Niclas is absolutely correct. All tests defined in Part 2 are MQTs module quality tests. This includes all forces of nature:. Solar system installers who do installation in areas with heavy snow should definitely use products with an increased load capacity: The IEC standard specifies the criteria for the design qualification ceu type approval of concentrator photovoltaic modules and assemblies suitable for long-term operation in general open-air climates. Cel 1 lists rn requirements, Part 1-x specifics for each PV technology and Part 2 defines testing.

This standard is intended to apply to all terrestrial flat plate module materials such as crystalline silicon module types as well as thin-film modules. When testing, the prepared and submitted modules undergo HALTs highly accelerated life tests that are not representative of standard real-world conditions.

Photovoltaic Solar Testing Specifications

This edition of IEC includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the second edition of IEC Basically, certifications per se do not tell much about the quality of a module. The certifying authority should conduct the same tests on representative samples after the commercial production has started to confirm the quality on the commercially produced item. We accept all major credit cards American Express, Mastercard and Visa ceei, PayPal and bank transfers as form of payment.


A dn certification for Concentrator PV CPV modules is necessary, because the high concentration of the solar irradiance through lenses or mirrors causes higher stress on the equipment.

Moreover, most certification bodies do not perform regular check ups after the certification has been issued, leaving in theory cel praxis many opportunities for bad manufacturers to cut quality corners while on paper holding that certification.

Then only the certification should be confirmed.

I am a test engineer in SPV lab. Its purpose and methods. Preview Abstract IEC It is crucial to use PV modules tested against salt mist corrosion certification in case the modules shall be installed near coasts or used for maritime applications. The second part consists of the requirements for testing. The following test report forms are related: TC 82 – Solar photovoltaic energy systems rss.

Do you need a multi-user copy? Or do I also need IEC ?

IEC certifications: IEC 61215, IEC 61646 and more explained

Nowadays many solar manufacturers produce according this requirement. Related publications IEC I have check IEC, but did not find the right information. IEC tests at the time of applying for certification.


An enn test takes the degradation behavior of amorphous silicon due to temperature and irradiance exposure into account. This has been included in the IEC ed.

Photovoltaic Solar Testing Specifications- IEC , IEC

When I buy a solar panel with IEC certification, does it mean the quality of the solar panel is good? Solar installers that are operating in a highly corrosive atmosphere such as near the sea, the resistance of PV panels against the corrosive effects should be checked.

Nevertheless, depending on where you want to install your panels, the certifications may still be required as per your national requirements or for example in order to apply for FIT.

The objective of this test sequence is to determine the electrical and thermal characteristics of the module and to show, as far as possible within reasonable constraints of cost and time, that the module is capable of withstanding prolonged exposure in climates described in the scope.

6121 PV module safety qualificationwhich was later issued as the European standard EN almost similar. Thank you very much. When installing solar panels in areas with heavy snow, an increased load capacity of Pa is advisable.
