Customized photovoltaic module test chambers
The problem of global warming has helped to increase attention to the protection of the planet and the search for renewable energy sources, among which solar energy is considered one of the most promising. In this sector, solar panels are among the most used tools to “capture” solar energy and are therefore at the center of severe tests to study wear and aging.
In addition to the standard line, ACS is able to offer customized solutions thanks to its more than 60 years of experience in designing customized environmental simulation chambers, its technical know-how and the close attention given to the requests of all our customers.
Example of a chamber customized according to the specifications requested by the customer.
The lab where the chamber is being used analyzes the photovoltaic modules with the aim of achieving two main objectives:
- evaluate the quality of the modules
- determine their degree of reliability and service life
The certification tests are done on photovoltaic panels according to the following regulations in force:
- CEI EN 61215 – Class CEI 82-8 – CT 82 – "Crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules for land applications"
- CEI EN 61646 "Thin film photovoltaic modules for land applications"
The climatic chamber carries out tests on photovoltaic modules with the controlling of temperature and humidity parameters (environmental parameters from -40°C to 110°C for temperature and 0% to 90% for relative humidity), thermal fatigue tests and freezing tests.
The software for this type of chamber is an application that includes all the functions based on the specifications requested by the customer. The chamber has a built-in control panel for controlling and managing its functions. The chamber can also be controlled remotely using the WinKratos software or an equivalent application.
ACS can provide customized solutions that are adapted to the requests of every customer. Thanks to its accurate analysis of testing needs and highly specialized technical consultancy, ACS designs and manufactures environmental simulation chambers in the configuration most suitable for meeting the customer’s testing needs.
