Abstract

Semi-rigid solar array is an efficient energy system on the surface of stratospheric airship for utilizing the solar energy which we believe has succeeded in providing some useful results for conceptual design. Their core consists of: To improve the flexible of rigid solar cells, a multilayer composite structure of solar cells to stratospheric airship was designed, in which rigid solar cell of encapsulation as the surface to asymmetric honeycomb core. A Glass fiber ribbon was used to improve the stiffness characteristic of the structure. It decreases the bending modulus of structural forms by 97.59% and 38.03% deflection increment. Then the different thickness of honeycomb core for the multilayered structure under pressure was analyzed by FEM( finite element method) software. Considering the quality of the whole structure, the article finally gives the conclusion of the optimal thickness of honeycomb core with more detailed descriptions. In some way, our study can provide helpful support for further engineering applications of photovoltaic cell multilayer composite structure on the surface of stratospheric airship.
