Industrial Manufacturing Line For PV Module Prototyping

Methodology

A 15 MW industrial solar module line with world class industrial equipment is used to manufacture innovative PV modules for mass and niche markets.

Caracteristics

*Dedicated to all types of cells
*semi-automatic line operated by 8 persons at maximum throughput

Expertise

Defect analysis, modules test according to the norms EN61215 and EN61730, special R&D tests with special conditions, indoor PID tests, performances measurement with a top class flash tester equiped with specials and optimized recipe for capacitive cells,
performances measurement at desired temperature using a compatible module climate chamber

Results

A small series of photovoltaic modules has been produced on this platform, together with the industrial partner Mondragon. These modules have passed without problem durability tests according to IEC 61215.

Applications

- Heterojunction and homojunction cells
- Half cells
- special modules design for specific application - full size module prototyping and pre-series
