07 oct In-Situ PV modules mobile testing unit Non classé 0 Comments By gensun-admin GenSun is the first French O&M Contractor to offer in-situ testing of PV modules to adapt itself to market trends and to keep bringing to its clients worldclass services. The PV market is worldwide. Before they reach their final destination, PV modules are shipped over long distances and manipulated on numerous occasions. One can no longer be satisfied with quality controls carried-out at the manufacturing site: the panels can be subjected to shocks or mishandling during transport or else have been packed inappropriately, which can all entail damages. Often invisible, these hidden defects can quickly have an adverse effect on the production of the plant, meaning that the plant’s PR can no longer be reached. More and more manufacturers come to the market, some – including established ones – subcontracting part of their production to OEM outfits whose QA norms and processes are unknown. In order to convince bankers and insurers of their projects’ viability, developers/investors must make sure, more thane ver, that the modules delivered to their building sites are absolutely flawless. Thanks to its mobile testing unit, GenSun can verify in-situ: - the STC nominal power of the modules (I-V curve); - the presence of hidden defects such as microcracks or dead areas; - eventual diodes problems and hot spots. The measurements are automatically saved to a data base. A detailed report which compiles all results in a single document is generated automatically for further analysis and can be transmitted quickly through the autonomous internet connection of our mobile testing unit. These tests can obviously also be carried-out on modules of plants in operation whose Owner/Asset Manager suspects an under-performance due to an abnormal deterioration of the modules. Electroluminescence tests can even be carried-out without dismantling the modules thanks to a remote high definition camera hooked-up to the mobile testing unit via an umbilical. With this service offering, GenSun provides PV professionals with a reliable and high accuracy in-situ testing solution in either construction or operation phase. gensun-admin Comments are closed.
