A round robin test was carried out in four PV laboratories to compare accelerated lifetime testing. Twenty commercial non-packaged CIGS solar cells of similar performance were spread and exposed to damp heat con-ditions (85 ◦C and 85% RH) for approximately 500 h. Their JV performance was monitored during the damp heat exposure. After the test,...

System voltages can cause significant degradation in photovoltaic modules. Polarization-type potential-induced degradation (PID) is accompanied by decreases in the short-circuit current density and the open-circuit voltage. The system voltage causes a polarization and surface charge accumulation, increasing the interface recombination. The...

Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) thin-film solar cells are a promising technology, but inline quality inspection systems are required for efficient high-volume production. Tests with two candidate methods: Raman spectroscopy and photo-luminescence imaging, are reported in this paper. The methods were used to estimate material compositions...

The implementation of residential photovoltaics must increase more rapidly to combat climate change and its impacts. This challenge is addressed in this study by introducing a segmentation model in order to develop a theoretical and empirical foundation for understanding the heterogeneity of potential adopters. Data were collected by means of a...

Grootschalige toepassing van zonnecellen (photovoltaic cells, PV) in de gebouwde omgeving is gelimiteerd, mede omdat dakoppervlakken niet volledig benut kunnen worden ten gevolge van de ligging en de aanwezigheid van verstorende elementen als schoorstenen, dakkapellen, daklichten, etc. Het wegennet in Nederland biedt aanknopingspunten voor...

Electric vehicles are destined to become the main form of people transport in the near future. They are noise and emission free with the potential to offer completely zero-emission use when the energy used to charge their batteries is generated from renewable resources. On-board PV, PV that is integrated into the body of the car is a novel...

Perovskite semiconductors hold a unique promise in developing multijunction solar cells with high-efficiency and low-cost. Besides design constraints to reduce optical and electrical losses, integrating several very different perovskite absorber layers in a multijunction cell imposes a great processing challenge. Here, we report a versatile two...

Partial shading of Cu(In,Ga)(Se,S)2 (CIGS) photovoltaic (PV) modules is getting more attention, as is witnessed by the increase in publications on this topic in recent years. This review will give an overview of shading tests executed on CIGS modules and focuses on the more fundamental aspects that are often studied on cells. Generally, CIGS...

Partial shading of Cu(In,Ga)Se2 modules can lead to the formation of reverse bias induced wormlike defects. These wormlike defects act as local shunts and permanently decrease module output. A good understanding of the formation and propagationmechanisms of these defects is needed in order tomitigate the negative effects, or to prevent these...

The optical losses associated with sub-micron absorbers in CIGS solar cells can be reduced by light management techniques. 3-D optical modelling was used to optimize light in-coupling and internal rear reflectance in a 750-nm thick CIGS reference solar cell. At the front side, an effective medium approximation (EMA) approach for describing...

A full-size (1 × 5 m2) luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) has been constructed and the edge electric outputs from the attached photovoltaic cells monitored for a period of slightly over one year in the solar noise barrier (SONOB) “living lab” outdoor environment. The results of the edge electric output measurements were compared to ray-tracing...
