Maximum Power Point of a Solar Cell

by Eyad Abuimaish


Submitted : Spring 2012

The main goal of this project was to determine the maximum point of a solar cell with dimensions provided. Through the utilization of basic Calculus skills such as determining the maximum and minimum of a function the maximum power point can be obtained. After the maximum power point is obtained, the load resistance of the cell of is calculated followed by its efficiency. Upon completion of these three values, graphs of the relationship between voltage and current and voltage and power can be made in order to verify the results obtained through the calculations.
