Module-scale Impact and Vibration Test bench

Methodology

Pendulum and Bag-dropping impact test bench with a wide range of shock energies and with an Eigen frequencies analyser for vibrational behavior of PV modules and their mounting system

Caracteristics

*Max PV module size : 1200mm x 2000mm
*Pendulum test from 1J to 120J impact energies
*Bag dropping test till 1200J
*Motorized lift and module placement
*Vibrational acquisition system
*Modal analyser with image reconstruction

Expertise

*Mechanics and Building Integrated PV (BIPV)
*Mechanical modeling of PV modules

Results

*Mechanical qualification of frameless PV module
*Vibrational analysis of flexible module against hail equivalent impact
