The figure illustrates the way solar energy can be used as a source of household energy. There are 5 components in this system, including Solar Panel, Inverter, Electrical Pane, Utility Meter and Utility Grid.
The heart of the system is Solar Panel, an outdoor part in which the energy from sun light is captured and transformed to the Direct Current or (DC) form of electricity.
As the main form of electricity in domestic use is Alternative Current or (AC) the Inverter Unit is used to change the DC to AC. The final part of the system is the Electrical Panel which act as a hub to distribute household electricity for different purposes.
As both production and consumption of energy are not fixed entities during the time, the Utility Meter is used to provide a steady amount of energy for consumption, by compensating the shortage from and sending of the surplus to the Utility Grid.

The diagram describes the process of generating electricity for domestic use from solar panels. There are 5 components involved in this process, namely solar panels, inverter, electrical panel, utility meter and utility grid.

Firstly, the solar panel, which is situated outdoor, takes the energy emitted by the sun and transforms it into DC current. This is then turned into AC current by an inverter, which it also controls the electricity and production. The last component involved in the process of supplying electricity people need for domestic use is the electrical panel. This is responsible for the distribution of electricity into our house.

To make sure there is now waste of electricity, the utility meter is used to send back any energy surplus to the system through the meter. Furthermore, we can’t always rely on the energy received from the sun, and so, to cover the risk of remaining with no electricity, we can then use the utility grid. This is a second option to provide electricity when the one generated by sun is consumed.

The graph describes the production of electricity for domestic use by solar panels.
As according the diagram, five are the stages to produce energy by the sun.
To begin with, the solar panels, which are located on the roof of the home, have the function to absorb the rays of sunshine and convert them into DC current.
Once the energy has been produced, the inverter, collocated on the side of the home, transforms DC current into AC current and at the same time controls the electricity and production.
In the third stage, the electrical panel, sets next to the inverter, gives the electricity to all the home. Then, the Utility Meter controls that the solar energy produced, but not utilized , flows back to the grid through the meter.
Finally, the utility grid, furnishes electricity when who lives in the home needs more energy than the amount produced by solar panels.

the last line the meaning was not very clear

could anyone check my answer and if possible give any comments... what to improve.. this is my first time to post a sample answer..

The flow chart shows how the solar panels supply electricity for people's consumption.

It is clear that there are five distinct steps in the process, from solar energy absorption to the supplement of electricity to each residents.

At the first stage, the panels absorb energy directly from the sun and convert it to DC current then the inverter both changed the current from DC to AC and controls the electricity production, which is the second stage. The third stage is the distribution of power to each residentials, called Electrical panel.

The fourth and fifth stage are the stages for excess and inadequacy of electricity supply respectively. It the electricity is beyond the demand, it will flow back to the grid through the meter. By contrast, the grid will provide electricity once the solar panels produced an adequate energy.

QUESTION: The diagram below shows how solar panels can be used to provide electricity for domestic use.


MY WORK:

The flow chart presents the process of generating electricity by solar panels for civil use. There are five major stages, from the initial energy absorbing to the final supply of electricity to every single home.

At the first stage, when sun rays reach solar panels, which are usually set up on the roof of a house directing towards the sun, solar energies are absorbed and transferred into DC current. It is then turned into AC currents by the inverter in the second stage, whose major function is to control the electricity and production. Next, the current flows into the electrical panel, ready to be distributed to plenty of residence.

Stage four and five all involve utility. If there is a surplus of electricity, it would flow back finally to the grid, the amount of which is measured by a meter. And utility grid is used to provide alternative electricity in case that the supply from solar panels is exhausted.

