Thank you very much. Niclas is absolutely correct. Basically, certifications per se do not tell much about the quality of a module. IEC tests at the time of applying for certification.

When testing, the prepared and submitted modules undergo HALTs highly accelerated life tests that are not representative of standard real-world conditions.

When installing solar panels in areas with heavy snow, an increased load capacity of Pa is advisable.

Photovoltaic Solar Testing Specifications

Nowadays many solar manufacturers produce according this requirement. Photovoltaic 616446 module safety qualificationwhich was later issued as the European standard EN almost similar. I have check IEC, but did not find the right information.


When I buy a solar panel with IEC certification, does it mean the quality of the solar panel is good? Its purpose and methods. 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.

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.

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

Moreover, most certification bodies do not perform regular check ups after iwc certification has been issued, leaving in theory and praxis many opportunities for bad manufacturers to cut quality corners while on paper holding that certification. This includes all forces of nature:.

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. 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: An additional test takes the degradation behavior of amorphous silicon due to temperature and irradiance exposure into account.


Or do I also need IEC ?

IEC System of Conformity Assessment Schemes

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.

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 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.

Then only the certification should be confirmed. This has been included in the IEC ed.
