Abstract Solar cells made of silicon based on upgraded metallurgical routes (umg-Si) are becoming a real option to the standard polysilicon-based multicrystalline (mc-Si) devices. A lot of research at wafer and cell level has been carried out so far. However, there is little experience in real operation conditions of PV modules based-on umg-Si feedstock and few of these studies have been published up to present. This work presents a comparative study between typical mc-Si and umg-Si modules… Expand
