Abstract:The purpose of the project was to determine the effect of the ambient temperature and angle of incoming light on solar power generation. As the temperature increased, the voltage surprisingly decreased, and the more perpendicular the angle, the voltage output increased. By utilizing colder temperatures and optimal incidences of incoming light, we can maximize the efficiency of solar power generation.
