Photovoltaics offer consumers the ability to generate electricity in a clean, quiet and reliable way. Photovoltaic systems are comprised of photovoltaic cells, devices that convert light energy directly into electricity. Because the source of light is usually the sun, they are often called solar cells.

Solar Energy, with a focus on photovoltaics, which is the technology that allows to convert energy transported in light directly into electrical energy. The Organisation of this book is roughly linked to the three lectures on photovoltaics (PV), that are given at the Faculty for Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Com.

Photovoltaic energy conversion is the direct production of electrical energy in the form of current and voltage from electromagnetic energy.

The energetic, photogenerated negative-charge carriers arriving at the cathode result in electrons, which travel through an external path.
