Accelerated Life Testing and Service Lifetime Prediction for PV Technologies in the Twenty-First Century

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The purposes of this paper are to (1) discuss the necessity for conducting accelerated life testing (ALT) in the early stages of developing new photovoltaic (PV) technologies, (2) elucidate the crucial importance for combining ALT with real-time testing (RTT) in terrestrial environments for promising PV technologies for the 21st century, and (3) outline the essential steps for making a servicelifetime prediction (SLP) for any PV technology.
