How many different types do solar panels have?

· About Solar Panels

There are several solar panels that serve different requirements and purposes. Types of solar panels best suited for the installation that will depend upon the property and the desired characteristics of systems. Some of the types are further discussed below:

It is defined as an oldest and developed of all technologies that name suggests from single continuous crystal structure. This panel can be analyzed from solar cells that will appear as a single flat color. Silicon’s high purity causes mono crystalline solar panel has highest efficiency rates with the above 20%. It has more power yield, inhabit low space as well as last the greatest. The main advantage of this solar panel is to consider that they lean to be considerably less exaggerated by elevated temperatures in comparison of other panels. Whereas the major disadvantage of this solar panel is that it is requires huge cost for installation and construction. Crystal format of this panel is manufacturing steady blue color with no gain marks so that it produces pure and highest level of efficiency.

It is made by the pouring molten silicon in a cast and because of the construction method of this panel system, crystal structure will not form perfect and making boundaries where the formation of crystal breaks. It provides smooth appearance, distinctive and gemstone pattern which highlight boundaries in the crystal format. Due to the impurities in crystal, the poly-crystalline silicon is termed as less efficient while comparing with mono-crystalline. It needs low energy and materials so that it provides the cost advantage over other silicon. But it has disadvantage also as it is less efficient in their performance as compared to mono crystalline module.

At present, most of the mainstream products in the industry have used PERC technology. PERC PV module production line has become almost a must for mainstream module manufacturers, and its market share has increased significantly.

Thin-film solar panels

Thin-film panels are characterized by very fine layers that are thin enough to be flexible. Each panel does not require a frame backing, making them lighter and easier to install. Unlike crystalline silicon panels that come in standardized sizes of 60, 72, and 96-cell counts, thin-film panels can come in different sizes to suit specific needs. However, they are less efficient than typical silicon solar panels.The efficiency of the Thin-Film system varies depending on the type of PV material used in the cells but in general they tend to have efficiencies around 7% and up to 18%.

Thin film solar panels can usually be made from different materials. There are three common types:

1.Amorphous Silicon (a-si) films: These films are made of amorphous silicon and are easier to produce than single crystal or polycrystalline solar panels.

2.Cadmium Telluride film: This type of solar panel is made of a special compound called cadmium telluride, which has strong light absorption

3.Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) solar panels are made by stacking layers of copper, gallium and selenide on top of each other to form a powerful semiconductor.


The so-called "perovskite" in the field of photovoltaic refers to a class of "ABX3" compounds similar to the crystal structure of perovskite (CaTiO3), which is a general term for materials with a specific structure. Perovskite-type oxides are widely used in solid oxide fuel cells, metal-air cells, solar cell catalysts and magnetic cooling materials due to their diverse physical properties.
