Technical Evaluation of Solar Cells, Inc., CdTe Modules and Array at NREL

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


The Engineering and Technology Validation Team at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) conducts in-situ technical evaluations of polycrystalline thin-film photovoltaic (PV) modules and arrays. This paper focuses on the technical evaluation of Solar Cells, Inc., (SCI) cadmium telluride (CdTe) module and array performance by attempting to correlate individual module and array performance. This is done by examining the performance and stability of the modules and array over a period of more than one year. Temperature coefficients for module and array parameters (Pmax, Vee, Vmax. fsc, lmax) are also calculated.