P.S. I stole the main structure and some good vocabularies from Simon's work here: http://ielts-simon.com/ielts-help-and-english-pr/2013/10/ielts-writing-task-1-flow-chart-essay.html

The diagram illustrates the process of generating electricity by solar panel for domestic purposes. We can clearly see that the process consists of five distinct steps involving five different components.
At first rays of sunshine fall vertically on the solar panel which is placed on the rooftop. Then the rays are converted into Direct Current. As the current is still not usable that’s why the energy is sent to the inverter for conversion. After the process of conversion by the inverter from DC to AC, the energy becomes usable to run domestic appliances.
But merely producing electricity is not the ultimate task; the entire system demands a control to maintain the flow of electricity properly. This is accomplished by the electric panel which ensures the supply of electricity in a controlled way.
There are two more components in the system namely utility metre and utility grid. The Utility metre ensures that if there is any surplus energy then it will transmit it to the grid to avoid hazards and mishaps. On the other hand, if the electricity produced by the solar panel drops then the utility grid will provide the system with adequate amount of electricity to meet the deficiency.

Utility grid takes the function of making up the need of electricity used by residents and storing excess electricity amount via Utility Meter.

hi fettes
1. in your second P why you used solar energies? I think its solar energy is absorbed.
2. why you used AC currents. I think its AC current.

Hi Hibba:

Thank you for your feedbacks.

1. Do you mean that the term 'solar energies' is misused? I checked the word 'energy' and found that when it refers to power from sources such as electricity and coal, it is uncountable for sure. My mistake.
2. 'AC currents' is also a spelling mistake, and I am sorry for that.

Hi,

Can anyone check my writing and give me some advice to improve?

The diagram illustrates the main steps and equipment used in the process of creating solar electricity for domestic utilization. Overall, the process involves the making of electricity using solar panels and how it is used.

Looking at the chart, to begin with, the energy from the sun is absorbed by the solar panels, which is placed on the roof of a house, in order to make DC current. Next, the current is transferred to the inverter, which converts it into AC current and controls the electricity and production.

Afterwards, the electricity is sent to the electrical panel so as to supply the house with the energy for home use. Finally, if there is any excess solar electricity, it will be transferred back to the grid by the utility meter. Otherwise, additional electricity will be distributed to the house by the utility grid if the usage exceeds the production of the energy.

Please rate me. Here is my take on this task.

The diagram illustrates the process on the usage of solar panels in the house. Overall, there are 5 utilities that are involve in the process.

To begin with, solar panels in the rooftop absorb energy from the sun and change it into DC current. The DC current changes into AC current via inverter. The inverter monitors the activity of electricity in the house. Then, the current passes through the electrical panels. The role of electtrical panel is to to spread the electricity around the house for usage. Lastly, an excessive amount of electricity flows through the utility meter and returns back to the utility grid. This allows the transfer of electricity for household usage when the solar panels produce an excess of amount of electricity.

All in all, the 5 utilities that are involve in the process on the usage of household solar panels are solar panels, inverter, electrical panel, utility meter and utility grid.

you are welcome Fettes

I would appreciate if anybody could check my mistakes.

The diagram illustrates the process of production of electricity for domestic use with the help of solar panels. It consists of 5 main resources i.e. Solar panels, inventor,electrical panel, utility meter ans lastly utility grid.

Firstly we begin with solar panel which are placed on rooftop of house, with the maximum exposure to sunlight. Due to which these panels will absorb maximum solar energy and then convert it into DC current. As Ac current is used in our household. So inverter is directly connected to solar panel which convert DC into AC current, further it controls the electricity and it's production.

After the production, electricity is distributed in the house with the help of electrical panels. And the excess of solar electricity will flow back to the grid with the help of utility meter. At last utility grid provide the excess solar electrical energy when we exceed the amount produced by solar panels.

The flow chart illustrates how solar power generates electricity in houses. It is clear that there are five distinct stages in this process, from the initial absorption of solar energy to the household electricity usage.

At the first stage, the solar panels which are placed on the rooftop, absorbs energy from the sun and turns it into DC current. Secondly, the DC currents converts into AC current in the Inverter, which controls the electricity and its production. Next, the electricity is channeled to the Electrical Panel wherein the electricity in being distributed to the homes.

Stages four and five in the process both are involved in the utilization of electricity. The utility meter is responsible to flow back to the grid via the meter of any excess solar electricity. Following this, the utility grid will provides electricity when the amount of solar panels have exceed.

The process diagram shows how the domestic electricity needs can be fulfilled from Solar energy.

