Abstract

We report results of stability tests of 4 ft2 triple-junction a-Si alloy photovoltaic (PV) Modules. These Modules were produced in ECD's 2 Megawatt (MW) continuous, roll-to-roll PV Manufacturing line during the early stage of optimization. The stable module efficiency after 600 hours of 1 sun light soaking at approximately 50°C under load, is 8%. This is the highest stable efficiency for large area (≥4 ft2) a-Si alloy PV Modules Made in a production line.
