Question 1:

In figure 5 the maximum power of a solar cell is given. Which physical size does have an influence?


Of course, the light intensity has an influence on the maximum power of a solar cell. 



Question 2:

What is the maximum power you could get out of the solar cell?


Please see figure 6. The power maximum at the given light conditions is about 19.5mW.



Question 3:

How is the function called to keep the output Power at the maximum level?  (Tip see ADP5091)


MPPT – Maximum power point tracking

This function ensures you are getting always the maximum possible power out of a solar cell. The maximum power might be different based on the light conditions - MPPT ensures it will be always at the maximum possible.
