Solar Energy

One of the cleanest energy sources on Earth, solar energy does not produce any harmful gas emissions and is one of the cleanest and most reliable renewable energy sources.

Turkey is a country that is quite rich in solar energy. Nowadays, as in the rest of the world, the need for renewable energy has significantly increased in our country due to population growth and heavy industrialization.

This is because natural gas and oil resources have been used for centuries and are on the verge of depletion, which makes meeting energy needs particularly problematic for countries that do not possess petroleum products.

Therefore, turning to solar energy, which is a cleaner and more cost-effective renewable energy source, helps alleviate this problem.

The proportion of electricity production from solar energy has increased worldwide, and electricity is generated by placing panels that produce electricity from solar energy on empty fields and lands.

The method of obtaining electrical energy from solar energy is called the “solar panel system” or “solar panel system.”

So, how is this system installed? How does it convert solar energy into electricity?

Basically, the energy carried by photons coming from the sun is collected by solar panels and then converted into heat or electrical energy.

Specifically, when photons in sunlight hit the solar cell, electrons are drawn to the panel surface, creating a voltage between the top and bottom layers of the solar panel.

The electrical circuit at the top and bottom of the panel also provides a power flow to electrical equipment. For example, to supply electrical energy to a building, solar panels can be installed according to the size of the building and the number of consumers to meet the electricity needs.

Here, the photovoltaic cells, which are what everyone wonders about and which convert sunlight into electricity, are the ones that perform this function.

The components of solar energy panels include the inverter, panel mounting system, and what is abbreviated as BOS (Balance of System).

The role of inverters here is also crucial. This is because they convert the direct current electricity coming from the solar panels into alternating current, making it usable for the grids. The infrastructure includes LV – MV cables, connectors, paralleling panels, switching equipment, low voltage panels and switchgear, transformer substations, medium/high voltage panels and switchgear, construction works, wire fences, lighting, and camera systems, turning solar energy into usable energy.
