Abstract

The suitability of metal-wrap-through solar cells has been explored through a set of solar cells developed and optimized by Fraunhofer ISE for LCPV operation. Flexural strength testing and finite element modeling give evidence of the feasibility of MWT cells as a receiver for low concentration PV systems. MWT cells encapsulated as receivers withstand mechanical stresses equivalent to very large thermal loads (higher than those defined in the qualification standard) and show no fatigue effects after a number of bending loading cycles equivalent to their expected lifespan.
