Abstract
In recent years PV modules have been improved evidently. An excellent reliability has been validated corresponding to Mean Time between Failure (MTBF) between 500 and 6000 years respectively in commercial utility power systems. Manufactures can provide performance guarantees for PV modules at least for 20 years. If an average inverter lifetime of 5 years is assumed, it is evident that the overall reliability of PV systems [PVSs] with integrated inverter is determined chiefly by the inverter itself. It must be considered that the module integration of the inverter results in harsh environment especially like high temperature stress. This paper presents a single s...
