Paper Abstract

The reliability of PV modules and systems is critical to the commercial success of Photovoltaics. Financial payback requires PV systems to reliably produce the promised electricity over the warranted time period. This paper will review the present status of PV system reliability using outdoor data from fielded arrays and results from accelerated testing of components.
