Photovoltaic Systems (PV Solar) and Renewable Heat Initiatives

20
Jul
Ground source heat pumps can be powered by renewable power sources such as photovoltaic solar panels which take their energy efficiency to another level.
 
A photovoltaic (PV) system makes use of solar energy to generate electricity. This system incorporates multiple solar panels combined with an inverter along with other electrical and mechanical hardware to generate electricity. PV systems can be scaled as per the requirement and can suit anything from a small rooftop or a portable system to a large scale generation plant.
 
How does the system convert solar energy into electricity?
Sunlight is made up of photons which are nothing but packets of energy. Once these fall onto the solar panels, these through the process called the photovoltaic effect, create an electric current. Every solar panel produces a small amount of energy. Multiple panels are linked together to produce higher amounts of energy as a solar array.
 
The electricity produced from such a solar array is in the form of a direct current (DC). This direct current must be converted into alternating current (AC) for it to be useful. This current is converted from DC to AC with the help of an inverter. Once converted to AC electricity, it can be used to power electronics locally or can be transferred to an electrical grid for use elsewhere.
 
The ground source heat pumps provided by Eco House Solutions are designed for use with power generated on-site by photovoltaic systems, wind turbines, or battery storage.
