This research aimed to investigate the effectiveness and performance of standalone photovoltaic systems of the half-cell and full-cell types. In Phetchabun province, it requires 8 hours of sunlight per day between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M.. Open circuit voltage, short circuit current, DC, and AC power are continually recorded for 62 days in July and August 2020. According to the results of the solar panel efficiency test, the full and haft cell solar panels' actual efficiencies are 89.13 and 89.04% of the manufacturer's maximum power, respectively. The power generating efficiency of full-cell and half-cell types of panels was considerably different at 95% confidence. The power of 307.5 and 307.9 W for full and half-cell solar panels. By using two 345 W solar panels connected in parallel, it can produce an average voltage and current of 25.40 V and 21.62 Ah respectively, and when charged to a 100 Ah 24 V battery for 8 hours it can use electrical appliances including 350, 450, 550, and 650 W.
