Photovoltaic panels or solar panels are those that capture sunlight to generate energy. These are composed of photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight into direct current electricity.


Each of the parts that make up a photovoltaic installation is essential for its proper functioning.

STRUCTURE: The structures of the photovoltaic panels are passive components that facilitate the installation of the photovoltaic modules. These elements are responsible for fixing its position and keeping it stable for years.

SOLAR PANELS: As we mentioned at the beginning, solar panels are responsible for converting solar energy into electrical energy to supply the necessary power at all times. Solar panels have many variations in termsof prices and efficiency.

CHARGE REGULATORS: These are those devices whose function is to control the state of charge of the batteries to ensure that optimal filling is carried out and thus extend their useful life, that is, they manage the energy of the batteries.  There are two types of regulators: MPPT and PWM, the choice of one or the other will depend on how the solar installation is and the use that will be made of it.

BATTERY OR ACCUMULATOR: They allow  to store the electricity to  be able to use it later. The accumulated energy can be used later, for example, during hours when there is no sunlight or when the installation is not producing energy.

INVERTER: convert  the direct current that comes from the batteries into alternating or conventional current. It also works so that technicians can inspect the operation of the solar panels and so that each user can regulate the system based on better performance in general.

The development of photovoltaic installations and plants are continuously growing. In addition, currently, not only does it present advantages for the environment, but new materials and business models ensure greater savings.
