20, 2020 at 11:09 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!

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

    Really it’s too good to clear the concept.

  41. Barbu Vulc on December 20, 2020 at 11:18 pm

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

  42. Anshu Anmol on December 20, 2020 at 11:18 pm

    Well explained… thnx 😊😊

  43. bthebest on December 20, 2020 at 11:21 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..

  44. enigmamusement on December 20, 2020 at 11:22 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 /*;,.

  45. Jenny Fox on December 20, 2020 at 11:23 pm

    Omg. Lol unexpected definition of bonding.

  46. Zahid Hussain on December 20, 2020 at 11:26 pm

    great video, made it easy to understand

  48. sahana sadasivam on December 20, 2020 at 11:28 pm

    Can you make video about wireless charging

  49. Sanjay Sharma on December 20, 2020 at 11:28 pm

    nicely described

  50. AliChank on December 20, 2020 at 11:29 pm

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