Foil-based back contact module interconnection technology (FBC) is a versatile solution for high-performance all back contact modules. We exploit the advantages of FBC to make full size modules replacing Cu with lower cost Al. Characterization shows that these modules have excellent electrical performance and reliability. The pick and place...

Back contact cells architectures, especially Interdigitated Back Contact (IBC), offer the potential for the highest efficiencies, best aesthetics, and application flexibility. Foil-based back contact module interconnect for these architectures has been shown to be a high throughput, industrially viable, and reliable solution for both IBC and...

PV applications run from field installations, to building added PV to PV integrated into building, infrastructure and landscapes. Specifically, applications of integrated PV may demand very different properties of the PV panels, such as design, shade tolerance, resistance to harsh climatic conditions and the ability to capture light under non...

The yearly yield of a module in kWh/kWp depends on the module, the mounting of the module and the location. Accurate models for the calculation of the yearly yield can be very detailed and require many parameters. The parameters of these models are often difficult to determine. Simple models are often not very accurate. In this paper, a method...

Application of large scale photo-voltaic installations in remote desert regions – such as the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) faces a number of challenges: high operating temperatures and UV dose are well known conditions to take into account in view of product lifetime. On top of that yearly yields are under pressure by a phenomenon known...

Application of PV in the built environment, both as BAPV and BIPV, requires improved aesthetics, decreased operating temperatures of the modules and diodes, improved output under partial shading and reduced production costs while allowing the size and shape of the PV elements to be more flexible. ECN presents TESSERA: a novel PV module lay-out...

This paper describes the development and output measurements on a new shade robust module, named the Tessera module. This module uses a novel electrical configuration, comprised of shade independent blocks protected by in-laminate diodes, with a mixture of series and parallel connections. By using ECNs existing back contact technology [1], no...

Aims: Back-contact metallization-wrap-through (MWT) modules made with different materials were manufactured and tested at ECN in The Netherlands. Study Design: Damp heat testing (DH, 85°C and 85% relative humidi ty) was performed to investigate the effect of the module materials and potential failure mechanisms on electrical performance...

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...

Back-contact modules made using a conductive back-sheet foil have a number of advantages over conventional H-pattern modules including a higher power output, compatibility with very thin cells and efficient and high yield manufacturing. In this paper, we present the results of efficiency and material optimisation for cost reduction when using...

In this paper we present a module concept designed for better performance under shadow conditions, incorporating also lower BOS costs. This concept is a high-voltage, low-current, shadow resistant, back-contact module concept. The experimental results under partial shading conditions for mini-modules having a Voc of 39.8V show a substantial...

In order to facilitate the installation of PV systems, it is expected that power optimizers and microinverters will be integrated in the PV module, the so-called Smart PV module. For integrated electronics in PV modules no IEC standard is available yet, but it is likely that the damp heat test at 85°C and 85% relative humidity of the...

In this paper we present ECNs new high-voltage module concept which is based on MWT back-contact technology, and test its performance under shadow conditions. Controlled realistic shading tests were performed for three shade cases that are typical for PV applications in the built environment (a pole shade, a tree shade and a dormer shade). The...

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...

Damp-heat testing of PV modules is a time-consuming process, taking months. The electrochemical noise (EcN) set-up is a fast, direct corrosion measurement of solar cells, whereby results can be obtained within one hour. EcN measurements are presented for several solar cell concepts and different environments. It correlates with damp-heat...
