A novel theory of acoustics in solar energy supporting the principle of source and sink of solar energy is presented. The significance of the theory is in ascertaining the aftermaths of turning off solar energy. An amplifier constituting of a parallel plate photovoltaic device connected to a potentiometer is illustrated. It was constructed with a pair of glass coated photovoltaic modules and polystyrene filled plywood board as back panel with air ventilation through a parallel plate channel of amplifier. The sample results obtained from experiments and simulation model are presented to support hypothesis of acoustics for a parallel plate photovoltaic device connected to a potentiometer. A phenomenon of photovoltaic amplification is formulated.

The solar energy is radiated from the sun and the earthatmosphere system absorbs a portion of its incident energy. In addition to the energy received from the sun, the surface of the earth is warmed by a heat flux from its interior that results, primarily, from the decay of radioactive isotopes. The tides, which are a consequence of the earth-moon system, result in viscous friction, another energy input that affects the surface energy balance. To the extent that the earth is not changing, the heat radiated by the surface of the earth is equal to the sum of the heat inputs.

The solar energy is absorbed by planet earth and its surrounding environment viz., earth surface, earth atmosphere, forests, farms, rivers, ponds, lakes & seas, living beings and civil structures (e.g. buildings, green houses, thermal power plants, collectors, panels, roads, bridges, ports, canals) [

The earth’s land surface, oceans, and atmosphere absorb solar radiation and this raises their temperature. The earth and its earth-moon system is the sink of the solar energy. Incident solar energy is the dominant energy input. The radiation absorbed by the earth depends upon the earth’s cross-sectional area perpendicular to the sun’s flux. The earth is behaving as a black body radiator. The radiative temperature of the earth-atmosphere system determines the actual power radiated by the earth.

The amplitude of a solar energy wave is defined as the power storage per unit area per unit time. The solar power is stored in a packet of solar energy wave of unit cross sectional area and of length s, the speed of light. Therefore, the solar power intensity I is the product of total power storage capacity for a packet of solar energy wave and the speed of light. The logarithm of two solar power intensities, I_{1} and I_{2}, gives power difference for two solar power intensities. It is mathematically expressed as [

where, Sol is a dimensionless logarithmic solar noise unit. Mathematically, decisol is more convenient for solar power systems. Since a decisol is unit of a Sol, it is mathematically expressed by the equation:

The above concepts of acoustics in solar energy are similar to the theory of sound [

The full scale experimental setup for a parallel plate photovoltaic device connected to a potentiometer was installed in an outdoor room facility [

The temperatures were measured as a function of volume of a parallel plate photovoltaic device. The nonlinear thermal results include measurements of temperatures for PV modules, insulating panel and ventilated air column in the wooden frame. The air velocities were developed in the ventilated air column for transportation of heat both as a measure of buoyancy and fan induced hybrid ventilation. The thermal measurement results of temperatures of various components of PV device, ambient air and room air temperatures, air velocities and solar intensities are presented in Tables 1 and 2.

The results of the power output from a potentiometer with rotation of circular knob are illustrated in

A simulation model for prediction of temperature distributions varying with volume of a parallel plate photovoltaic device was developed. The model has been used to predict temperature distributions at pre-defined locations in PV module, plywood board and air flowing through a parallel plate channel. The results of the temperature plots are illustrated from

The phenomenon of photovoltaic amplification is observed from the graphs of Figures 2 and 3. The gain in steady state electrical and thermal functions for a photovoltaic device is a factor of its volume or resistance. This operational characteristic is similar to operation of a loudspeaker. The electrical analog has been used to describe the resonance phenomenon for equivalent mechanical, hydraulic and thermal systems of parallel plate photovoltaic device connected to a potentiometer.

For the case of series resonance, the equilibrium frequency is written as [

The frequency is called the resonant frequency. Its value is a function of two energy storing elements of the

system. At resonance the impedance of the circuit is a minimum, and is equal to R. Consequently, when a series L-C-R circuit is at resonance, the current is a maximum and is also in time phase with the voltage. The power factor is unity. For operation at a frequency below the resultant imaginary part of impedance is capacitive so that the current leads the voltage. When, the inductive reactance prevails, so that the current then lags the voltage. When the ratio of inductive reactance to resistance in a series L-C-R circuit is high, a very rapid rise of current to the maximum value occurs in the vicinity of the resonant frequency.

