Moreover, most certification bodies do not perform regular check ups after the certification has been issued, leaving in iex and praxis many opportunities for bad manufacturers to cut quality corners while on paper holding that certification.

Photovoltaic Solar Testing Specifications- IEC , IEC

Basically, certifications per se do not tell much about the quality of a module. Solar installers that are operating in a highly corrosive atmosphere such as near the sea, the resistance of PV panels against the corrosive effects should be checked. Solar system installers who do installation in areas with heavy snow should definitely use products with an increased load capacity: 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.


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

Photovoltaic PV module safety qualification idc, which was later issued as the European standard EN almost similar. I have check IEC, but did not find the right information.

Or do I also need IEC ? Nowadays many solar manufacturers produce according this requirement. I am a test engineer in SPV lab.

IEC System of Conformity Assessment Schemes

This includes all forces of nature:. An additional test takes the degradation behavior of amorphous silicon due to temperature and irradiance exposure into account. For photovoltaic systems it uec total insulation, which requires a special insulation of the PV modules according to Safety Class II on the basis of the following requirements:.

It is crucial to use PV modules tested against salt mist corrosion certification in case the modules shall be installed near coasts or used for maritime applications. This has been included in the IEC ed.


Photovoltaic Solar Testing Specifications

When I buy a solar panel with IEC certification, does it mean the quality of the solar panel is good? Niclas is absolutely correct.

Iecc second part consists of the requirements for testing. Then only the certification should be confirmed. 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.

When installing solar panels in areas with heavy snow, an increased load capacity of Pa is advisable. Nevertheless, depending on where you want to install your panels, the certifications may still be required as per your national requirements or for example in order to apply for FIT.

Its purpose and methods. IEC tests at the time of applying for certification. Lec you very much.
