As a superstar product based on Cheetah technology, Swan bifacial module with transparent backsheet , has already achieved several breakthroughs in power, annual electricity yield, reliability and LCOE, leading further development of bifacial module technology. Combined with the high-efficiency Cheetah Mono bifacial cell and DuPont Clear DuPont™ Tedlar®-based backsheet, Swan modules can achieve power output up to 415W on the front side and up to 25% power gain from the rear side with a 30 year power warranty.
At the same time, the installation of Swan module is more convenient than dual glass type due to its lighter weight and conventional installation method, which effectively reduces BOS cost and minimizes LCOE, resulting in a higher return on investment. Thereafter, Swan bifacial module with transparent backsheet successfully won the 2019 Intersolar Photovoltaic Award.
Launched alongside at SNEC, Swan N-type Bifacial module with transparent backsheet has achieved power output of up to 425W on the front side and 5%-30% power gain from the rear side. With adoption of advanced N-type HOT technology, the conversion efficiency of Swan N-type Bifacial module has reached 20.76%. Combined with multi-busbar cell technology, Swan N-type module has lower internal current heat losses and more uniform current-collecting ability.
It is worth noting that Swan Plus with power output up to 460W is also showcased at SNEC, breaking the industry record of module conversion efficiency and becoming the center of the attraction. Based on the combination of several advanced technology, the power gain from the rear side has reached from 5% to 30%. Moreover, the application of low-resistance connection technology effectively mitigates the hot spot effect caused by reverse current, building a solid technological foundation for the reliable operation of modules during lifetime.
Chen Kangping, JinkoSolar CEO, commented: “Industry transformation and technology revolution are reshaping the global PV business. JinkoSolar is honored to be the first mover leading the whole industry towards a new era. In the future, we will continue to promote technological innovation and accelerate the step of the global PV industry toward grid parity."