The procedure as described in is used herewith for determining bandwidth at resonance. The bandwidth is defined as the range of frequency for which the power delivered to R is greater than or equal to, where P_{R} is the power delivered to R at resonance. As the magnitude of the current at each half-power point during resonance is same, we can write:

where, subscript 1 denotes the lower half-power point and subscript 2 the higher half-power point. The expressions for i_{1} and i_{2} are then written as:

The bandwidth is defined during resonance as that range of frequency over which the magnitude of the current is equal to or greater than 0.707 of the current at resonance. For, the frequency at the lower half-power point is denoted by w_{1} and that of the upper half power point is denoted by w_{2}. Hence the bandwidth is w_{2} − w_{1}. Since the current at the half-power points is, it follows that the magnitude of the impedance must be equal to to yield this current. The reactance during resonance is at the lower half-power frequency X_{1}, is then written as:

The minus sign appears on the right side of the equation because below resonance the capacitive reactance exceeds the inductive reactance. Rearranging Equation (6), leads to:

The expressions for positive upper half-power and lower half-power frequency are written as:

Therefore the expression for the bandwidth becomes, from Equations (8) and (9),

By forming the ratio of the resonant frequency to the bandwidth, a quality factor to measure the selectivity or sharpness of tuning of the series RLC circuit is obtained:

When Equation (10) is inserted into Equation (11):

By making use of the knowledge that is very large in many resonant circuits and systems, the lower and upper half-power points are expressed in terms of the resonant frequency and the bandwidth.

The Equation (8) is re-written as:

For values of which are 5 or greater very little error is made by writing:

Inserting Equation (10) into Equation (14) yields:

Similarly, expression for w_{2} is written as:

The definition of quality factor is also expressed in terms of power storage. The instantaneous expression for the forced solution of current at resonance is:

The total power stored by the circuit in both L and C is expressed as:

Inserting the appropriate expressions for and results in:

where, is maxima and is the rms value of current at resonance. The energy stored at resonance is a constant quantity. From Equation (12), the expression for is written as [

It is written in terms of stored energy and dissipated energy as:

It is applicable to any resonant system regardless of its composition.

For the parallel case, the equation for lower half power frequency w_{1} is written as:

The quadratic equation is written as:

Ignoring the negative solution, the desired solution is:

The expression for the upper half-power frequency is:

The expression for the bandwidth is:

The expression for quality factor is written as:

The incident short wavelength electromagnetic waves on a parallel plate photovoltaic device cause development of stresses and oscillations and results in propagation of following composite waves [

A theory of acoustics in solar energy supporting the principle of source and sink of solar energy is presented. The speed of doing work on earth planet is directly proportional to gravitational forces (including wind and tide pressure). The gravitational forces (including wind and tide pressure) are function of solar intensity. The measurements and modelling results are presented for a parallel plate photovoltaic device connected to a potentiometer. A phenomenon of photovoltaic amplification has been formulated similar to resonance conditions applicable to the theory of sound. The resonance conditions are presented for series and parallel cases of L-C-R connected elements. The maximum energy transfer can occur during resonance with transmission of light, sound, noise, heat, electricity, fluid and fire from a parallel plate photovoltaic device connected to a potentiometer. The expressions for bandwidths and quality factors during occurrence of resonance at maximum energy transfer are presented. Some of the aftermaths of turning off solar energy are: 1) cooling of Earth planet; 2) gradual reducetions of gravity, wind pressure and tide pressure; 3) trapping of hydrogen fuel from ice and breaking of common salt because of split in chemical bonds; 4) transformation of an exponential function into a linear function; 5) noise behaviour of public (chaos, darkness, accidents due to zero jet lag, echoes, distorted vision of three-dimensional objects, sexual and erectile dysfunction and abnormal births of infants during post pregnancy).
