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

    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 /*;,.

    Nice

    great video, made it easy to understand

    When you bond with someone – you loose freedom. Haha

    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.

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

    The most common element on earth is… SAND?

    I’m mining sand while watching this..

    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

    Love the analogy at 1:11 LOL

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

  18. Rebaz Ahmad on December 29, 2020 at 11:13 pm

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

    Thanks this is so helpful

  22. JKhan Baloch on December 29, 2020 at 11:15 pm

    Can we increase Fill Factor value?

  23. Abujar Ansari on December 29, 2020 at 11:15 pm

    Why depletion region is not finish in solar cell?

  24. samuils on December 29, 2020 at 11:16 pm

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

  25. Gabriel Martinez on December 29, 2020 at 11:19 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.

  26. Junaid Bangash on December 29, 2020 at 11:21 pm

    Great video

  27. Zahid Hussain on December 29, 2020 at 11:22 pm

    Thank you

  28. Sanjay Sharma on December 29, 2020 at 11:25 pm

    nicely described

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

    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..

  36. Ahmed S on December 29, 2020 at 11:31 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!

  37. Tianyu Yuan on December 29, 2020 at 11:35 pm

    Several typos: P end is positively charged and N end is negative. Also, the electric field direction should be opposite.

  38. Yadunath Shelke on December 29, 2020 at 11:35 pm

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

  39. Gaurav Bedi on December 29, 2020 at 11:35 pm

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

  40. Jenny Fox on December 29, 2020 at 11:36 pm

    Omg. Lol unexpected definition of bonding.

  41. rahim rahim on December 29, 2020 at 11:40 pm

    Can you make video about wireless charging

  44. JKhan Baloch on December 29, 2020 at 11:43 pm

    Excellent Detail about Cell and also regarding Solar..

  45. AliChank on December 29, 2020 at 11:45 pm

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

  46. Code demon on December 29, 2020 at 11:45 pm

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

  47. Karan Singh on December 29, 2020 at 11:47 pm

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

  48. A. Acharya on December 29, 2020 at 11:49 pm

    Really it’s too good to clear the concept.

  49. Almas Zahir on December 29, 2020 at 11:52 pm

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

  50. First Name on December 29, 2020 at 11:52 pm

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