The performance of bifacial photovoltaic modules were characterized. The optical transmittance and short circuit current was measured for front and back side illumination. The temperature coefficients were obtained in order to predict the real power that can be produced in an installation under operating conditions. The internal quantum efficiency distribution was measured to distinguish recombination activity which occurred at the silicon via two-dimensional LBIC method.
