Abstract. The paper shows the possibility and results of measuring the thermal resistance junction-to-board of monocrystalline solar cells using the modulation method. Shown the dependance between the solar cell efficiency on temperature and its “junction-to-board” thermal resistance value. Approved the possibility of express solar cells diagnostics based on the thermal resistance measuring results at the input control in the production of solar batteries.

Key words: solar cell, thermal resistance, measurements, modulation method, efficiency.

Financing: work was performed in accordance with the state task No. 075-01133-22.
