English abstract:
In this work the design, realization and the performance evaluation of optical structures in solar
modules are presented. The work aims on redirecting light within a PV module to
avoid light loss due to reflections on the metallization grid and the interspace regions between
the single cells. A ray tracing software was used to design structures which can be implemented by
hot embossing into the front and back sheet of a polycarbonate based solar module. Based on the
simulation results test modules were fabricated and characterized by means of I-V measurements.
The results show the usability of ray tracing software for light management purposes in solar
modules and point toward a low cost
performance improvement for solar modules.
