Module Technology

Kicking off the heterojunction era

In their never-ending search for solar technologies that can produce more energy at lower costs, solar manufacturers are moving forward with a wealth of different approaches in mass production. Among the more established of these is n-type heterojunction, which is the route chosen by China’s Risen Energy. In this pv magazine Webinar, we take a closer look at a heterojunction technology and some of the innovations behind Risen’s Hyper-ion module series, and how these create a long-term advantage, lowering costs by generating more energy over a project’s lifetime.

Integrating TOPCon: PV markets and systems

The new year will see n-type solar cell technologies, and tunnel-oxide passivated contact (TOPCon) in particular, build on a successful year in 2022 and continue to grow their share in the global PV module market. In this pv magazine Webinar, we’ll hear exactly how this growth is expected to shape up in 2023 and the following years from a top market analyst. And then we’ll take a closer look at the technology behind TOPCon with module maker Trina Solar, who will take us through the workings of its latest Vertex N module series, and the process of integrating these modules into a PV system to ensure all their potential advantages are best realized in the field.

Hail risk in solar: Identify, quantify, and mitigate

In this pv magazine Webinar, we will examine how solar project hail risk is increasing due to a perfect storm of market and technology changes including sharing lessons about and best practices for identifying, quantifying, and mitigating severe hail risk based on project location and fielded technology.

Adiós, PERC; hola, TopCon

La tecnología TopCon y otras tecnologías de tipo N han dado el salto este año hasta convertirse en la corriente principal de fabricación fotovoltaica. En este pv magazine Webinar analizaremos, de mano de S&P Global, el crecimiento y las tendencias del mercado de los módulos de tipo N y de la tecnología TopCon, así como sus características técnicas. Junto con JinkoSolar, presentaremos su módulo más potente de tipo N, el Tiger Neo, con potencia de hasta 620 Wp, y la empresa compartirá sus planes de expansión de la fabricación con TopCon.

Understanding Australia’s tantalizing battery market

In this pv magazine Webinar, we will share insights on how battery design and engineering platform pvDesign is being used, having recently been expanded to include AC-coupled battery storage systems.

New entrants bring new perspectives: Hybrid inverter series for C&I applications

In the rapidly changing PV inverter market, innovation is front and central. From the ever-growing array of smart features to monitoring, as well as integrating storage and providing support for EV charging and heat pumps, new products are bringing fresh competition delivering complete solutions. In this pv magazine Webinar, we will learn about Solinteg’s 20-50 kW hybrid inverter and its many smart features ahead of its market launch. A special treat, the outfit will be opening the doors of its lab in Slovakia and allowing us a sneak peek into the reliability testing processes performed there.

TOPCon heads to the rooftop

This year has seen solar manufacturers begin what is shaping up to be a major shift toward n-type technologies, and investors are keen to see these technologies in action in ‘real world’ installations. In this pv magazine Webinar, we take a look at the latest in TOPCon technology from one of n-type’s earliest backers, and share case study details from one developer already installing these modules and monitoring their performance in the field.

Nuevas Tecnologías para la optimización del diseño electrónico y mecánico de plantas FV: Menos Capex, Menor LCOE

En este pv magazine Webinar, Trina Solar presentará la tecnología de los módulos, incluyendo las características de las nuevas células rectangulares, y los detalles de funcionamiento de las células tipo N. También se discutirán las ventajas asociadas a realizar diseños de string con módulos de bajo Voc y la compatibilidad de estos módulos con los Trackers e inversores actuales.

Learning from PV module manufacturing nonconformities

In this pv magazine Webinar we will examine nonconformities reported during the PV module manufacturing process. We will define manufacturing nonconformities, analyze which ones are frequently found in production, and investigate on their distribution along the manufacturing line.

Shaping the future of PV manufacturing

Recent years have seen silicon wafers, solar cells and PV modules introduced to the market in a range of different sizes, as manufacturers seek cost optimization all along the supply chain. And though this move away from standardized dimensions has caused a few disruptions, the industry is generally keen to realize potential for cost reductions where it exists and has been quick to embrace larger format products. In this pv magazine Webinar, we’ll take a closer look at Trina Solar’s latest innovation, producing rectangular shaped cells that promise to revolutionize the industry by packing more watts into shipping containers and onto rooftops and racking systems, bringing big BOS savings for project owners and developers.
