Example text

12). It is this diode that establishes a photovoltage enabling the photocurrent through the load. When illuminated, the solar cell produces a photocurrent proportional to the light intensity. This photocurrent is divided by the load and the diode, in a ratio that depends on the light intensity and on the load resistance. In real cells, power is dissipated through the contact resistance and through leakage currents around the sides of the device. 13. 12 The solar cell is equivalent to a current generator in parallel to a resistive diode.

1) Dominique Campana, a graduate student in Paris in the 1970s, came up with the idea of applying solar water pumping. French physicist Jean Roger translated her concept into a working prototype on the island of Corsica. After viewing the Corsican installation, Verspieren, starting in the late 1970s, initiated a solar water pumping program that has become the template for success in the developing world. 5 million households in developing countries were receiving electricity from solar home systems [12].
