Vibration test of PV modules (PHARE excellence equipment)

Methodology

Reproduce the dynamic mechanical stresses undergone by a PV module throughout its life cycle

Caracteristics

Studied load :
Up to 450 kg and 3 m x 3 m x 3 m
Frequency range : up to 250 Hz
Excitation : sine, random, seismic
Acceleration : up to 10g (depending on the installed weight and the position of its centre of inertia in relation to the exciter)

Expertise

Dynamic characterisation, identification and check of structures within the linear and non-linear fields.
Installation of dynamic measurement and observation instruments, and installation of signal acquisition and/or processing systems.
