Data on temporal changes in the specific power coefficient and specific cost of solar photoconverters used in space vehicles is analyzed. Approximation formulae for forecasting the changes are suggested. A new criterion that takes into account the cost and mass characteristics of spacecraft solar batteries is proposed
Keywords: specific cost of solar photoconverters
