PV solar systems and development of semiconductor materials
MetadataShow full item record
Photovoltaic conversion (PV) of solar energy based on the solar cells, is becoming acceptable for various applications. One of the most up-to-date semiconductor technologies, it enables development of the systems for lighting, supplying electrical energy to radio and TV stations, electromotors (kW power) for wide application in industry, agriculture and individual homes, for refrigerators for different purposes etc. The bases of this technology are semiconductor materials. In this paper we analyze the influence of the basic semiconductor materials on further increase of applications of PV systems.
