An optical comparison of silicone and EVA encapsulants for conventional silicon PV modules: A ray-tracing study

McIntosh, Keith; Cotsell, James; Cumpston, Jeffrey; Norris, Ann; Powell, Nick; Ketola, Barry

Description

Ray-trace simulation is used to quantify the optical losses of photovoltaic modules containing silicon cells. The simulations show that when the module's encapsulant is silicone rather than ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), the module's short-circuit current
