AIM: development of an integrated experimental-computational methodology to assess the durability of photovoltaic (PV) modules by considering microcracking in Silicon. INSTRUMENTS: thermocamera and electroluminescence camera for integrity assessment of PV modules on site and in laboratory. METHODOLOGY: Multi-physics approach based on FEM and nonlinear fracture mechanics to predict crack patterns and their effects on the electric response. APPLICATION FIELDS: improvement of quality standards (PV manufacturers) inspection of PV installations for forensics applications (end users).
