Max Mittag

Fraunhofer ISE


Max Mittag is the head of the team PV Module Assessment at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE, Freiburg (Germany). His current work includes the analysis of power losses in photovoltaic modules (cell-to-system analysis), techno-economical assessments, Cost of Ownership calculation, Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) as well as the development of new photovoltaic module concepts. He is an expert in module optimization and loss channel analysis and has been working on the development of several new PV module designs (TPedge, ConstructPV mosaic module, etc.) for more than ten years. He studied industrial engineering and management at the Freiberg University of Mining and Technology. In 2010 he completed his diploma thesis at Fraunhofer ISE and joined the department for PV module technology.


Impact of cell configuration, module design and materials on module power and yield – Holistic loss analysis from cell to system
- Introduction of loss analysis for PV modules and financial motivation - Explanation of major gain and loss channels in PV modules - Application of this knowledge on specific module designs - Analysis of the impact of larger solar cells on modules - Analysis of the impact of the number of busbars for different cell sizes on the cell and the module output
