Photovoltaic Design

Photovoltaic design may refer to the design of photovoltaic materials such as thin film based solar cells or it may refer to the design of larger more complete systems such as solar concentrators, solar mirrors, solar trackers....etc.

The subject of solar cell design is a multidisciplinary field that requires a strong understanding of semiconductor physics, carrier generation, recombination, band gaps, material science, optics.....etc. This subject may also be considered as part of solid state physics in the broader sense.

The design of larger more complete systems requires experience in optics. System designers must consider optimizing the system. This means achieving high energy conversion efficiencies which is a measure of how efficiently the incoming beams from the sun are converted into electrical energy. A good designer will choose suitable materials with minimum optical losses and will design so that more of the Sun's light is directed onto the solar cells. Depending on available area, weight, application, location, budget....etc, different materials and designs can be preferred.

For any projects involving design, testing, troubleshooting or research & development of photovoltaic devices, contact us and our World class photovoltaic designers will help you.

If you are mostly interested in our manufacturing capabilities instead of engineering capabilities, we recommend you to visit our custom manufacturing site
