Effect of Different Environmental Factors on Performance of Solar Panel

Solar power is future of our planet due to the depletion of non-renewable sources of energy. The renewable sources of energy are responsible for 80% of world's power and we all are directly dependent on non-renewable source which will only last for 1 or 2 decades. Due to increase in power demands new development in renewable sources of energy are going on due to which on commercial level solar cell achieved an efficiency of 15-20% and improving day by day. Some factors affects the performance

These factors includes temperature of solar panel, humidity, and wind velocity, light intensity, altitude and air pressure along with many other factors. In this paper these factors are discussed along with their impact on solar cell performance
