The paper examines the reliability behavior of a large solar battery consisting of several thousand solar cells. The output power was chosen as the reliability index reflecting changes in the battery when many individual cells fail. More precisely, the reliability index is the expected (mean) output power at a given operation time or the expected operation time at which the output power will decrease a given amount. The main goal of the reliability simulation was to obtain a 'bundle' of sample curves representing the random decrease of output power.
