Course Content

Introduction to PV Wafer
Photovoltaic (PV) wafers are crucial components in solar cell technology. These wafers, often made of silicon, serve as the substrate for solar cells. Through a series of manufacturing processes, PV wafers are transformed into solar cells that convert sunlight into electricity. The quality and efficiency of PV wafers impact the overall performance of solar panels. Ongoing research and advancements in PV wafer technology contribute to the continuous improvement of solar energy harvesting.

  • Wafer Manufacturing Process Flow

Wafer production is a key step in solar manufacturing, involving the slicing of silicon ingots into thin, flat wafers. These wafers serve as the substrate for solar cells, the building blocks of solar panels. During wafer production, precision cutting and polishing processes are employed to ensure uniformity and quality. The wafers undergo further treatments, such as doping and coating, to enhance their ability to convert sunlight into electricity. Efficient wafer production is vital for the overall performance and cost-effectiveness of solar energy systems.

6s Occupational Health, Safety, and Environment (OHSE)
6S in Occupational Health, Safety, and Environment (OHSE) refers to a comprehensive system implemented in solar manufacturing to optimize workplace safety and efficiency. The 6S principles - sort, set in order, shine, standardize, sustain, and safety - guide practices for organizing workspaces, reducing hazards, and ensuring environmental responsibility. This framework focuses on enhancing employee well-being, minimizing waste, and promoting a culture of continuous improvement within the solar manufacturing process.

Workplace Help and Resources
Workplace Help and Resources in manufacturing provide essential support for employees. This includes access to safety manuals, training materials, and emergency contact information. Dedicated help desks or personnel assist with queries and concerns related to the manufacturing process. Resources may include troubleshooting guides and online platforms for continuous learning. Having readily available help enhances efficiency and ensures a well-informed workforce.
