In this course, students will learn how photovoltaic cells convert solar energy into useable electricity and   the principles behind the potential loss mechanisms in photovoltaic devices. Students will also discover how to tackle potential loss mechanisms in solar cells. By understanding the semiconductor physics and optics involved, in addition to that it will develop in-depth knowledge of how a photovoltaic cell works under different conditions.  

Assessment

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
