Ideal Placement of Temperature Sensor on Bifacial PV Modules
Back of module temperature is an important parameter in PV performance studies. Several IEC standard [1-2] provide guidelines on measurement and application of this parameter. Typically, the sensors are glued on the back sheet. Shading of cells with the sensor wire and the sensor itself is a concern in bi-facial modules. There is also the question if Bi-facials modules run hotter or cooler due to high current generation and high light absorption. In this study we present a study on the effect of the cell temperature due to the placement of the BOM temperature sensors.
