An evaluation of the degradation effects on photovoltaic modules is essential to minimise uncertainties in the system operation. Bifacial photovoltaic technology is attracting attention due to the capacity of generating energy from the front and rear sides. This paper presents a review of degradation factors, for both conventional monofacial and bifacial photovoltaic modules, to highlight how the current and voltage characteristics of these technologies are affected by degradation. Microcracking, encapsulant discoloration, and light induced degradation seem to have similar effects on both modules. Contrarily, bifacial modules are more prone to potential induced degradation as the electromagnetic shielding is affected by the bifaciality. Bifacial devices are less affected by light and elevated temperature induced degradation. The degradation (1.3%) is similar for both technologies, up to 40 kWh/m2 of solar radiation. Above this value, monofacial degradation increases faster, reaching values of 7%. For tilted systems, the front side soiling degradation of 0.30% per day is similar for both technologies. For vertical systems, soiling loss for bifacial is considerably lower with values of 0.02% per day.

Abstract The improvement of lead halide perovskites solar cells (PSC) by hydrophobic metal-organic frameworks (MOF) is one of the promising tools for modern photovoltaic technology to achieve stable and efficient thin-film devices. To show the MOF applicability for PSC, we incorporate two types of MOF: NH2-MIL-53(Al) and basolite Z1200 in n-i-p mesoporous MAPbI3 based solar cells that can add 2.2% efficiency by increasing main photovoltaic parameters. The simplicity of the proposed MOF’s integration allows to use and adopt this approach to incorporate other frameworks for thin-film perovskite devices.

Abstract This research is a part of multi-year research, which has been started since last year by conducting some studies, either literature or simulation, for photovoltaic technology used in public transportation. In supporting the primary research of the implementation of Transit-Oriented Development’s concept within Kota Tua Jakarta, this research was also delivering the analysis of preferences through the community to designate the appropriate tram shelter within the historical area of Kota Tua Jakarta. By using fuzzy logic, this research has analysed the relevant point of tram shelter within the historical area of Kota Tua Jakarta. It has proposed together with another result of the study to be a good design. Thus, this research has completed some of the Transit-Oriented Development’s basic principles, such as transiting, connecting, and shifting to support the need within the area of Kota Tua Jakarta.