There are 5 components involved in converting solar energy for domestic use, These are Solar Panels, Inverter, Electric Panel, Utility Meter & Utility Grid.

Solar Panels are planed on top of the house or strcuture on outer side, so that to face the SUN maximum time of the day. Solar Panels absorbs the solar energy from solar rays & transfer the current to the Inveter. Since the current is in DC format, an Inverter is used to convert the current from DC to AC. The AC current is fed to the Electric Panel, which distributes the electricity to the household usage.

There can always be excess or shortage of electricity as per household demands. Any excess solar electricity is flown back to the grid through Electric Meter. If there is a shortage of solar electricity, the energy can be provided from the Utility Grid.

The figure illustrates the process used by solar panels to produce domestic use electricity. There are five components needed to complete the process, including solar panels, inverter, electrical panel, utility meter and utility grid.

Looking at the first three stages of the process, they are all about how to convert sunshine to electricity. Firstly, solar panels installed on the roof absorb energy from the sun and turn it into DC current. Secondly, inverter will convert DC current generated by solar panels into AC current and it controls the electricity and production as well. Thirdly, electrical panel distributes electricity produced to houses.

Fourth and fifth stages are about control utility. Utility meter ensures that any excess solar electricity will flow back to the grid through the meter. Utility grid provides electricity when usage exceeds the amount produced by solar panels.

The figure demonstrates the way that solar energy can be applied to supply electricity as a source of household energy.The system is made up of five components, including Solar Panels, Inventor, Electrical Panel, Utility Meter and Utility Grid.
The main parts of the system is Solar Panels, which can absorb sunlight and convert solar energy into electric energy in the form of DC current. Once the solar energy has been transformed into DC current, Inventor, controlling and producing the electricity, plays a role to convert DC current into AC current.After that, the produced electricity can be distributed to houses by means of Electrical Panel.
Since both the production and consumption of energy can not keep in a steady condition due to the uncertain supplement of sunlight, Utility Meter is used to provide a regular amount of energy. In case of the insufficient self-produced energy, Utility Grid can provide electricity immediately by compensating the shortage.

The diagram shows the process of electricity, that provides to the domestic use, is generated by the solar panels.
First, solar panels are put on the roof of house or a place that an energy is absorbed from sun and this energy turns into DC current. Next, Inverter plays an important role to convert DC current into AC current. It also controls the electricity and production. Then, the electrical panel distributes the electricity to your home or company.
At the follow stage, utility meter is an instrument to measure the electricity. The solar electricity will flow back to the grid though the meter, if an amount of the electricity is more than acceptable. Finally, utility grid provides electricity when you exceed the amount produced by your solar panels.

The diagram provide the clear overview of the stages involved in the functioning of a solar panel and equipment involved to produce electricity for the domastic use.

First of all, sunlight is observed by solar panel located in the roof top, was turn to DC current. Subsequently, solar panel send DC current to the inverter to convert form of energy into AC current, where electricity and production is controlled.
Secondly, electricity panel distribute the electricity for uses, once the inverter supplied the AC current. Next, Utility meter plays vital role to save the power by flow back the over supplied energy to the grid by using the required quantity of electricity. Finally, the utility grid furnished the available stored energy once the electricity produced by solar panel has finished.
To sum up, Solar power is converted to AC current through DC Phase, is monitered and distributed for the domestic uses through the 5 different stages.

Hi Simon.

Could you kindly comment on my work.

The diagram illustrates the process of how can solar panels be utilized for household electricity.

Overall, it can be observed that there are five ways to produce electricity from the heat of the sun. Solar panels are utilized to absorb energy then it goes through the inverter for convertion. Electricity is distributed through the panel for household consumption.

First of all, the energy coming from the sun is absorbed by the solar panels on the rooftop. The inverter converts the DC current to AC current for electrical production. Next, the electrical panel distributes the electricity inside the house.

If there is an excess solar electricity, a utility meter will serve as a storage box to store the current. A utility grid, which is located outside the house, will send a signal to the meter in order to provide the stored electricity for the household consumption.
