The developers of SmartCalc.CTM will provide additional insights on the modelling of losses in PV modules with contributions to the following conferences: 47th IEEE PVSC (Virtual Conference, June 15 - August 21) Pfreundt et al. (#343 - Area 8) "Cell-to-module Analysis Beyond Standard Test Conditions" 37th EU PVSEC (Virtual Conference, September 7-11) Tummalieh et al. “Trend tracking of efficiency and CTM ratio of PV modules”
New features and models developed for SmartCalc.CTM have been published. Find our papers in the proceedings of the the 35th EU PVSEC 2018: “Mosaic module concept for cost-efficient and aesthetic BIPV modules” (Mittag et al.) “A multidimensional optimization approach to improve module efficiency, power and costs” (Shahid et al.) “Rapid calculation of the backsheet coupling gain using ray groups” (Pfreundt et al.)
Once every 4 years, three international photovoltaic technical conferences, the Photovoltaic Science and Engineering Conference (PVSEC), the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference (EU PVSEC) and the IEEE Photovoltaic Specialist Conference (IEEE PVSC) merge into a global photovoltaic energy technical forum: the World Conference on Photovoltaic Energy Conversion. Max Mittag presents SmartCalc.CTM and our latest approaches to cell to module analysis. The focus of his poster presentation is the extension of our analysis methodology towards full wafer to system yield predictions.
