Abstract

The degradation of solar photovoltaic module is associated with the outdoor weather condition at the product's use location. In this paper we propose a practical method to integrate this auxiliary information into the reliability prediction. Multi-year field data of degradation measurements of PV modules installed in Mesa, Arizona, are analyzed. Temperature is found to be a significant factor that influences the PV degradation process.
