Trina Solar’s PV modules have passed testing and been certified for salt mist, sand blast and for reaching PID requirements by TUV Nord, PVEL and SGS.

TUV Nord certified Trina’s modules as achieving the latest IEC 61701:2011 Severity 1 standards for salt mist corrosion. According to testing conducting by TUV Nord, Trina’s solar modules performed well in ground continuity, wet leakage and insulation resistance. SGS tested the panels in a blowing sand test conducted under DIN EN 60086-2-68 LC2 standards. The results showed little internal impact, certifying Trina Solar modules as being able to perform well in area’s with severe sandstorms and/or strong winds.

The company’s multi-crystalline panels received potential induced degradation (PID) certification from PV Evolution Labs (PVEL). PVEL performed tests on the modules in high stress conditions of 85 degrees Celsius, 85% relative humidity and a voltage range of +/- 1,000V for up to 600 hours. This is the second PID certificate Trina Solar modules have received this year, being certified by TUV SUD in early 2012.

    Now that the PV industry has unquestionably entered a new growth phase, all eyes are on which technologies will win through into the mainstream of PV manufacturing. PERC, n-type, p-type bifacial, heterojunction – all have become familiar terms in the ever-growing constellation of solar cell technologies. The question is which will offer manufacturers what they are looking for in improving efficiencies and cutting costs.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
