Definitions

Accumulator
Installation element capable of storing electrical energy, transforming it into chemical energy. It consists of several batteries connected together in series or parallel.
Active solar power
Active solar energy is characterized by using mechanical or electrical equipment to improve performance. Active solar energy is characterized by using mechanical or electrical equipment to improve performance.
Adiabatic wall
An adiabatic wall is a wall that does not allow heat transfer from side to side. It does not allow the transfer of thermal energy from one side to another.

Alternating current
The alternating current (AC) is a type of electrical current that is characterized by change over time, either in intensity or direction at regular intervals.

Ampere-hour
Unit used for specifying the capacity of a battery; the amount of electricity that can be stored during the loading and return during unloading.
An open circuit voltage
Is the measured potential difference between two ends of a electrical circuit when it is open and no load.
Balance of system
It represents the components of a photovoltaic solar system except for photovoltaic modules.
Blocking diode
Diode which prevents reverse current in a circuit. Normally it is used to prevent discharge of the battery.
Building integration (BIPV)
Term that refers to the design and integrated photovoltaic development of buildings, typically replacing the materials conventionally used in buildings.
Charge controller
Component of a solar photovoltaic installation to control the state of charge and discharge of the battery.
Charging regulator
It is synonymous with charge controller. Its function is to control and manage battery charging from a solar photovoltaic installation.
Concentrator
Device by different systems, concentrates solar radiation on photovoltaic cells.
Connected to network system
 Photovoltaic system that acts as a generating plant electricity, supplying power to the grid.
Counter
A major counter measures the energy produced (kWh) and sent to the network, you can be billed to the company to authorized prices. A small secondary counter measures photovoltaic equipment consumption (kWh) to discount the energy produced.
DC converter - Continuous
 element of the installation charge of adapting the voltage supplying the PV generator to the voltage required by the equipment for operation.
Direct current
The current (I tam'be expressed its acronym CC) is a type of electrical current where the flow direction of the flow of electric charges (electrons) remains unchanged. The current (I tam'be expressed its acronym CC) is a type of electrical current where the flow direction of the flow of electric charges (electrons) remains unchanged.
Efficiency
In regard to solar cells is the percentage of solar energy that is converted into electrical energy by the cell. Depending on the technology and technical production, it varies between 5% and 30%.
Electricity
Electricity is the form of energy that produces light effects, mechanical, calorific, chemical, etc., and that is due to the separation or movement of the electrons that make up the atoms.

Electrolyte
 For batteries used in photovoltaic systems is a dilute solution of sulfuric acid in which the various processes that allow charging and discharging of the battery are checked.
Enthalpy
Enthalpy is a physical quantity in the field of thermodynamics that measures the maximum energy of a thermodynamic system theoretically capable of being eliminated from it in the form of heat.
