IEC tests at the time of applying for certification.

Photovoltaic PV module safety qualificationwhich was later issued as the European standard EN almost similar. It is crucial to use PV modules tested against salt mist kec certification in case the modules shall be installed near coasts or used for maritime applications. Basically, certifications per se do not tell much about the quality of a module.

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.

Its purpose and methods. 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.



Solar installers that are operating in a highly corrosive atmosphere such as near the sea, the resistance of PV panels against kec corrosive effects should be checked. I am a test engineer in SPV lab.

IEC System of Conformity Assessment Schemes

irc 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:. The second part consists of the requirements for testing.

Solar system installers who do installation in areas with heavy snow should definitely use products with an increased load capacity: Nowadays many solar manufacturers 616646 according this requirement. When testing, the prepared and submitted modules undergo HALTs highly accelerated life tests that are not representative of standard real-world conditions.

IEC Standard – Home

Thank you very much. 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.

An additional test takes the degradation behavior of amorphous silicon due 61466 temperature and irradiance exposure into account. Or do I also need IEC ? When I buy a solar panel with IEC certification, does it mean the quality of the solar panel is good? 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.

Niclas is absolutely correct.

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.

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

This has been included in the IEC ed. This includes all forces of nature:.
