Sandia National Laboratories and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) jointly organized the annual Photovoltaic Module Reliability Workshop. The February 2016 event attracted nearly 300 photovoltaics (PV) experts from national laboratories, industry, and academia to discuss advances in photovoltaic system reliability and lifetime. Sandia’s Olga Lavrova gave the keynote presentation, “Overview of PV Systems Reliability”; Geoff Klise spoke on “PV System Reliability: An Operations and Management Perspective”; Jay Johnson presented “Arc-Fault Detection and Mitigation”; and Jack Flicker spoke on “Ground Faults Detection and Mitigation.” Concurrent technical workgroup meetings focused on emerging topics such as rapid shutdown for PV systems to ensure firefighter safety. The next PV materials and reliability workshop is planned for February 2017.
