New Perovskite Solar Module Study: Greater Size and Better Stability

A group of researchers from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology created perovskite solar panels that maintained high efficiencies for over 1000 hours. The dimensions of the modules were 5×5 sq. cm. and 10×10 sq.cm., sizes which are much larger than the ones traditionally made in laboratories (1.5×1.5 sq. cm.). Although these solar panels …

Calculate Solar Panel Efficiency with the Simplest Method

To calculate the solar panel efficiency, you need to divide the Wattage per unit area (Pmax/total area in sq.m.) of the solar module by the STC Irradiance value (1000W/sq.m.). This is the simplest way to get any solar PV module’s efficiency. Solar Panel Efficiency Formula Efficiency (%) = (Pmax ÷ Area) ÷ (1000) x 100% where, …
