Amorphous Silicon PVMaT Phase 2A, Semiannual Subcontract Report, 1 May 1992 - 31 October 1992

    Research output: NRELSubcontract Report


    This report describes work done under a subcontract to significantly advance the photovoltaic manufacturing technologies, reduce module production costs, increase average module performance, and increase the production capacity existing at Utility Power Group (UPG) and Advanced Photovoltaic Systems, Inc. (APS). Areas of focus include (1) encapsulation and termination, (2) product design, (3)process and quality control, and (4) automation. UPG will improve its encapsulation system through the development of advanced encapsulation materials and processes that result in a module that does not require backing glass. In addition, UPG will work to develop advanced termination materials and processes. APS will perform development activities centered on the EUREKA manufacturing line.Developments in the APS EUREKA encapsulation system will be in addition to the UPG activity on encapsulation, and will offer an alternative approach to the problems of encapsulating large-area thin-film modules.
