Repeated low power, or primary arcing, may adversely affect the performance of space solar cells. The cumulative effects of primary arcing on common solar cell performance parameters has been the subject of numerous ground studies in simulated plasma environments. The Primary Arc effects on Solar Cells At LEO (PASCAL) flight experiment is presently active… CONTINUE READING
