Terrestrial photovoltaic (PV) modules - Design qualification and type approval - Part 1-1: Special requirements for testing of crystalline silicon photovoltaic (PV) Modules

IEC 61215-1-1:2016 lays down requirements for the design qualification and type approval of terrestrial photovoltaic modules suitable for long-term operation in general open air climates, as defined in IEC 60721-2-1. This standard is intended to apply to all crystalline silicon terrestrial flat plate modules. The object 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. This standard defines PV technology dependent modifications to the testing procedures and requirements per IEC 61215-1:2016 and IEC 61215-2:2016.

Modules photovoltaïques (PV) pour applications terrestres - Qualification de la conception et homologation - Partie 1-1: Exigences particulières d'essai des modules photovoltaïques (PV) au silicium cristallin

L'IEC 61215-1-1:2016 établit les exigences pour la qualification de la conception et l'homologation des modules photovoltaïques (PV) pour applications terrestres et pour une utilisation de longue durée dans les climats généraux à l'air libre, définis dans l'IEC 60721-2-1. La présente norme est destinée à s'appliquer à tous les modules à plaque plane au silicium cristallin pour applications terrestres. L'objet de cette séquence d'essais est de déterminer les caractéristiques électriques et thermiques du module et de montrer, dans la mesure du possible avec des contraintes de coût et de temps raisonnables, que le module est apte à supporter une exposition prolongée aux climats définis dans le domaine d'application. La présente norme définit les modifications dépendantes de la technologie photovoltaïque, apportées aux exigences et procédures d'essai de l'IEC 61215-1:2016 et de l'IEC 61215-2:2016.

Prizemni fotonapetostni (PV) moduli iz kristalnega silicija - Ocena zasnove in odobritev tipa - 1-1. del: Posebne zahteve za preskušanje fotonapetostnih (PV) modulov iz kristalnega silicija

Ta del standarda IEC 61215 določa zahteve IEC glede ocene zasnove in tipske odobritve prizemnih fotonapetostnih modulov, primernih za dolgotrajno uporabo v običajnih okoljih na prostem, kot je opredeljeno v standardu IEC 60721-2-1. Ta standard je namenjen za uporabo za vse ploščate prizemne module iz kristalnega silicija.
Ta standard se ne uporablja za module za uporabo s koncentrirano sončno svetlobo, lahko pa se uporablja za nizkokoncentracijske module (1 do 3 sončni viri). Za nizkokoncentracijske module se vsi preskusi opravijo s tokovno, napetostno in močnostno ravnjo, ki so pričakovane pri načrtovani koncentraciji.
Namen tega preskusnega zaporedja je določiti električne in toplotne lastnosti modula ter prikazati (kot je mogoče v razumnih stroškovnih in časovnih omejitvah), da je modul zmožen prenesti učinke dolgotrajne izpostavljenosti v okoljih, opisanih v področju uporabe. Dejanska pričakovana življenjska doba tako kvalificiranih modulov je odvisna od njihove zasnove, okolja uporabe in pogojev delovanja. Ta standard določa spremembe preskusnih postopkov in zahtev v skladu s standardoma IEC 61215-1:2016 in IEC 61215-2:2016, ki so odvisne od prizemne fotonapetostne tehnologije.
