Kroon, Youp (author)
This graduation project presented the development of a new Photovoltaic-Thermal panel (PVT) module design, aimed at addressing sustainability challenges in conventional solar panels. The research focused on improving repairability and recyclability by replacing the standard ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) laminate with a liquid encapsulant. This...

Many functional photovoltaic (PV) modules are decommissioned prematurely, often due to the financially motivated repowering of PV systems. This study assesses under which circumstances there is an environmental incentive to reuse these modules as opposed to recycling and replacing them with new, more efficient modules. A life cycle assessment...

Kommers, Saskia (author)
The worldwide energy need is increasing and the share of renewable energy sources is too. To generate electricity from renewable sources, no harm to the environment is done. But producing a PV panel is not without emissions. The amount of emissions during production is researched with a life cycle analysis. In the current PV market 75% of the...

Jimenez Pelarda, Daniel (author)
A moisture ingress model is developed using the FEM software COMSOL. The model uses Fick’s second law of diffusion to model the diffusion of moisture in the module. The model also reflects the temperature dependent nature of parameters affecting moisture ingress by using an Arrhenius equation. The model is validated with experimental and...

The municipality of Amsterdam is swiftly advancing its climate neutrality aspirations within the EU’s Climate Neutral Cities Mission. To accelerate this transition, the municipality has set the target to fully utilize suitable rooftop surfaces for solar panels by 2050. Yet, economic incentives prompt households to replace PV panels prematurely,...

Triana de las Heras, Javier (author)
Technological advances, cost reduction, depletion of fossil fuels, environmental concerns, and growing energy demand are expanding photovoltaic solar energy (PV) in more latitudes and locations. A simple and effective procedure to assess the PV potential of a particular region is to analyse its climatic conditions. In general, climatic studies...

Salokhe, Devyani (author)
PV systems in urban environments frequently get shaded by nearby objects, which greatly reduces their yield. A potential solution for such situations is the use of reconfigurable PV modules. They are a type of modules which can reconfigure themselves under varying illumination conditions to ensure optimum yield at all times. The individual PV...

Velpuru, Abhishek (author)
The global share of photovoltaic electricity has been expanding at a breakneck pace with CAGR of 27% over the last decade. This resulted in remarkable advancements in photovoltaic technology and design. The performance of the majority of PV modules is determined in laboratories under controlled conditions. Perhaps the climatic conditions on-site...
