Photovoltaic Modules Performance – Comparative Study

Co-authors PACURAR Cristian, TOADER Dumitru

This paper describes different types of photovoltaic cells in order to improve the electrical performance of photovoltaic modules and choose the best solution for industry. It is presented the characteristics of photovoltaic cells (conventional and high- efficiency) and the photovoltaic modules. The performance of photovoltaic cells and modules are measured complying with the standard reporting conditions, which are presented as a reference temperature, total irradiance and spectral irradiance distribution. This study compares the structure, function, advantages and disadvantages photovoltaic cells.
