Mechanical Studies of Cadmium Sulfide/Cadmium Telluride (CdS/CdTe) Photovoltaic Modules
MetadataShow full item record
Commercial Cadmium Sulfide (CdS) and Cadmium Telluride (CdTe) photovoltaic modules are typically 24” x 48”. The processing steps include: glass heating, Cadmium Sulfide (CdS) deposition and Cadmium Telluride (CdTe) deposition, Cadmium Chloride (CdCl2) heat treatment, back contact formation and back contact heat-treatment. The main components of the photovoltaic module under consideration in this research are the tempered front glass, an encapsulant (ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA)) interlayer, and the tempered bottom glass. During processing, the front glass loses a certain degree of temper. ...
