Climate change & depleting resources of fossil fuels along with the rise in use of E cars & batter storage have increased the significance of renewable energy sources. PV – Photovoltaic panels create electricity from sunlight.
Since 2009, The IRFTS company is specialised in the design and marketing of mounting systems for multi-energy modules: Photovoltaic, thermal, aerothermal and hybrid.
Sunlight is a form of electromagnetic radiation that contains small packets of energy called photons, when the sunlight falls on the PV cell photons are absorbed and transfer their energy to the solar cell releasing electrons that generate electricity. the design of the modules is such that the movement of electrons in a uniform direction generates direct current DC.
The DC needs to be converted to AC alternating current for use in domestic applications.
An inverter is used to convert DC to AC and operates as a protection, earthing and metering system.
Site considerations for Photovoltaic panels
The more sunlight falling on the pv panel the greater the amount of electricity produced
The ideal location for pv modules is south facing with a 30° – 35° inclination
