Steady growth in the commercial application of solar cell systems has been achieved in recent years. In many parts of the world photovoltaics are being used in essential life sustaining or enhancing applications, such as communications, water pumping and vaccine refrigeration. Even in the more industrialized nations a growing number of uses are being found for photovoltaics in areas which are surrounded by grid distribution systems.****This new volume covers the latest advances in research and development in photovoltaicsranging from numerical modeling of solar cells to outdoor characterization, to radiation resistance of space solar cells.
* PV device performances in spectral solar radiation
* Numerical modelling for analysis and design of solar cells
* Radiation damage mechanisms in Si and GaAs solar cells
* Health and safety issues in photovoltaic cell manufacturing
