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

    ::Looks at periodic table for sand::

    why do the holes go back to the holes, and the extra electrons back to the phosphorus? shouldn’t the holes go to the electrons so the forces can balance?

  3. Tasty Pie on April 19, 2021 at 12:14 am

    I don’t get the moment when photons hit electrons creating free electrons and holes, then the electrons move to the N side and the holes move to the P side under the electric fields at depletion zone. But doesn’t it make disappear the electric field as the electrons and holes now evenly distributed?? Since now we don’t have the electric field at the depletion zone further movement of holes and electrons is stopped. Perhaps, this is a too simple explanation of how solar cells work and the quantitative measurements are needed.

    May Allah bless you alot sir!

    Do the green house gases emitted during fabrication of PV cells balance out the power generated by them? If yes how much time duration ?

    This channel is really good at teaching imo

  7. sharfaz hameed on April 19, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Wow what a great video. I knew nothing how it works n when searched for some videos I chose this n I am fired up.

  8. Not Anna Jones on April 19, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Great animation, voice over and lesson!!

  9. ASMA on April 19, 2021 at 12:22 am

    How to make moving animations…

  10. Guido Cedrone on April 19, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Il video della tecnologie dei panneli fotovoltaici è molto interessante cè un piccolo problems quando il è in ligua inglese preferisco che ci siano dei sotto titoli because I speak little inglish il resto è okay

    🌞 💪…!!!

  12. Dre Kelley on April 19, 2021 at 12:24 am

    It’s amazing people are able figure this stuff out. Just amazing what humans do. Great video. How long does it take to make this video?

  13. Ayoub King on April 19, 2021 at 12:29 am

    The oneeeee hihihihihi

  14. zystem on April 19, 2021 at 12:30 am

    2:40 I think N-side will be Negative on upside , and P-side will be Positive in downside , electron will moving from – to +

    Good,I Liked Your Channel.

  16. Brhane Amha on April 19, 2021 at 12:30 am

    What does hole movement mean?? How does the hole move? we need details of this.

  18. EDU plus on April 19, 2021 at 12:31 am

    Very good explanations

    Solar panels works with brightness from the sun or lamp.

    Couldn’t find a better channel!!!

  27. Yngve Ellingsen on April 19, 2021 at 12:40 am

    Possibly the best and most detailed video on solar cells that I’ve ever stumbled upon. Great work!

  28. Skeptical on April 19, 2021 at 12:41 am

    i bet most people don’t even know the complexity of creating his videos.

    Suddenly one day I just curious to know how solar cell work..after seeing this video I really understand a lot..

  32. karim Elgyar on April 19, 2021 at 12:47 am

    you’re in another level compared to any PV videos over there !!

    Good to know that here in india the solar power percentage is more than 10% of the total energy input.. seeing the potential of solar energy here in the country along with the rapid infrastructure already getting in place, we can really expect solar energy to be the next form of energy for the nation and the world too…

    outstanding sir

    Electricity is just electrons moving

  43. Yamthik Yamthik on April 19, 2021 at 12:59 am

    1:09 exactly😊

  44. Akademik on April 19, 2021 at 1:01 am

    1:11 Absolute genius 🤣

  45. Dina mustafa on April 19, 2021 at 1:02 am

    I don’t understand something, you say that this photon energy is sufficient to generate electron hole pair in the depletion region, do you mean the electron hole pairs in the p – region get high energy to be in the depletion region?

  46. Oumar Neville on April 19, 2021 at 1:03 am

  48. Rick on April 19, 2021 at 1:06 am

    I like the fact he is explaining it without music playing in the background.

  49. James Davidson on April 19, 2021 at 1:06 am

    The electrons look too cursed.

  50. Cyril Riceball on April 19, 2021 at 1:06 am

    Why not take solar in gaseous form. Solar Panels and windmills are a scam. They are unnatural. It places extra stress on your roof! It is unreliable. It is expensive. You save nothing, in fact, you spend more. Go with natural gas, reliable, cheap, environmentally friendly and most of all – it is all NATURAL. No refining, No additives, just out of the ground and delivered to you for a cheaper price. The infrastructure is already in place.
