Experiment Overview

This experiment investigates the characteristics of solar panels as a non-linear source of electrical energy. The experiment also investigates the conditions under which solar panels give maximum power for a given amount of light shining on it.

The aims of the experiment are to expose students to non-linear circuits and develop their familiarity and skills in circuits, data collection, representation and analysis. This experiment is an effective learning tool because it is relevant to contemporary energy source concerns.
