Role of Hetrocyclic Dye (Azur B) with Reductant and Surfactant in Photogalvanic Cell for Solar Energy Conversion and Storage
Pages : 1686-1690
Studies of hetrocyclic dye (Azur B) with reductant and surfactant in photogalvanic cell containing Azur B-EDTA- CTAB cell for solar energy conversion and storage. The photopotential and photocurrent of the cell is observed 795.0 mV and 395.0 μA respectively. The conversion efficiency and fill factor of the cell are determined 1.004 % and 0.2556 respectively. The storage capacity (performance) of the cell is observed 140.0 minutes in dark. The effects of different parameters on the electrical output of the cell are observed and current-voltage (i-V) characteristics of the cell are also studied. The proposed mechanism for the generation of photocurrent in photogalvanic cell is also explained here.
Keywords: conversion efficiency, fill factor, storage capacity.
