Comment | More

Atlas Material Testing Solutions announced program details for a two-day conference on accelerated aging and evaluation of solar-energy systems, scheduled for Dec. 8-9 in Phoenix, AZ. Presentations will focus on developments, research, and innovative approaches to environmental durability, performance, and service life of materials, components, and photovoltaic modules, the company said.

The solar market has grown rapidly, and accurate weathering testing has increased in importance for product development, quality control, and certification testing, the company said in announcing plans for the conference. Speakers will address a range of issues related to the long-term performance of photovoltaic systems. Specific topics include:

• accelerated thermal degradation of polymers in PV applications;

• benchmark climates and accelerated weathering conditions for flexible, thin-film PV materials;

• multifunctional building-integrated PV;

• advanced environmental testing of PV—technologies and test standards;

• progress towards service life assessment of PV modules;

• reliability challenges for solar energy;

• accelerated stress testing of materials used inpPhotovoltaic applications;

• survival probability for PV modules;

• the role of FMEA and fault tree analysis in the development of appropriate test regimens for reliability studies;

• systems and methods to optimize solar simulation tests in relation to the natural service environments of PV systems;

• does the module last? advanced test design for environmental durability of PV modules and systems; and

• outdoor weathering of PV modules in various open-air climates.
