Descriptions of Shingled Solar Modules ETFE Semi-flexible Mono Solar Panels
Shingle Solar Panels
Shingle solar panels have solar cells cut into 5 or 6 strips. These strips can be overlaid, like shingles on a roof, to form electrical connections. The strips of solar cells are joined together using an electrically conductive adhesive (ECA) that allows for conductivity and flexibility.
The main advantages of solar shingles are their aesthetic appearance, lower currents resulting in potential lower resistive losses, and a higher packing density for photovoltaic modules, increasing the efficiency of flexible solar panels.
Shingle technology allows the cells to be connected differently to conventional solar panels in that there are no busbars (ribbons) required, and the solar cells can be joined together, resulting in no gaps between the solar cells.
Shingled solar modules can also be wired differently from conventional solar panels. Typically, solar cells in conventional solar panels are wired in a series of strings, whereas the solar cells in shingled panels can be wired in a parallel configuration.
Advantages of Shingled Solar Panels
1. Increased Energy Harvest
The shingled solar cells do not require busbars across the top of the cells, so more of the solar cells are exposed to sunlight. The cells do not need to be spaced apart like conventional solar panels to produce more energy in the same area.
Conventional solar panels have individual cells wired in series, so when a part of the solar panel is shaded, it can significantly affect the power output level. By configuring the solar cells in shingles, they can be wired in groups and configured in parallel, greatly reducing the losses caused by shading.
2. More Reliable
Low Busbar Failures
Shingle solar panels do away with approximately 30 meters of the busbar and soldered joints required on conventional solar panels, reducing busbar failures.
Better Mechanical Performance
Static and dynamic load tests show that the shingle approach is more resistant to failure due to external forces being applied to the solar panel than conventional solar panels.
3. More Attractive
Shingled solar panels have no visible circuitry, giving them a clean, simple look and providing superior street appeal. As solar panel technology matures, shingled modules represent the current state-of-the-art performance, reliability, and aesthetics.
4. Bending Over 30 Degrees, No Micro-cracks.
