This paper presents the design, fabrication, testing, and integration with equipment of a flexible photovoltaic module. The modules are based on mono-crystalline silicon Sliver cells. Tests have been developed to specifically test flexible modules, including their flexibility, abrasion resistance, power to weight ratio, and partial shading. The results of a 0.1 m2 module with 13 W power output and 178 W/kg are presented.
