Abstract

ABSTRACT: The present study examines the solar energy and solar cell research in extensively. Energy is an essence of any human activity. The energy system at the beginning of the 21st century is characterized by six billion people that live on the Earth and the total energy consumption of approximately 1.3 × 1010 kW. In order to make photovoltaic power generation an economically viable option, the cost of solar cell devices has to be lowered. South Africa represents the spot of highest solar insulation in the world. The main reason is that South Africa has the perfect climate for solar energy. A solar cell is an electronic device which directly converts sunlight into electricity. Light shining on the solar cell produces both a current and a voltage to generate electric power. This process requires firstly, a material in which the absorption of light raises an electron to a higher energy state, and secondly, the movement of this higher energy electron from the solar cell into an external circuit. The electron then dissipates its energy in the external circuit and returns to the solar cell. A variety of materials and processes can potentially satisfy the requirements for photovoltaic energy conversion, but in practice nearly all photovoltaic energy conversion uses semiconductor materials in the form of a p-n junction.
