PV+Test 2.0: Hanwha module evaluated as good


In the latest round of testing, the polycrystalline module HSL60P6-PB-1-245 (HSL 60 Poly) from Hanwha SolarOne overcame the first hurdle of the PV+Test with the grade "good."

Among numerous other positive readings, it became immediately clear in the test laboratory that the polycrystalline HSL60P6-PB-1-245 (HSL 60 Poly) module passed the more stringent aging tests, the PID test and the thorough examination of its performance parameters.

Modules received from Hanwha's initial delivery batch of the new module series to Europe in May were chosen and tested. According to information provided by the company, 300 MW of this new module product have been sold worldwide since that date.

The modules that were tested each had 60 polycrystalline cells, and the series also features a couple of other module types: there is a black variant and also modules that have 72 cells. This newer HSL Series replaces the SF series and, according to Hanwha, the new modules are lighter in weight, more compact, and possess anti-PID functionality as well as improved cell technology with better weak light behavior.

In addition, they are available in higher performance classes. PV+Test is an independent module test from the German safety standards authority TU?V Rhineland and Solar- praxis AG, publisher of pv magazine. The modules are purchased independently on the market so that any suggestion of manipulation is ruled out. These chosen modules are then tested in accordance with a procedure approved by an acknowledged industrial consortium. The test provides information with regard to aging stability, performance, electrical safety and documentation.
