It’s a common misconception that the solar panels generate more energy with higher temperatures and less energy with lower temperatures. So the assumption is that we have more power generated in places like Chennai than in Bangalore or for that matter in Himachal Pradesh. But in reality,   solar cells, like in all semiconductors  are [...]

The image shows India's first (19.04.1975) experimental indigenous satellite, covered in solar panels. A set of solar panels like this is called an array. Each solar panel has several solar modules and each solar module has many solar cells connected in series. If you connect two voltage sources in series, they behave like a single voltage [...]
