Solar cell performance and efficiency the efficiency of a cell is simply the amount of electrical power coming out of a cell divided by the energy from sunlight coming in the amount of electricity produced from pv cells depends on the quality intensity and wavelengths of the light available and multiple performance characteristics of the cell. The solar cells that you see on calculators and satellites are also called photovoltaic pv cells which as the name implies photo meaning light and voltaic meaning electricity convert sunlight directly into electricity a module is a group of cells connected electrically and packaged into a frame more commonly known as a solar panel which can then be grouped into larger solar . Simply put a solar panel works by allowing photons or particles of light to knock electrons free from atoms generating a flow of electricity solar panels actually comprise many smaller units . Photovoltaic cells convert sunlight into electricity a photovoltaic pv cell commonly called a solar cell is a nonmechanical device that converts sunlight directly into electricity some pv cells can convert artificial light into electricity photons carry solar energy sunlight is composed of photons or particles of solar energy. The conversion efficiency of a photovoltaic pv cell or solar cell is the percentage of the solar energy shining on a pv device that is converted into usable electricity improving this conversion efficiency is a key goal of research and helps make pv technologies cost competitive with conventional sources of energy
