Anti Micro-Crack Design

Anti Micro-Crack Design

Micro-cracks are a reality for any semi-flexible and portable solar panel. Like a virus in a computer, micro-cracks reduce performance and the lifespan of a solar cell. Flexopower's Mojave solar cells are designed to ensure consistent high output and performance despite micro-cracks.  close up of a Flexopower Mojave solar panel showing two-dimensional grid What are micro-cracks in solar cells?  Silicon solar cells are made of very thin wafers, usually around 0.20mm thick. They can suffer from pressure/stress induced cracks which are so small they are impossible to see with the naked eye. These are called micro-cracks. Electroluminescence Crack Detection  When do micro-cracks occur in solar cells? ...

How your semi-flexible solar panels die a slow death

Semi-flexible solar panels such as the Tacoma-130 by Flexopower follow the curvature of the roof and are popular on vehicle, RV and trailer roofs.  When travelling to destination, roof mounted panels can be subject to aerodynamic fluttering. If there are gaps between the solar panel and the roof, air is entering causing the solar panel to flutter. Aerodynamic fluttering can be severe and prolonged exposure gradually disconnects the cells. The result is a continuous loss of power until failure of the solar panel.  Here is an example. A client of Flexopower installed 3 x Tacoma-130 on his off-road trailer. All 3 panels stopped working at the same...
