A solar farm, also known as a solar power plant or solar park, is a large-scale installation comprised of numerous solar panels designed to generate electricity from sunlight. These expansive arrays of solar panels are strategically positioned on open land, rooftops, or floating platforms, maximizing exposure to sunlight. The primary objective of a solar farm is to harness solar energy on a utility-scale level, converting it into usable electricity.
A typical solar farm consists of thousands or even millions of photovoltaic (PV) panels, each containing multiple solar cells that convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity. These panels are connected through a complex network of wiring, which routes the generated electricity to inverters. The inverters then convert the DC electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity, which can be easily integrated into the power grid for distribution. Additionally, solar farms may incorporate tracking systems that enable the panels to follow the sun’s movement throughout the day, optimizing energy production.
