A modular library


SimPlan is providing a modular library to support modeling of the following processes: cell manufacture using wafer technology, module and thin film solar cells manufacture. The modular library contains components for mapping all the process steps and the connecting conveyor technology between the plants.

This includes in particular components for modeling the following sub-processes of cell manufacture using both wafer and thin film technology: cleaning, coating, doping, structuring, contacting and passivating. Components for modelling the entire plant, from glass rinsing to performance measurement, are made available for the manufacture of the modules.

Process steps such as laying films or string can be mapped in detail. All components have defined interfaces to facilitate flexible coupling. Furthermore they can be extended with respect to specific applications. In addition general components for data management, order generating and the evaluation of simulation runs are provided.
