Photovoltaic Module Reliability - a Study on Cell Mismatch

Qian, Jiadong (Harry)


This thesis is devoted to model and analyse the reliability of photovoltaic modules impacted by non-uniformity of cell performance. Both the short-term failure and the long-term degradation are discussed for a range of module technologies. This thesis is comprised of two main categories: simulating the hotspot effect in crystalline silicon solar modules with different configurations and the reliability of potential perovskite/silicon tandem modules. First, an electrical-thermal simulation...[Show more]
