Leading ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member JinkoSolar said that its entire portfolio of PV modules passed the 96-hour Potential Induced Degradation (“PID”) resistance test to IEC62804 standards.
JinkoSolar said it was the first PV module manufacture in the industry to guarantee anti-PID under ‘double’ 85 condition with the warranty of less than 5% degradation for its PV modules.
The IEC62804 test includes a 96-hour Potential Induced Degradation (“PID”) resistance test under the conditions of 85℃ degrees and 85% relative humidity (“double 85”) at +/-1,000V, with a degradation of less than 5%.
Kangping Chen, JinkoSolar's Chief Executive Officer said, “JinkoSolar's PV solar modules are 100% in compliance with double 85 anti-PID standards and offer the related warranty, which marks a milestone in anti-PID technology development of the solar industry and demonstrates our leading position in the field.”
The company did not say whether the PID tests were conducted exclusively with in-house produced solar cells. JinkoSolar secures around 50% of its solar cells from third-party producers.
