Current analyses dictate that for economic viability photovoltaic arrays should have a service life of 2O years or more. A need exists for meaningful accelerated tests to predict array life so that a relatively quick assessment can be made of the potential of present developmental designs and of the extent to which improvements in life are needed. As a part of the Encapsulation Task of the LSSA Project, this study undertook to develop a methodology for designing aging tests in which life prediction was paramount.
