Comparison of the Modes and Mechanisms of Degradation of Experimental c-Si PV Modules with Various Encapsulants
Seven modules with different encapsulants along with the load resistorsand junction boxes were provided by National Renewable EnergyLaboratory (NREL) to Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) for long termdurability testing in hot and humid climate of Florida. The moduleswere installed at a latitude tilt, on a south facing rack betweenMarch 20-21, 2014.This report describes the results from the baselinevisual inspection, infrared (IR) imaging and outdoor current-voltage(I-V) measurements that were carried out on the modules, shortly afterthe installation.
