4.1 Application in Electrical Engineering

The exhaustion of fossil fuel resources, as well as the environmental impact of their use, necessitates the development of alternative energy resources [1]. Solar energy is one of the most promising substitutes for fossil fuels. Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels are an excellent way to extract the free energy of the sun. The quick implementation of solar energy by the residential and industrial sectors makes it an important source to investigate [2]. Extensive research has been conducted and continues to be conducted in order to improve the power output of PV panels [3,4]. Despite the fact that it has quite low operational ...
