Manufacturing of Wafer-Si Solar Cells and Modules
In this chapter the current manufacturing processes for wafer-Si solar cells and modules are explained including monocrystalline Si and multicrystalline Si, as they are the most popular cell technologies on the market with a 90 % combined market share. The discussion will start from quartz reduction through module fabrication.
