Title: THIN FILM PHOTO-VOLTAIC MODULE
Abstract:
Photovoltaic module with a plurality of thin film photovoltaic cells (2). Each thin film photovoltaic cell (2) has a transparent electrode (12) provided on a transparent substrate (11), a solar cell stack (13) positioned on the transparent electrode (12), and a top electrode (14) positioned on the solar cell stack (13). A plurality of parallel connected PV cell units (3) are provided, each comprising a string of series connected PV cells (2). A positive connection part (6, 20a) and a negative connection part (5, 20b) are present in a single top interconnection layer, providing the parallel connection circuit of the parallel connected PV cell units (3). At least one cross over connection member (9a, 9b) is present in a layer different from the single top interconnection layer, which provides an electrical connection in the negative connection part (5, 20b) and/or in the positive connection part (6, 20a).
