Abstract

As solar power becomes increasingly popular as a clean and renewable energy source, there is a need to better understand the technology used to convert sunlight into electricity. Bell Labs first used the photovoltaic effect to harness the striking of photons on a solar panel to create an electrical charge. In my paper, I propose two novel methods to increase the efficiency of solar panels. The first method utilizes solar tracking and computer science to tilt solar panels to face directly toward the sun throughout the day to maximize photon strikes. The second method concentrates photons through a magnifying glass to maximize the surface area of light being focused onto the panel. Developing better approaches such as those suggested in my paper have the potential to make solar panels more efficient and affordable, thereby increasing the scope of the solar power market.
