Trina Solar’s Latest N-type Modules Receive BIS Certification

Trina Solar’s Latest N-type Modules Receive BIS Certification Global Cleantech Firm Trina Solar Is Back On BNEF's Tier 1 List

Trina Solar, a global solar and smart energy solution provider, announced that its latest N-type solar modules, Vertex N NEG21C.20 and Vertex N NEG19RC.20, have received the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification.

These modules will be exhibited at the Renewable Energy India (REI) tradeshow being held in New Delhi. Gaurav Mathur, Director of Trina Solar India, says: “The launch of our latest high- performance Vertex N modules into India, following the BIS certification, is in line with India’s target of having 500GW of renewable energy by 2030.”

As per the claims of the company, the latest Vertex N NEG21C.20 offers 700W+ maximum power output and up to 22.5 percent module efficiency to deliver high customer value, reliability, energy yield, at lower levelized cost of energy (LCOE) and balance of system (BOS) cost. Meanwhile, the Vertex N NEG19RC.20 delivers power output of 610W and efficiency of up to 22.6 percent. Both these modules use larger-size solar cells, 210*210mm and 210*182mm respectively, that generate more power than earlier generation, smaller-size cells.

A notable feature of these modules is the cutting-edge i-TOPCon technology or tunnel oxide passivated contact cell technology that enhances energy conversion efficiency. The ultra-thin tunnelling oxide layer contains unabsorbed light, increasing the cells’ efficiency, allowing the module to harvest more energy per unit area.

Trina said that its N-type modules also optimize bifacial power generation performance (bifaciality factor 80%±5%), and are highly compatible with TrinaTracker’s smart trackers, performing well in extreme weather conditions and challenging terrains – characteristic of
India. These modules incorporate other market-leading technologies: multi-busbar (MBB) for greater light absorption and high-density packing to maximize the surface area. Non- destructive cutting technology is used so the cells have ultra-smooth edges. It has been proven that such cells improve the module’s overall mechanical performance to better withstand external forces being applied to the module.
