This is the most preferred BOE Preparation Book.
Being a power plant engineer one should read this Book at least once ,This book covers Subjects of Boiler,Turbine,D.M Plant, CHP & Efficiency calculation.
Q. What is renewable energy.
A. This energy is generated from the natural resources .The renewable energy is generally sun, wind, rain, tides, geothermal, biomass .
Working of solar cell- The working principle of a solar cell same as principle of P-N junction silicon diode .The cell consists of a semiconductor device of P-N junction. Silicon is used for solar cell material. Here are generally two junctions of P-N .One is high concentration of holes known as P- type and another is high concentration of electron known as N- type material. Sun light consists of plenty of photons .When the sun light falls on the P-N junction, due to excess of electron in N- type it try to diffuse with holes of P-type where as excess holes from P-type try to diffuse with electron of N-type. Due to exchange of electron and holes across the junction current flows through the junction .The dc EMF are generated with P-terminal is known as positive and N-terminal is known as negative. The EMF generated is depending upon the intensity of sun light. No of cells are connect in series to form a string and several strings are connect in parallel to form a module and several modules are connect in parallel to collect final electricity. The power generation depend on the number of cells connect.
