MPPT Maximum Power Point Tracking, frequently referred to as MPPT, is an electronic system that operates the Photovoltaic (PV) modules in a manner that allows the modules to produce all the power they are capable of. MPPT is not a mechanical tracking system that “physically moves” the modules to make them point more directly at the sun, pdf file
MPPT Maximum Power Point Tracking, pdf file
MPPT The amount of electrical power generated by a photovoltaic system depends on solar irradiance (solar energy per unit area of the solar panel’s surface) and other conditions such as temperature and cloud cover. The current and voltage at which a solar module generates the maximum power is known as the maximum power point. The location of the maximum power point is not known in advance, Maximum Power Point Tracking

Photovoltaic Electricity This animation illustrates how a solar cell cut from a single crystal of Silicon is able to convert sunlight into electricity. The bottom layer is doped with a P type material such as Aluminum, Gallium or Indium to produce holes. The N type layer is doped with Phosphorous, Arsenic or Antimony to create mobile electrons
Photovoltaic Electricity Solar cell the photovoltaic effect starts with the absorption of photons in a semiconductor above its energy band-gap, leading to the generation of charge carriers (electrons and holes). These charge carriers are then separated by an internal electric field created either by a p-n or p-i-n junction within the semiconductor, or by a hetero-junction between the semiconductor and another material

Photovoltaics components of solar electricity
Photovoltaics identifies the direct conversion of sunlight into energy by means of solar cells. The conversion process is based on the photoelectric effect discovered by Alexander Bequerel in 1839. The photoelectric effect describes the release of positive and negative charge carriers in a solid state when light strikes its surface

Solar cell operation solar cells convert light energy into electrical energy either indirectly by first converting it into heat, or through a direct process known as the photovoltaic effect. The most common types of solar cells are based on the photovoltaic effect, which occurs when light falling on a two-layer semiconductor material produces a potential difference, or voltage, between the two layers
