MAXIMUM POWER DETERMINATION (MQT 02) | DIN EN 61215-2:2017-08 Purpose Determining the highest output of the PV modules before and after environmental impact tests. The defined value is used as the starting point for the incoming goods inspection and processing complaints. Test device BBA sunlight simulator according to the IEC 60904-9 standard B B A Spectrum Irradiance Homogeneity Process v Comparison object is a PV reference module according to IEC 60904-2 that is stored in a darkroom with UV-reduced light and at a constant temperature of +25°C (±2), therefore its photovoltaic parameters are stable v The PV reference module and the test module are mounted in a recording device that is vertical to the radiation direction v The voltage curve is measured according to IEC 60904-1 Standard v Radiation strength: 1,000 W/m² Test parameter v Test temperature: +25°C (±5) v Measurement period: 10 ms v Test period: 2 minutes v Possibility of low-light measurement from 100 W/m² to 1,000 W/m² in increments of 100 IBC SOLAR AG | Am Hochgericht 10, 96231 Bad Staffelstein, Germany | Phone +49 (0)9573-92 24 0 | firstname.lastname@example.org | www.ibc-solar.com As of: 10.2018 | 9001400102
STATIC MECHANICAL LOAD TEST (MQT 16) | DIN EN 61215-2:2017-08 Purpose Determining the suitability of the PV module to withstand a static minimum load. Test device Loading table v Test rig with a frame made from extruded aluminium profiles for absorbing the mechanical test loads v 12 pneumatically-controlled test cylinders v Vacuum cups at the ends of the cylinders enable pressure and suction loads v Force measurement frame with 4 force sensors to calculate the force exerted on the module/the holder v Control software to calculate the total force based on signals from the 4 force sensors Process v Assembling the PV module with the holder stipulated by the manufacturer. If there are numerous attachment variants, all of these variants will be tested v The design load stipulated by the manufacturer will be applied • Positive design load → Download pressure • Negative design load → Upward tension v The same procedure is also applied to the reverse side Standard v Minimum test force: 2,400 Pa (≙244.73 kg/m²) Test parameter v Test temperature: +25°C (±5) v Load duration: 1 hour v Repetition: 3 cycles v Load evenness: ±5% Tests before and after v Visual inspection (DIN EN 61215/10.1) the inspection v Measurement to determine the maximum output with electroluminescence imaging (DIN EN 61215/10.2) v Testing the insulation resistance subject to water submergence (DIN EN 61215/10.15) IBC SOLAR AG | Am Hochgericht 10, 96231 Bad Staffelstein, Germany | Phone +49 (0)9573-92 24 0 | email@example.com | www.ibc-solar.com As of: 10.2018 | 9001400103
