|Title: ||Thermo-mechanical finite element simulation of a sub-cell utilising wire interconnection|

|Abstract: ||Reliability has become increasingly important in the photovoltaic (PV) industry, mainly since it has a big influence
on the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) while it embodies a lot of the risks when investing in renewable energy .
However, determining lifetime of a module technology is very time consuming and almost never conclusive.
This is especially the case when working with novel interconnection technologies .
To reduce the experimental overhead when studying reliability, a finite element (FE) model
containing the components most prone to failure is suggested. All assumptions used in the
model must be verified by measurements.|
