How do Solar cells work?

In the last two decades the contribution of solar energy to the world’s total energy supply has grown significantly. This video will show how solar cell or photovoltaic cell produce electricity.

    In 3:35 part of video electrons are moving toward the region where there are excess electrons already. Why don’t they repell each other?

    Sir make an animation on WORKING OF MICROPROCESSORS and MICROCONTROLLERS.

  3. Joel Gobeh on July 2, 2020 at 12:45 pm

    Awesome and simple explanation… Thanks

    RMD CARS WAALE LIKE KARO 🙂

    And what do they use to heat the sand to 2000 degrees celcius.
    Sadly it’s coal, and lots of it.

    After watching planet of the humans, I can’t believe any of this shit

  7. Pulkit Sharma Premium Videos on July 2, 2020 at 12:48 pm

    What software was used to make this video

  8. Abulfaz Ibrahimov on July 2, 2020 at 12:48 pm

    👍. From Turkey 🇹🇷.

  9. Shantelle Adeline on July 2, 2020 at 12:50 pm

    I made it with Avasva solutions.

  10. Light on July 2, 2020 at 12:50 pm

    Is there a difference if it’s the p-region that’s exposed to the sun?

  11. Sandipan Sarkar on July 2, 2020 at 12:54 pm

    Thank you for such a simple and best explanation.

  12. Areesha Irfan on July 2, 2020 at 12:54 pm

    Good Explanation👍

  13. Amala devi on July 2, 2020 at 12:54 pm

    👍👍👍👍💯💯💯💯

    I understand the process. But once the 5 valence electrons flow to provide electricity, how are 5 new electrons available as valence electrons the next time electricity needs to flow?

  15. Babu A on July 2, 2020 at 12:56 pm

    When the light knocks the electron of silicon (in the middle layer), why does the electron move toward the negative side? Don’t the same forces repel?

  16. smita choudhury on July 2, 2020 at 12:57 pm

    Thanks a lot 😊

  17. gowtham gowtham on July 2, 2020 at 12:57 pm

    Some r saying that some solar panel are using zinc was that true

  18. William Storey on July 2, 2020 at 12:58 pm

    Forgive my ignorance. If all of the silicon electrons are bonded in the silicon crystal, how does the doping agent bind to the silicon?

  19. Dharmappa Barki on July 2, 2020 at 1:00 pm

    It is funny some people are mindlessly discussing on the narrator’s example of "bonding together leads to losing loss of freedom" That’s absolutely hoe it is… After one gets married, he or she would stop flirting with abyone else, otherwise it’s not marriage, nor the "bonding"… Yes bonding is a kind of binding…

    Turning to the semiconductor behavior, this is what precisely happens there…. The narrator has tried to bring a most common understanding to his narrative yo make learning easier and faster…

  20. Lucky Luke on July 2, 2020 at 1:00 pm

    1:22 to 3:50 is the most important part i think

  21. fawzi hadji on July 2, 2020 at 1:02 pm

    thank you a lot

  22. Jacob McKissock on July 2, 2020 at 1:03 pm

    Saw a solar panel up close for the first time. Fascinated me so I had to go and learn how they work. Your video was extremely good at explaining why and how solar panels work from beginning to end. 👍🏻

  23. SilverNature Music on July 2, 2020 at 1:05 pm

    Thanks I didn’t understand anything

  24. MD.RAFIQUL ISLAM on July 2, 2020 at 1:05 pm

    3:05-3:20 please explain someone

  25. Shu'ayb Mohammad on July 2, 2020 at 1:07 pm

    Very informative. Thank you !!

  27. Sankha Dey on July 2, 2020 at 1:09 pm

    It’s amazing

  28. You Think IT We Do it on July 2, 2020 at 1:10 pm

    please i need easy explaination

  29. Atul Rathod on July 2, 2020 at 1:11 pm

    Please hindi

  30. Kushal Joshi on July 2, 2020 at 1:15 pm

    So nicely expalined

  31. sujit chauhan on July 2, 2020 at 1:19 pm

    Thanks for this video 👍 👍👍👍

  32. Ali Bashabsheh on July 2, 2020 at 1:19 pm

    Simply the best animation ever for a solar cell operation !

    Can you be one of our patron? https://www.patreon.com/LearnEngineering . I will truly appreciate that.

  34. FEEC OFFICE on July 2, 2020 at 1:21 pm

    i have to understand something about solar power of this 3D view so thanks a lot.

  35. tnt87 1998 on July 2, 2020 at 1:21 pm

    damn lies

  36. Rashedul Islam on July 2, 2020 at 1:21 pm

    I watch some video about (how do multi-junction solar cells work) but i can’t understand…. PLEASE MAKE VIDEO ABOUT IT PLEASE…

  37. K L on July 2, 2020 at 1:22 pm

    Plants were doing this from before.

  38. Gameosapiens World on July 2, 2020 at 1:24 pm

    Thanks for telling this marvelous information i only want to say that if udont understand the pn junction part then see ENGINEERING MINDSET DIODE VIDEO IN THAT VIDEO U WULL GET MORE INFORMATION ABOUT IT..

  39. Pal Ve on July 2, 2020 at 1:25 pm

    IT. IS. LIFESAVER!!! ❤️

  40. Eyex on July 2, 2020 at 1:27 pm

    You can also *run your room on solar* here is my tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf_uIXgefzU

  41. He Huiyang on July 2, 2020 at 1:28 pm

    Good!

  42. Debasish Tewari on July 2, 2020 at 1:31 pm

    After forming of electron and hole pair by sunlight in depletion region they move way from the the barrier..will they not neutralise the barrier field?

  43. Raftaar Singh on July 2, 2020 at 1:32 pm

    Waiting for hindi version

  44. Atul Rathod on July 2, 2020 at 1:33 pm

    Please hindi

  45. enas elshamy on July 2, 2020 at 1:36 pm

    does the light source need to be from the Sun or it doesn’t matter

  46. Pinaki Mandal on July 2, 2020 at 1:36 pm

    Sir I have a doubt. If we take P type layer as a top layer on which light is irradiated then what is the problem in the mechanism? Actually you mentioned that in commercial solar cell N type layer is taken as top layer why? Please help me.

  47. AARJO BANERJEE on July 2, 2020 at 1:38 pm

    Its a diode with photons included

  48. 88SJoe88 on July 2, 2020 at 1:41 pm

    That’s pretty cool.
    "Now lets analyse the structure of the solar panel"
    [Insert diode here]

  49. Marek W. on July 2, 2020 at 1:41 pm

    I still don’t get it 🙁

  50. R.Nugroho Wisnu,ST on July 2, 2020 at 1:42 pm

    nice illustration
