Evaluation of Failure Modes for Photovoltaic Modules in Arid Climatic Zones in Brazil

This paper evaluates the degradation in early-generation photovoltaic (PV) silicon and thin-film modules in arid and semi-arid regions in Brazil. Monocrystalline (c-Si) and thin-film (a-Si and CdTe)

Analysis of the degradation of single‐crystalline silicon modules after 21 years of operation

In this paper, the results of the analysis of the degradation of a set of single‐crystalline silicon modules after 21 years are presented. The comparison of the main electrical parameters and the

Comparative degradation analysis of different photovoltaic technologies on experimentally simulated water bodies and estimation of evaporation loss reduction

Degradation of photovoltaic (PV) systems on water bodies can be matter of serious concern due to high humid environmental conditions above water surface as compared with land surface. The primary

Building integrated thin film photovoltaic performance modelling on conventional building

PV(Photovoltaic) technologies have been developed into many forms. The emergence of BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaics) technology, it is possible for a building component to have another

Effects of Aging and Environmental Factors on Performance of CdTe and CIS Thin-Film Photovoltaic Modules

The effects of aging and environmental factors on the performance of cadmium telluride (CdTe) and copper indium gallium selenide (CIS) thin-film photovoltaic (PV) modules have been analyzed. Recent

Investigation of Annealing and Degradation Effects on a-Si PV Modules in Real Operating Conditions

This article summarizes the main results obtained by the investigation of annealing and degradation mechanisms observed for amorphous silicon (a-Si) modules. This interest comes from the encouraging
