PV-modules in the power range of 220-240 W with over 250 series connected polycrystalline silicon solar cells are introduced, to obtain operating voltages around 120 V. In one type of module standard cells were cut in four to a format of 156 x 39 mm. In another type specially designed QuarterCells were used. For both types specific cell interconnection technology with overlapping cells was developed. It relies on pressure and needs neither soldering nor gluing. Results of repeated temperature cycling of the different connection technologies are presented.
