The Power of truth that makes the Sun shine..!!
It is the solar that makes the sun shine and wind blow indeed of all things rest upon the truth i.e. the earth….
The Sun with loving light makes bright for us each day… The soul with spirit gives strength to our limbs. To enlarge or illustrate this power and effect of love is to set a candle in the sun. And still after all this time the sun has never said to earth, “You owe me”. And it lights up the sky. On that day it was made, which rise like the sun and burn. What a source of power, “Solar energy”.
Solar is something relating to or determined by the sun. Solar power also knows as solar radiation or insolation is the energy from the sun. This energy, in the form of heat and light, supports all life on Earth, drives the Earth’s climate and weather and is predominately responsible for the class of resources collectively known as renewable energy. Solar energy also broadly describes technologies that utilize sunlight. The applications are diverse and date back millennia.
Nations believes that sun is the important source of energy. And because of that the Greeks, Native Americans and Chinese warmed their buildings by orienting them toward the sun. In Europe, farmers used elaborate field orientation and thermal mass to increase crop yields during the Little Ice Age. This is what happens today also. Modern solar technologies continue to harness the sun to provide water heating, daylighting and even flight.
Solar power generally describes technologies that convert sunlight into electricity and in some cases thermal or mechanical power.
Certain facts are there behind solar. In 1866, the French engineer Auguste Mouchout successfully powered a steam engine with sunlight. This is the first known example of a solar powered mechanical device. Over the next 50 years inventors such as John Ericsson, Charles Tellier and Frank Shuman developed solar powered devices for irrigation, refrigeration and locomotion. The progeny of these early developments are concentrating solar power plants.
The modern age of solar power arrived in 1954 when researchers at Bell Laboratories developed a photovoltaic cell capable of effectively converting light into electricity. This breakthrough marked a fundamental change in how power is generated. Since then solar cells efficiencies have improved from 6% to 15% with experimental cells reaching efficiencies over 40%.
The utilization of solar energy and solar power spans from traditional technologies that provide food, heat and light to electricity which is uniquely modern. The diversity of form and long history of solar energy are manifest in a wide variety of applications.
You might know the fact that many technologies use solar energy. Some classifications of solar technology are active, passive, direct and indirect. Active solar systems use electrical and mechanical components such as tracking mechanisms, pumps and fans to process sunlight into usable outputs such as heating, lighting or electricity. Passive solar systems use non-mechanical techniques of controlling, converting and distributing sunlight into usable outputs such as heating, lighting, cooling or ventilation. These techniques include selecting materials with favorable thermal properties, designing spaces that naturally circulate air, and referencing the position of a building to the sun.
Direct solar generally refers to technologies or effects that involve a single conversion of sunlight which results in a usable form of energy. Indirect solar generally refers to technologies or effects that involve multiple transformations of sunlight which result in a usable form of energy. A solar cell or photovoltaic cell is a device that converts light into electricity using the photovoltaic effect. Until recently, their use has been limited because of high manufacturing costs. One cost effective use has been in very low-power devices such as calculators with LCDs.
Another use has been in remote applications such as roadside emergency telephones, remote sensing, cathode protection of pipe lines, and limited “off grid” home power applications. A third use has been in powering orbiting satellites and spacecraft.
To take advantage of the incoming electromagnetic radiation from the sun, solar panels can be attached to each house or building. The panels should be mounted perpendicular to the arc of the sun to maximize usefulness. The easiest way to use this electricity is by connecting the solar panels to a grid tie inverter. However, these solar panels may also be used to charge batteries or other energy storage device.
Solar panels produce more power during summer because they receive more sunlight. The sun is a huge source of energy which has only recently been tapped into. It provides immense resources which can generate clean, non-polluting and sustainable electricity, thus resulting in no global warming emissions. In recent years, it was discovered that the power of the sun can be collected and stored, to be used on a global scale with the purpose of eventually replacing the conventional sources of energy. As the world is turning its focus to cleaner power, solar energy has seen a significant rise in importance. And thus that we are greatly contributing to the sustainable development of human activities…The Solar Energy….!!
