    Abstract: The paper reports a study on phosphate glasses containing Chromium, Iron and Sodium oxides. The phosphate glasses have been obtained in air by direct melting of Cr2O3, Fe2O3, Na2CO3, and (NH4)2HPO4. The preparation temperature is 1020°C. After annealing at 650°C for 48h, the glasses were partially crystallized and contained β-CrPO4 and Fe3(P2O7)2 c... Show More

    Abstract: A solar module is composed of photons of different energies, and some are absorbed at the p-n junction. A single-diode equivalent model is used to describe the electronic properties of solar cells. The theory as well as the construction and working of photovoltaic cells using single-diode method are also presented. So, choosing a electrical equival... Show More
