Title:
 
Thin Film Modules: Long Term Operational Experience in Mediterranean Climate
 
Abstract/Summary:
 
ENEA within the frame of R&D and Demonstration Photovoltaic activities, in collaboration with KANEKA, has been continuing the activity already initiated some years ago on monitoring experimental PV plants based on thin film PV modules. The objective of the research is to evaluate first of all the reliability of the modules efficiency in terms of capacity to keep the energy conversion efficiency over long periods and then to test the behaviour of the modules, and the modules structures as well, that have been subjected to the hard marine environment conditions (temperature, corrosion etc.). Two plants of about 1 kWp have been monitoring: the first a-Si single junction modules in operation since June 2002; the second hybrid a-Si/μc-Si modules plant active since January 2006. Data collected after a long term of continuous monitoring are shown and discussed.
