Modeling outdoor behaviour of fill factor in thin film modules
One of the major differences between traditional crystalline-Si modules and newer technologies, such as CdTe and multiple junction devices, is the variation of fill factor with irradiance. This work aims to investigate these discrepancies and to model the fill factor behaviour using analytical models. The analysis will incorporate series and shunt resistance behaviour over a range of illumination methods to explain fill factor losses.
