Full-transparency quality assurance – new and enhanced testing, monitoring, and material controls
Claims of high-quality, highly durable solar modules are regularly made by manufacturers, and warranties are being extended. But how are quality assurance practices keeping step with the claims being made? And how can durable, high performance PV modules be produced while new cell and module technologies, formats and materials are being adopted at an ever-increasing rate?
A new Quality Controlled PV program from TÜV Rheinland is looking to open a new chapter in quality control practices, and Q CELLS is the first manufacturer in the industry to be certified. Quality Controlled PV involves an enhanced, three-level testing process, coupled to fully transparent production and materials monitoring.
By taking modules out of their comfort zone and shining a light on what enhanced quality control practices on manufacturing lines and across the supply chain, the Quality Controlled PV program aims to provide the hard data and continuous monitoring required to have confidence in PV modules and warranties.
In this pv magazine Webinar, learn how the Quality Controlled PV program works and what it means for long-term solar module performance.
pv magazine Webinar content
- Factors that drove and inspired the development of the Quality Controlled PV program
- The catalogue of tests carried out under the Quality Controlled PV program and how they go beyond industry standard-type approval and safety qualifications
- How quality surveillance measures and material and supplier monitoring is carried out under the Quality Controlled PV program
- How the improved testing standards and monitoring can help to improve the longevity and performance of solar projects
We look forward to you joining the webinar and the discussion with TÜV and Q CELLS experts!
