The amount of sunlight that reaches the surface of the earth in an hour is sufficient to meet all of the world’s energy needs for a complete year.
Solar energy systems use photovoltaic (PV) panels to convert sunlight into electrical energy. This power can be transformed into electricity and used in the aircraft industry.
Solar energy via photovoltaic panels was recognized as an alternate energy source during the 1970s fuel crisis. Due to their use as an ecologically beneficial option, solar-powered aircraft have recently gained the general public’s and aviation industry’s interest. Unlike conventional aircraft, solar-powered aircraft use photovoltaic panels to collect solar irradiance and convert it into electrical energy.
