As Photovoltaic cell and module manufacturing methods continue to evolve, achieving superior thermal process performance remains a common theme. There is often excessive variation in temperature due to:
- system hysteresis
- poor recovery response
- sensor location error
- heat source non-uniformity
Temperature variation can lead to a myriad of problems for Photovoltaic cells and modules including warped or broken substrates, inconsistent layer thickness during deposition, poor penetration during diffusion or incomplete chemical reactions. All of these issues can lead to increased takt times, lower yields and increased cost per module.
