IEC tests at the time of applying for certification. An additional test takes the degradation behavior of amorphous silicon due to temperature and irradiance exposure into account. TC 82 – Solar photovoltaic energy systems rss.

Or do I also need IEC ? This has been included in the IEC ed. A special certification for Concentrator PV CPV modules is necessary, because the high concentration of the solar irradiance through lenses or mirrors causes higher stress on the equipment.

Photovoltaic Solar Testing Specifications

The second part consists of the requirements for testing. I have check IEC, but did not find the right information. It is crucial to use PV modules tested against salt mist corrosion certification in case the modules shall een installed near coasts or used for maritime applications. All tests defined in Part 2 are MQTs module quality tests.

Then only the certification should be confirmed. I am a test engineer in SPV lab.

Photovoltaic Solar Testing Specifications- IEC , IEC

Nevertheless, depending on where you want to install your panels, the certifications may still be required as per your em requirements or for example in order to apply for FIT. Basically, certifications per se do not tell much about the quality of a module. Do you need a multi-user copy?

Nowadays many solar manufacturers produce according this requirement. Solar system installers who do installation in areas with heavy snow should definitely use products with an increased load capacity: We accept all major credit cards American Express, Mastercard and VisaPayPal and bank transfers as form of payment.

IEC certifications: IEC 61215, IEC 61646 and more explained

Niclas ci absolutely correct. Related publications IEC For photovoltaic systems it suggests total insulation, which requires a special insulation of the PV modules according to Safety Class II on the basis of the following requirements:. Solar installers that are operating in a highly corrosive atmosphere such as near the sea, the ci of PV panels against the corrosive effects should be checked.

This includes all forces of nature:. Part 1 lists general requirements, Part 1-x specifics for each PV technology and Part 2 defines testing. Its purpose and methods. This edition of IEC includes cwi following significant technical changes with respect to the second edition of IEC This standard is intended to apply to all terrestrial flat plate module materials such as crystalline silicon module types as well as thin-film modules.

Photovoltaic PV module safety qualificationwhich was later issued as the European standard EN almost similar.

When installing solar panels in areas with heavy snow, an increased load capacity of Pa is advisable. The certifying authority should conduct the same tests on representative samples after the commercial production has started to confirm the quality on the commercially produced item.


The following test report forms are related: Preview Abstract IEC Moreover, most certification bodies do not perform regular check ups after the certification has been issued, leaving in theory and praxis many opportunities for bad manufacturers to cut quality corners while on paper holding that certification.

Thank you very much. When I buy a solar panel with IEC certification, does it mean the quality of the solar panel is good? The objective of this test sequence is to determine the electrical and thermal characteristics of the module and to show, 6121 far as possible within reasonable constraints of cost and time, 6121 the module is capable of withstanding prolonged exposure in climates described in the scope.

When testing, the prepared and submitted modules undergo HALTs highly accelerated life tests that are not representative of standard real-world conditions.

The IEC standard specifies the criteria for the design qualification and type approval of concentrator photovoltaic modules and assemblies suitable for long-term operation in general open-air climates. Our prices are in Swiss francs CHF.
