dc.description.abstract In this report an introduction will be given about what a solar cell is and a brief history of how solar cells came to be. Then we will go over the physics and analyze the structure of the solar cell and examine the semiconductor devices used in silicon solar cells. Next the report will go on to talk about silicon solar cells and how it works. The efficiencies of the solar cell will be examined and ways to improve the efficiencies will be brought up in this report. Furthermore, the report will discuss the usage of solar cells being used in photovoltaic systems as photovoltaic modules and arrays. Lastly, the report will discuss the application of photovoltaic systems. en_US
