Original Abstract

This paper describes recent developments made to the finite element modeling of solar cells, extending its capability to handle viscoplastic behavior. It also presents the validation of this approach and results obtained for an interconnection of solar cells. Lifetime predictions are made using the creep strain energy based models of Darveaux. This study discusses the analysis methodologies as implemented in the ANSYS finite element simulation software tool. The aim of this paper is to improve reliability interconnection of sollar cells and to increase durability of these structures. Three-dimensional finite element analysis has been applied to determine the independence on different types of substrates and solder pastes.
