Humidity Impact on Photovoltaic Cells Performance

Solar cell, also called photovoltaic cell, any device that directly converts the energy of light into electrical energy through the photovoltaic effect. The overwhelming majority of solar cells are fabricated from silicon—with increasing efficiency and lowering cost as the materials range from amorphous (noncrystalline) to polycrystalline to crystalline (single crystal) silicon forms. Unlike batteries or fuel cells, solar cells do not utilize chemical reactions or require fuel to produce electric power, and, unlike electric generators, they do not have any moving parts.

Photovoltaic cells today have spread widely around the world and have begun to be popularly accepted and their stations have increased dramatically. The electricity provided by solar cells has become a significant part of the world’s generated electricity. Because they are located outdoors, they are exposed to all weather variables such as air temperature, solar radiation, wind, dust and pollutants, as well as relative humidity. In this study, many previous published studies were reviewed which focused on the effect of relative humidity with the rest of the weather variables on the performance of the solar cell. Inhalation of moisture into the cell causes its parts to eat yellowish and corrode metal connections, and result in reduced cell life and productivity. Studies have shown that cell work in high air temperature and high humidity conditions causes a significant reduction in cell efficiency. High relative humidity also has negative effects on solar radiation and reduces cell performance.

To ensure high performance and provide steady humidity, it is a good choice to put photovoltaic cells in YUNBOSHI drying cabinets. As a researcher and manufacturer of dehumidifiers, YUNBOSHI provides humidifier-proof solutions for many different industrial applications.
