    Field Tests Measuring Solar Panel Performance Could Help Improve PV Technology

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    In a series of field tests performed at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion (MPI-CEC), key parameters in solar panel performance were measured to gather data that can be used for choosing the most appropriate panel option for local conditions in terms of long-term performance. Five inorganic photovoltaic (PV) technologies representative of current options on the market were installed and measured: micromorph thin-film silicon, cadmium telluride, copper-indium-gallium-selenium, polycrystalline silicon, and amorphous silicon.

    In testing solar panels, the sun’s intensity, the spectral composition, and the angle of light are important factors in understanding why certain panels are successful and others degrade…
