Abstract
SOLAR ELECTRICAL GENERATION CELLS ARE SUBJECT TO RADIATION AND THERMAL BREAKDOWN FROM EXPOSURE. THE PURPOSE OF THE PRESENT STUDY IS TO IMPROVE THERMAL STABILITY OF ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT IN ENERGY-EFFICIENT STRUCTURES. OBJECTIVES ARE TO DESIGN, CONSTRUCT AND TEST AN INNOVATIVE PROTECTIVE SYSTEM FOR SOLAR COLLECTORS THAT WILL IMPROVE THE THERMAL STABILITY AND RADIATION DETERIORATION OF SUCH CELLS. A STANDARD SYSTEM WILL BE SET UP AS WILL AN INNOVATIVE DESIGN WHERE COMPARATIVE TESTS FOR ELECTRIC GENERATION AND THERMAL AND RADIATION EXPOSURE WILL BE ASSESSED. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT THE INNOVATIVE DESIGN WILL YIELD A SYSTEM WITH INCREASED PROTECTION.
