The performance of photovoltaic (PV) modules is generally rated under standard test conditions (STC). However, the performance of thin-film photovoltaic modules is not unique even under STC, because of the “metastability”. The effects of the light soaking and thermal annealing shall be incorporated into an appropriate energy rating standard. In this study, the change in I–V characteristics of thin-film PV modules caused by the metastability was examined by repeated indoor measurements in… CONTINUE READING
