Solar module yield gains from structured ribbons
Feb 25, 2021|
We compare the effects of planar & triangular ribbons, light redirecting films, wires and a new proposed pentagonal ribbon geometry, in fixed optimal inclination, building-integrated (façade), and single-axis tracking installation scenarios of modules in portrait and landscape orientation. We conclude that to fully evaluate the effectiveness of a specific ribbon design, the annual energy yield must consider the angular irradiance distribution and weather conditions at a specific location, the installation scenario, and the module orientation.

Impact of cell textures on angular cell-to-module ratios
May 02, 2018|
This work investigates the optical properties of textured surfaces from novel methods such as plasma texturing and metal catalyzed chemical etching, as well as other conventionally textured surfaces like isotropic acidic and random pyramid textures.

Methodology for simulating PV module yield based on the optical, thermal and electrical properties of module components and configuration.
SunCalculator - Angular and spectral distribution of solar radiation
Aug 20, 2016|
In this work, we calculate the angular and spectral distribution of direct and diffuse irradiation based on measured time-resolved integral values for diffuse and direct irradiation.
