Solar cells play an important role in the development of
alternative, non-fossil energy sources. They convert light energy
directly into electric energy.
This experiment examines the influence of the intensity of
illumination an the open circuit voltage and the short-circuit
current. The intensity of illumination can be varied by changing
the distance to the source or by changing the angle of
- Experiment is part of a complete solution set with a total of 26 experiments for Renewable Energy solar cells, wind power, water power
- Safe experimentation: the lamp is protected against touch, the housing is well ventilated with the aid of holes and is only slightly heated
- Doubled learning success: Electric circuit diagram on top, real components can be seen at the bottom
What influence does the intensity of illumination have on the
voltage and current of a solar cell?
Change the intensity of illumination and measure the
short-circuit current and the open circuit voltage of the solar
cell. Draw a diagram of the measurement values.
