Abstract/Summary:


This article deals with the effect of the quality of moisture isolation of the frame of a solar module on the overall functionality of the module. The main goal is to investigate the causes of frame damage, peeling of the frame seal and decrease in the photovoltaic module performance. The problems were examined using various diagnostic methods. The tested photovoltaic modules have been exposed to simulated climate-like environmental conditions and the mentioned defect has been detected. In this work the results of the investigated failure problem are presented. Measured values obtained from several types of measurements are compared and evaluated.
