The role of solar panels

Release time:2021-07-23 Views:24

June 17, 2021 is a proud day for all Chinese. Shenzhou XII spacecraft was successfully launched and docked with our space station and core module. Since then, the three astronauts have started their three-month "space trip".


So, during the "space trip" , where does the electricity come from? 

Let us ceremoniously introduce the power generator for the successful launch of Shenzhou XII and docking with the space station - solar panels. As we know, the electric power system of Shenzhou XII is mainly composed of solar wings and energy storage battery, so that in the irradiated areas, the solar wings can convert solar energy into electricity for the whole cabin. At the same time, in the establishment and operation of the space station, the most important part of the equipment are the solar panels, especially for astronauts to maintain contact with us on earth after getting into the space station. Thus, even if the "space trip" takes as long as three months, there is no need to worry about electricity supply.




How do solar panels work?

Solar panel is a device that directly or indirectly converts solar radiation into electrical energy through photoelectric or photochemical effect when absorbing sunlight.


Solar panels are not only used in military and aerospace fields, but also in industry, commerce, agriculture, communications, household appliances and public utilities. In particular, they can be used in remote areas such as mountains, deserts, islands and rural areas to save cost for expensive transmission lines.

In the future, solar photovoltaic power generation will not only replace part of conventional energy, but also become the main energy supply in the world. Renewable energy is expected to account for more than 30% of the total energy mix by 2030, and solar photovoltaic power generation will account for more than 10% of the world's total electricity supply. By 2040, renewable energy will account for more than 50% of total energy consumption and solar photovoltaic power will account for more than 20% of total electricity. By the end of the 21st century, renewable energy will account for more than 80% of the energy mix, and solar photovoltaic power will account for more than 60%. These figures are sufficient to show the positive prospect of solar photovoltaic industry and its important strategic position in the energy field.
