Abstract: The performance of single, double, triple junction a-Si:H and hybrid (a-Si/µc-Si) thin film modules from different manufacturers were studied with both indoor and outdoor measurements over a one year period under various conditions. Before the outdoor test campaign, modules Temperature Coefficients (TCO) and performance surface measurements were carried out indoors over varying conditions of irradiance and temperature. During the outdoor investigation the modules were also briefly removed from the rack and measured every month indoors at Standard Test Conditions STC (1000W/m2, AM1.5 and 25°C). The outdoor measurements were performed on a fixed latitude tilted open rack. Comparisons of the indoor and outdoor data corrected to STC were made over the measurement period.
