|Abstract: ||In this study, an attempt was made to investigate the
wavelengths of light and its effects on the performance of solar
photovoltaic module. A case study was conducted to
experimentally verify the effect of various colour filters
(polythene) on the performance of solar photovoltaic module.
Based on the temperature of the cell, solar irradiance and
photonic theory, the efficiency and power output of the PV
system have been evaluated. An analytical model based on
physical parameters was also developed to evaluate the
efficiency of solar panel. The results show that the Present day
PV technology is influenced by the red color of light. In other
words, visible portion of the solar spectrum influences the
performance of the solar panel then the infra-red light.|
