REaCTOR: Photovoltaics


Photovoltaic is an Open Educational Resource created by FusedWorks - http://www.fusedworks.com team from Doncaster College - http://www.don.ac.uk. Within the JISC - http://www.jisc.ac.uk/ - funded project ‘Renewable, Environmental and Construction Technology Open Resource – REaCTOR, this application has been created alongside 7 others:

* Renewable comparison

* Solar thermal

* Heat pumps

* Rainwater harvesting

* Greywater re-use

* Biomass

* Wind energy

The resources are available on stand-alone platforms and on mobile devices. Each resource is free to use and can be used as teaching and learning support material.


The Photovoltaic resource introduces solar panels as an energy-generating technology within a domestic setting. The resource examines how electricity is produced from sunlight, looks at the structure of solar panels, how they are integrated into a domestic electrical system, how they are physically installed, and some of the issues surrounding the technology. The factors affecting electrical generation, such different weather conditions, are shown, as are the concepts of importing and exporting electricity to the grid. The application is fully-interactive and incorporates both 2D and 3D elements.


Resource based on reference materials gathered in co-operation with educational and commercial sectors in UK (National Skills Academy Environmental Technologies, EU Skills, HE Academy Discipline Lead, Leeds College of Building and many others).

User manual for the application is available at the project website under the section "Resources".
