Swiss-based solar simulator equipment supplier Alfartec has had its new generation of module tester, BlueSky MT240 certified by China’s 3rd party lab, NIM at a ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member at a c-Si module manufacturing plant in China.
Alfarte noted that the qualification of its module testers based on the IEC60904 ed2 with the result that its tester had non-uniformity is largely class A+, the LTI is said to be 10 times better than class A+ over 1 second of illumination, while its spectrum is largely inside the class A+ specifications, according to the company.
The BlueSky-MT240 solar simulator is based on LED and Halogen technologies, providing long flash duration of up to 500 milliseconds and short cycle times for use with newest cell technologies such as PERC, IBC and HJT.
Understanding bifacial’s true potential: technology innovation and technical bankability of bifacial
The deployment of bifacial PV technology is growing rapidly. It has proven to be the most effective solution to reduce levelised energy costs (LCOE) and increase the Investment Rate of Return (IRR) of PV systems, offering substantially improved energy yield compared to the use of standard mono-facial modules. Even though the concept is not new, it has been a niche technology for many years with uncertainties in predicting performance and optimizing installations. Today, bifacial technology is becoming mainstream, with capacity available at the multi-gigawatt scale and with corresponding global deployment of project pipelines. Join this webinar, presented by Andrea Viaro, as he discusses the award-winning Swan bifacial module with transparent backsheet from DuPont, its features, benefits and differences vs. standard glass-glass modules. Jinko Solar’s new bifacial technology innovations will also be highlighted, specifically covering profitability in deployment at utility-scale PV power plants. Andrea will be joined by Dr.Lars Podlowski who will give a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of bifacial PV technology, with a special focus on benefits and risks industry buyers and investors should pay attention to.
