Title: User handbook for Block V silicon solar cell modules

Abstract

The program of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Flat-Plate Solar Array Project (FSA) has included a series of competitive procurements, designated Block I through Block V, of various quantities of solar modules. The objectives of this procurement effort were to stimulate reduction in the cost of photovoltaic energy by encouraging technology advances and to make modules of advanced design available for field testing and for commercial applications. The essential electrical and mechanical characteristics of Block V photovoltaic solar-cell modules are described. Such module characteristics as power output, current-voltage characteristics, nominal operating cell temperature, and dimensions are tabulated. The limits of the environmental and other stress tests to which the modules are subjected are briefly described. Potential users of modules will find this listing helpful in selecting modules and in planning module array systems.
