Environmental testing of Block III solar cell modules. Part I. Qualification testing of standard production modules

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The results of qualification tests of Block III solar modules are described. Block III was the third large-scale procurement of silicon solar cell modules made by the JPL Low-cost Solar Array Project; the qualification modules were delivered in 1978. Block III modules continue to show improvements over Block I and Block II modules. Cell cracking and delamination are less prevalent, and interconnect problems and electrical degradation from environmental testing are now rare.
