pv magazine test


Starting in 2011, pv magazine published extensive tests on more than 20 modules in collaboration with Solarpraxis and TÜV Rheinland, under the label PV+Test.

Now: pv magazine has updated the test for 2017, offering for the first time 100% thirdparty witnessing of the process. This is a first in the PV industry, which, until now, has conducted testing by one party with no outside expert witnesses.
The test will involve a comprehensive series of testing procedures, including the following:
– PID (Potential Induced Degradation) resistance
– Low irradiance and temperature behavior
– Outdoor test
– Optional: LID (Light Induced Degradation) resistance, especially relevant to PERC modules

The added value of pv magazine test:
– An economic way of demonstrating your reliability to investors
– Measurements performed in a 1st class laboratory in China
– Expert third-party witnessing of all testing procedures by Clean Energy Associates, a well-known advisory firm that has audited more than 125 manufacturers in the industry.
