Title (EN) FOLDABLE PHOTOVOLTAIC ASSEMBLY WITH NON-PERPENDICULAR INTERCONNECTION
(FR) ENSEMBLE PHOTOVOLTAÏQUE PLIABLE À INTERCONNEXION NON PERPENDICULAIRE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Foldable photovoltaic assemblies and methods of manufacturing such assemblies, including a transparent top sheet having a fold line and a conductive interconnection pattern spanning the fold line. The conductive interconnection pattern includes inter-cell connections configured to interconnect individual photovoltaic cells to form photovoltaic submodules, and also inter-submodule connections configured to interconnect photovoltaic submodules to form an assembly of submodules, which in some cases may be a fully assembled photovoltaic module. The inter-submodule connections span the fold line and are oriented at non-perpendicular angles relative to the fold line.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des ensembles photovoltaïques pliables et leurs procédés de fabrication, comprenant une feuille supérieure transparente ayant une ligne de pliage et un motif d'interconnexion conducteur recouvrant la ligne de pliage. Le motif d'interconnexion conducteur comprend des connexions inter-cellules conçues pour interconnecter des cellules photovoltaïques individuelles afin de former des sous-modules photovoltaïques, et également des connexions inter-sous-modules conçues pour interconnecter des sous-modules photovoltaïques afin de former un ensemble de sous-modules, qui, dans certains cas, peut être un module photovoltaïque entièrement assemblé. Les connexions inter-sous-modules recouvrent la ligne de pliage et sont orientées à des angles non perpendiculaires par rapport à la ligne de pliage.
