In this paper, two developments targeted at reducing the production cost of back-contact modules are presented. The first cost reduction potential is realised by replacing the conductive copper layer with aluminium with a very thin and locally applied copper coating using cold spray technology. This results in a 2% PV module cost saving while...

ECN set up a cross testing project in which suppliers of electrically conductive adhesives (ECA) and conductive back-sheet (CBS) foils participated. In the component part of the project, combinations of adhesive and foil were characterised for peel strength and contact resistance. The separate components were tested on dot geometry (ECA) and...

We report on our high efficiency n-type metal-wrap-through (MWT) cell and module technology. In this work, bifacial n-type MWT cells are produced by industrial processes in industrial full-scale and pilot-scale process equipment. The n-type cells benefit from high recombination lifetime in the wafer and bifaciality. When combined with MWT...

The lifetime of a PV module is critical for PV manufactures, developers and end-users as it directly affects the energy yield and so cost of a PV system. The standards IEC61215, 61646 and 61730 are considered excellent for identification of major design issues, but they do not include sufficient testing to be able to predict outdoor performance...

This paper reports on the progress of R&D in two n-type cell and module concepts: the n-Pasha solar cell and bifacial module, and the n-MWT (metal wrap-through) cell and module. Both are part of ECNs technology platform, acting as a roadmap for research in n-type Cz cells and modules. The technology platform also encompasses low-cost IBC...

Metal wrap-through (MWT) module technology is an attractive approach for increasing module efficiency. This paper shares results of MWT module fabrication using a silicone electrically conductive adhesive (ECA), a conductive backsheet (CBS) power losses are observed, leading to a multicrystalline Si module power of 266 W and a full-area...

We investigate the compatibility of silicone-based electrically conductive adhesives and different surface finishes of the conductive backsheet (CBS) used in MWT module assembly technology. We find that the same ECA can lead to dramatically different properties of the electrical contact depending on the kind of surface finish. On lower cost...

MWT cell and module technology has been shown to result in modules with up to 5% higher power output than H-pattern modules [1]. Back-contact modules allow automated processing and are suitable for use with thin and fragile cells. In this study, the use of a low cost conductive back-sheet with aluminium as the current carrier, in combination...

This paper reviews our recent progress in the development of metal wrap through (MWT) cells and modules, produced from n-type Czochralski silicon wafers. The use of n-type silicon as base material allows for high efficiencies: for front emitter-contacted industrial cells, efficiencies above 20% have been reported. N-type MWT (n-MWT) cells...

A full description of the state-of-the-art PV recycling methods and their rationale is presented, which discusses the quality of the recycled materials and the fate of the substances which end up in the landfill. The aim is to flag the PV module components currently not recycled, which may have a priority in terms of their embedded energy,...

A major issue of concern in MWT solar cells is the increased leakage current at reversed bias voltage through the vias compared. At ECN we have been working on reducing this leakage current to levels comparable to H-pattern cells. In this study we present the results of this work. We further show the benefit of a combined cell and module design...
