PID of Potential Induced Degradation means that the solar panels will degrade faster and thus can not achieve the expected return on 20-year. To regenerate affected panels by PID and prevent the emergence of PID, ILUMEN developed in-house the PID BOX.
This week, however, we had a request from a number of students from Group T -which all are a part of the Punch Powertrain Solar Team Belgium- to install a PID BOX on their solar car in order to shed their profitability.
This team will next month compete in the European Solar Challenge. A competition where teams from different countries participate in their self-built solar car.
