Alpha's Pujari to Present on Interconnection for Floating PV Applications at Intersolar India


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions is participating in the upcoming Intersolar India taking place December 1113, 2018, in Bangalore, India.

Narahari Pujari, R&D manager for Alpha Assembly Solutions, part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses, will present a technical paper on a review of interconnection technology for floating PV applications that critically assesses various cell designs, material and techniques to join cells for floating PV assemblies.

"It is reported that 40.7% of cSi PV (photovoltaic) modules fail at interconnection in a module’s lifespan. This risk is even higher in floating PV applications. This is due to high moisture content and corrosion resulting from adverse environmental conditions as well as instability in times of inclement weather, hazardous condensation in the interior, etc.," said Pujari. "Additionally, joints that are exposed to fatigue loading and vibrations have shown metal segregation, grain boundary coarsening/cracking, increased series resistance and heating issues. The industry is still evaluating interconnection options in new cell designs. All these make the review of interconnection technologies employed in floating PV imperative."

Pujari's paper will demonstrate the role of non-corrosive flux and EVA compatibility studies. In addition, use of lead-free soldering and solder paste technologies to support the current design trend of new cell architectures will be presented. Both options are cost efficient and could improve the module performance and consequently extend the mean-time-to-failure (MTTF).

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
