ELECTROLUMINESCENCE OF PV MODULES IEC 82/1062/CD:2016 Explanation When applying an electrical voltage to the PV module, light will be emitted by the materials (EL for short) that is captured by an electroluminescent camera. Purpose Process of taking and editing electroluminescence images of PV modules and obtaining metrics through this in order to be able to assess the quality of the image results. Test device v Camera: Great Eyes GE 2048 2048 FI model v CCD sensor specification: 2048 x 2048 pixel format v Camera specifications: Hermetically sealed vacuum head v Software: Integrated and can be controlled with a PC Freely-selectable current and voltage values Process v The PV module is brought into a darkroom to ensure high-quality images v The image angle to the surface must be observed v The connecting cables (+) (-) are connected correctly to the test object v A foreign light source must not be used v The electrical DC power supply is fed in with a voltage that Isc must reach. In order to ensure identical image quality, the DC power supply that is applied is not changed for the same module types v Test temperature: +20°C to +25°C v A temperature fluctuation of 1°C must not be exceeded during the measurement Electroluminescence image of an intact PV module Electroluminescence image of a faulty PV module 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 | 9001400105
