PID is responsible for accelerated PV module performance degradation (maximum power point (MPP) and open circuit voltage (Voc) and reduced shunt resistance, caused by moisture permeation and thermal creeping of the glass. 

Solution

CONSERV E 360 (POE) encapsulants exhibit virtually zero Potential Induced Degradation (PID). A unique method of crosslinking that maintains the fine balance between adhesion strength of the encapsulant, with its degree of cross linking. Its unique formulation has also been able to withstand thermal creep at 105 degree Celsius, for 250 hours. It has delivered protection against PID, with extremely low moisture transmission (MVTR.) The encapsulant material resistant to PID helps in reducing power loses on the solar power plants when PV panels with high voltage stress face hot and humid climatic conditions. 

Applications

PID protection encapsulant material for glass/glass and glass to backsheet.

Platform

POE – CONSERV E 360 is UL Certified – E 353124, and has an ultra -short lamination time that adds value by decreasing lamination time for the manufacturer, while continuing to offer durability under extreme climatic conditions. CONSERV A 360-14 FC: UL (UL 94, UL 746A & UL746B), IEC 61215, RoHS, 2250 Hrs. DHT TUV Declaration.

Availability

June 2018, onwards.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
