Since 2010 the potential induced degradation is known to be one of the main causes for module failures. With the new technology developed by the Fraunhofer CSP and now commercially available as the benchtop tool PIDcon by Freiberg Instruments solar cells and mini modules can be tested for their PID susceptibility.
Learn more about the reasons for PID and how the susceptibility of solar cells, mini modules and encapsulation materials can be investigated.
Potential induced degradation (PID) is one of the most dangerous degradation phenomena observed in c-Si modules. Great progress has been achieved in the understanding of the basic mechanism of PID of the shunting type (PID-s).
A comparison with other widely used methods for PID testing demonstrates that the PIDcon has great advantages.
The PID susceptibility depends on several parameters as the stress factors temperature and voltage as well as the encapsulation materials and the SiNx layer of the solar cell itself.
In order to establish a criterion for the pass or fail of the PID test the conductance test and the power loss are used.
