PhD position - Thermomechanical Modeling of Photovoltaic Modules Manufacturing Processes . THERMOD

SL-DRT-18-0999

RESEARCH FIELD

Materials and applications

ABSTRACT

Photovoltaic (PV) modules are made of a stack of active PV layers (Si, passivation), protective polymer encapsulation and glass plates. Performance and lifetime of PV modules depend on their ability to sustain various environmental conditions that are linked to thermomechanical, physical, chemical and/or electrical phenomena. The purpose of this PhD is to model the cells encapsulation and interconnection processes to better understand their influence on the main failure mechanisms observed in the modules. In order to address such technological and scientific issues, the research work will focus on:- Modeling the thermomechanical phenomena experienced by a module during its manufacturing process and evaluating the induced residual stresses within the module;- Determining the impact of the thermomechanical conditions on module performance and the level of residual stresses;- Proposing solutions to reduce the levels of residual stresses.Numerical models will be developed to simulate the thermomechanical phenomena involved during the manufacturing processes of PV modules. The influence of the process parameters on the modules performance will be modeled and validated experimentally to better optimize the processes and the selection of materials involved in the PV module.
