Abstract
arge scale (6000 cm2) dye solar cell (DSC) modules were developed using the meander and integrated series connection design in combination with the glass frit sealing technique [1]. The manufacturing process, as developed at Fraunhofer ISE for glass frit-sealed DSC modules, is based entirely on screen printing and does not require the interconnection of sub-modules. With the same technique and appropriate quality control, a good reproducibility on smaller scaled modules (10 x 10 cm²) is already achieved and a solar efficiency of 7.1% on the active area has been reached, resulting in 5.3% efficiency on total aperture area. The scope of the recent work is to prove that the manufacturing concept is up-scalable to attractive areas for the BIPV market. To reach the size of 60 x 100 cm² it was necessary to transfer each process step into an industrial environment. Additionally a half-automated station for coloring and electrolyte-filling made out of standard parts was constructed which forms the basis for the final processing steps. Additional functions (processes and quality control) to ensure the long-term stability are integrated into the station. First operating module prototypes have been manufactured with this equipment. Different processing steps and the electrical characterization of these first 60 x 100 cm2 prototypes are presented along with an overview of the advantages of this module concept in terms of cost effective up-scaling and transfer to industrial production.
