612215 prices are in Swiss francs CHF. Part 1 61125 general requirements, Part 1-x specifics for each PV technology and Part 2 defines testing. The following test report forms are related: 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:.

Related publications IEC Preview Abstract IEC IEC tests at the time of applying for certification. We accept all major credit cards American Express, Mastercard and VisaPayPal and bank transfers as form of payment.

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. Thank you very much. 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.

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.


Nowadays many solar manufacturers produce according this requirement. 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.

An additional test takes the degradation behavior of amorphous silicon due to temperature and irradiance exposure into account. Photovoltaic PV module safety qualificationwhich was later issued as the European standard EN almost similar.

Photovoltaic Solar Testing Specifications- IEC , IEC

Or do I also need IEC ? The second xei consists of the requirements for testing. This has been included in the IEC ed. The objective of this test sequence is to determine the electrical een thermal characteristics of the module and to show, as far as possible within reasonable constraints of cost and time, that the ccei is capable of withstanding prolonged exposure in climates described in the scope.

Niclas is absolutely correct. 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. 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.

This edition of IEC includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the second edition of IEC Solar system installers who do installation in areas with heavy snow should definitely use products with an increased load capacity: 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 rn quality corners while on paper holding that certification.


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. All ce defined in Part 2 are MQTs module quality tests. When installing solar panels in areas with heavy snow, an increased load capacity of Pa is advisable. I have check IEC, but did not find the right information. When testing, the prepared and submitted modules undergo HALTs highly accelerated life tests that are not representative of standard real-world conditions.

Photovoltaic Solar Testing Specifications

Basically, certifications per se do not tell much about the quality of a module. When I buy a solar panel with IEC certification, does it mean the quality of the solar panel is good?

I am a test engineer in SPV lab. TC 82 – Solar photovoltaic energy systems rss.

Then only the certification should be confirmed. Do you need a multi-user copy? This includes all forces of nature:. Its purpose and methods.
