JinkoSolar Tiger Neo Modules Get An N-type Ultra-Efficiency Upgrade

Global Solar Module major JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. has launched a new series of ultra-efficient 2021 Flagship Tiger Neo Modules. Taking the push to mainstream large modules in the solar sector further, the new Tiger Neo adopts N-type TOPCon technology with further enhancements in performance, power, energy density, and reliability to deliver a maximum power output of up to 620W. Conversion efficiency has been claimed at upto 22.30%.

Better Power Generation Performance

JinkoSolar’s N-type TOPCon technology is about 5% to 6% more efficient than mono PERC offering 3% to 4% more energy generation, according to the firm. The Tiger Neo is mass produced from 182mm wafers, and features Multi-Busbar (MBB) and half-cut cell technology to reduce internal resistance loss, and the circular solder strip design increases optical gain to ensure the ultra-high efficiency of up to 22.30%.

Higher Bifacial Factor

Tiger Neo’s bifacial factor of up to 85% is a great advantage due to its 5% to 15% higher energy yield compared to conventional P-type bifacial modules in its life-time period. A higher bifacial factor also improves its power generation capacity and power generation efficiency.

Lower Degradation and Longer Warranty

Thanks to less LID and LeTID risks, JinkoSolar is providing an industry-leading 30-year linear power output guarantee. The first-year degradation has been claimed to be less than 1% and power output is guaranteed to be no less than 87.40% of the nominal power output after 30 years.

Lower Temperature Coefficient

The Tiger Neo module has a lower temperature coefficient of -0.30% / ℃ compared with -0.35% / ℃ for the P-type, which makes it more durable to withstand extreme and high-temperature environments. Its low-light performance and small irradiance angle prolongs generation period of the panel during the day. It is these advantages of low-temperature coefficient, low degradation, and high bifacial factor, that enable annual energy yield 3% higher than that of mainstream P-type bifacial modules, says the firm.

Jinko asserts that thanks to  N-type’s higher yield rates and its control over manufacturing costs with better process technology, JinkoSolar remains ahead of its competitors.

Mr. Kangping Chen, Chief Executive officer of JinkoSolar Co., Ltd., commented, “The global PV market is entering a new era of energy generation at an unprecedented speed. The need to address different energy application scenarios and the urgency of the government and various industries for energy transformation have pushed the solar power demand to a new level. The new Tiger Neo flagship series was designed to meet the needs of large-scale utility, industrial and commercial distributed generation, and residential applications. Through the advantages of the N-type TOPCon technology, customers can invest in more efficient, more reliable, and more profitable PV systems. We believe that the Tiger Neo modules will continue to set new industry standards, and further promote the development of the global solar industry so that more people can enjoy a brighter future driven by clean energy solutions.”
