Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR APPLYING A METALLIZATION PATTERN TO A SUBSTRATE FOR A PHOTOVOLTAIC CELL
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL D'APPLICATION D'UN MOTIF DE METALLISATION SUR UN SUBSTRAT POUR CELLULES PHOTOVOLTAIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
Method for applying a metallization to at least one of the outer surfaces of a substrate for a photovoltaic element in accordance with a predetermined pattern of electrical conductors which comprises a set of relatively thin lines (fingers) and a set of relatively wide strips (busbars) connected thereto for transporting electrical charge carriers, which method comprises the steps of: (i) applying a metal-containing conductive paste to the relevant surface in accordance with said determined pattern, and (ii) drying the paste applied to the surface, wherein in the first step (i) a first paste for the set of the finger lines is applied using a stencil and a second paste for the set of the busbar strips is subsequently applied using an apparatus for contact-free application; apparatus for performing this method and photovoltaic element with substrate manufactured according to this method.
(FR)
Cette invention concerne un procédé servant à appliquer une métallisation sur au moins l'une des surfaces extérieures d'un substrat pour élément photovoltaïque en fonction d'un motif prédéterminé de conducteurs électriques constitués par un ensemble de lignes relativement fines (doigts) et par un ensemble de bandes relativement larges (barres omnibus) connectées aux lignes pour le transport des porteurs de charges électriques. Ce procédé consiste: (i) à appliquer une pâte conductrice contenant du métal sur la surface en question en fonction dudit motif déterminé; et (ii) à sécher la pâte appliquée sur ladite surface. Dans la première étape (i), une première pâte pour l'ensemble des lignes relativement fines ou doigts est appliquée à l'aide d'un patron et une seconde pâte pour l'ensemble des bandes relativement larges ou barres omnibus est ensuite appliquée à l'aide d'un appareil d'application sans contact. Cette invention concerne également un appareil de réalisation de ce procédé et un élément photovoltaïque avec un substrat fabriqué selon ce procédé.
