Abstract
(EN)
Solar module with a plurality of solar cells (2), a back contact sheet (3) for connecting the plurality of solar cells (2) in one or more strings (5), and a plurality of clusters (7) of back side contacts (4). Each cluster (7) is associated with one of the plurality of solar cells (2) for providing electrical contact to the back contact sheet (3). At least one of the plurality of solar cells (2') is positioned outside of a regular grid pattern (8)associated with a single one of the plurality of solar cells (2), and the back contact sheet (3) and/or the plurality of clusters (7) of back side contacts (4) is adapted locally to contact the at least one of the plurality of solar cells (2') with the associated string (5) of the one or more strings (5).

L'invention concerne un module solaire comprenant une pluralité de cellules solaires (2), une feuille de contact arrière (3) pour connecter la pluralité de cellules solaires (2) dans une ou plusieurs chaînes (5), et une pluralité de groupes (7) de contacts côté arrière (4). Chaque groupe (7) est associé à une cellule solaire de la pluralité de cellules solaires (2) pour assurer un contact électrique à la feuille de contact arrière (3). Au moins une cellule solaire de la pluralité de cellules solaires (2') est positionnée en dehors d'un motif de quadrillage régulier (8) associé à une cellule solaire individuelle de la pluralité de cellules solaires (2), et la feuille de contact arrière (3) et/ou la pluralité de groupes (7) de contacts côté arrière (4) sont conçus pour mettre localement en contact ladite cellule solaire de la pluralité de cellules solaires (2') avec la chaîne associée (5) desdites chaînes (5).
