In Russia, we created a life extension technology of space solar cells
Holding "Russian Space Systems" (RCC) completed the establishment of a modernized electrical protection systems for solar domestic production, the press service of the holding. Application of the system will significantly extend the life of the spacecraft power sources and solar panels will make Russia one of the most energy efficient in the world. The basis of solar protection systems comprise diodes - small devices that are installed on each photoelectric converter (FEP), which consists of a solar panel. Diodes are one of the key elements, the quality of which depends on its energy efficiency and active lifetime.
