Methods and Algorithms for Statistical Quality Control of Photovoltaic Modules

The project (Apr 2007 - Dec 2007) is supported by TÜV Rheinland Immissionsschutz und Energiesysteme GmbH

The project aims to develop problem-specific stochastic methods to assess the quality of shipments of photovoltaic modules. Special emphasis is on the small to moderate sample size case and on statistically justified comparisons of flasherlist and laboratory data. The statistical behavior of the decision rules for parameter settings of practical relevance are studied by computer simulations.


To foster dissemination of stochastic methods in the quality assessment of photovoltaic modules, efficient algorithms for methods developed in a previous project and a user-friendly graphical user interface are implemented in an expert software tool called APOS.
