A Photovoltaic(PV) module which is generally termed as a solar panel is an assembly of photovoltaic cells electrically connected to each other and mounted on a laminated frame. The solar cells are primarily made up of silicon material which absorbs the photons emitted by the sun.
There are three major types of PV modules.
Each solar PV module type has its own unique features. These PV modules also vary based on how they are manufactured, their appearance, performance, costs, etc.
