Photovoltaic Solar Testing Specifications

Its purpose and methods. Solar system installers who do installation in areas with heavy snow should definitely use products with an increased load capacity: 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.

Photovoltaic PV module safety qualificationwhich was later issued as the European standard EN almost similar. The certifying authority should 6164 the same tests on representative samples after the commercial production has started to confirm the quality on the commercially produced item.

Basically, certifications per se do not tell much about the quality of a module. IEC tests at the time ied applying for certification. 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.


Nowadays many solar manufacturers produce according this requirement. This has been included in the IEC ed. Niclas is absolutely correct. An additional test takes the degradation behavior isc amorphous silicon due to temperature and irradiance exposure into account. Moreover, most certification bodies do kec 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.

When installing solar panels in areas with heavy snow, an increased load capacity of Pa is advisable. 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.

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.

IEC certifications: IEC 61215, IEC 61646 and more explained

I have check IEC, but did not find the right information. Then only the certification should be confirmed.


When testing, the prepared and submitted modules undergo HALTs highly accelerated life tests that are not representative of standard real-world conditions. For photovoltaic systems it suggests total insulation, which requires a special insulation of the PV modules according to Safety Class II 616466 the basis of the following requirements:.

The second part consists of the requirements for testing. I iev a test engineer in SPV 6146. Or do I also need IEC ?

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. When I buy a solar panel with IEC certification, does it mean the quality of the solar panel is good? Thank you very much. This includes all forces of nature:.
