Tapping Into PCBs for PV Thermal Issues
A major challenge facing the solar industry today is thermal dissipation. Photovoltaics (PVs), or solar cells, found in large solar panels convert sunlight into electricity. But during this conversion, PVs mounted on modules generate considerable heat.
Until recently, the solar industry hasn’t given much attention to PCBs as a way to effectively resolve these thermal issues. However, PCBs have a long and well-documented track record for dissipating heat in an endless array of thermal-intensive applications. Given this history, there are compelling reasons for the solar industry to consider adopting PCBs for PV technology.
