Trina Solar opens PV module testing center of excellence


Trina Solar has opened its own center of excellence to ensure a high level of quality assurance and precision testing of its PV modules. Located at the company’s headquarters in Changzhou, the 7200-square-meter facility supports a comprehensive range of indoor and outdoor tests, including product certification processes, material reliability tests for module products, highly accelerated stress tests, and material evaluation and research.

The center is equipped with a suite of advanced testing equipment comparable to the toolsets found in recognized world-class independent testing labs, including a top-of-the-range impulse simulator, steady-state simulator, and state-of-the-art silicon material testing gear. It also houses chambers that can assess the effects of damp heat, thermal cycle, humidity freeze, thermal shock, and UV exposure, to ensure the capability of Trina Solar’s modules to withstand prolonged exposure in extreme climate conditions.

Equipment and testing procedures at the center are in accord with the rigorous standards of UL1703, IEC61215 and IEC61730.

The company said that the operational features and scale of the center facilitate the continuous performance of in-house quality assessments, including a highly accelerated stress test to evaluate modules and material performance after certifications are received from independent product certification organizations.
