Introduction: Using Diode As a Solar Cell
Here presented is my experiment on working of diode as a solar cell. If we keep diode in sunlight or in the source of light, it will generate volts.
Read the instructable to know how to do this thing.
Step 1: Diodes
Diodes are like valves of water. The allow to flow the current in only one direction and that is from positive to negative.
This is because they have a depletion layer made when the current tries to flow from negative to positive.
But, How they can Generate Electricity?
Step 2: Connection
Connect the positive terminal of the diode to the negative terminal of Multi meter.
And connect the negative terminal of diode to positive terminal of Multi meter.
Step 3: Boom
Now, keep the Diode in full light and you will see that in multi meter shows the voltage.
Here are some markings in the multi meter.
Step 4: For Getting Max Voltage
For getting maximum voltage, you should keep them in series.
Step 5: For Getting Max Current
For getting maximum current you should keep them parallel connection.
