Electrotechnology for Silicon Refining: Plasma Generator and Arc Furnace: Installations and Theoretical Base
The photovoltaic and the semiconductor industries are
in growth and it is necessary to supply a large amount of silicon to
maintain this growth. Since silicon is still the best material for the
manufacturing of solar cells and semiconductor components so the
pure silicon like solar grade and semiconductor grade materials are
demanded. There are two main routes for silicon production:
metallurgical and chemical. In this article, we reviewed the
electrotecnological installations and systems for semiconductor
manufacturing. The main task is to design the installation which can
produce SOG Silicon from river sand by one work unit.
