Hanwha Q CELLS’ Product Portfolio Successfully Clears Fraunhofer CSP Test

The company’s modules were tested by Germany’s Fraunhofer CSP and found to display negligible power loss during high-temperature testing conditions of up to 75 degrees Celsius.

Hanwha Q CELLS, one of the largest solar cell and module manufacturers in the world, confirmed that its leading range of solar modules have delivered exceptional performance in a recent test conducted by Fraunhofer Center for Silicon Photovoltaics (CSP) to benchmark light and elevated temperature induced degradation (LeTID) in solar cells.

Fraunhofer CSP Test

The company’s modules were tested by Germany’s Fraunhofer CSP and found to display negligible power loss during high-temperature testing conditions of up to 75 degrees Celsius.

It’s both half-cell monocrystalline Q.PEAK DUO modules and multicrystalline Q.PLUS modules exhibited market-leading anti-LeTID performances among the 9 module types tested (comprising 7 mono-Si and 2 multicrystalline silicon modules), including modules produced by various leading solar brands.

The final test batch included 2 modules from each category, resulting in 18 different measurements.

The Fraunhofer CSP results further demonstrate the reliability and durability that the company‘s Q.PEAK DUO (Cz-Si) and Q.PLUS (mc-Si) solar modules deliver, with both module types exhibiting <1% power loss during Fraunhofer CSP’s stringent testing procedure.

It’s monocrystalline (Cz-Si) and multicrystalline (mc-Si) solar modules performed favorably when exposed to accelerated LeTID test conditions (CID — current-induced degradation at 75°C and operation in maximum power point (MPP) mode) compared to other solar module brands tested.

Commenting on the Fraunhofer CSP test results, Hanwha Q CELLS CTO Daniel Jeong said, “The performance of our Q.PEAK DUO and Q.PLUS modules demonstrates Hanwha Q CELLS’ continued commitment to tackling the toughest challenges in the industry and highlights the importance of focusing our R&D efforts in areas where we can deliver the most added value to our customers.”
