Compared to standard modules, thehalf-cell module has significant advantages in system applications. First of all, with half-cell technology, the module power can be 5 to 10W higher than traditional design, and this can reduce the system cost with higher module efficiency. Secondly, unit solar cell current reduces by 50% with half-cell technology and the cell temperature during operation will drop by 20~25″ƒ compared to the standard design, which alleviates the hot spot effect using thehybrid mode with series-connected after parallel-connected. In addition, the size of half-cell is smaller than that of the conventional cell, which means that the damaged area also will be smaller for half-cells if cracks occurr under the influence of external force. At the same time, the traditional complex circuit is optimized by using the distributed junction box design, and the power loss can be further reduced in a cross layout of installation.
The installed capacity of global PV forecast will exceed 100GW in 2018. TheEuropean market will achieve a growth rate of 35%, and continue to lead the global PV market.
