At TüV Rhineland Germany
New Delhi, 30th July, 2013: Vikram Solar, a Kolkata based leading solar module manufacturing company, announced today that the solar modules produced by the Group are now certified as resistant to PID (Potential Induced Degradation)
The Potential Induced Degradation (PID) test measures the resistance of the solar modules to survive harsh field operational conditions, which potentially affect the performance of individual modules as well as the overall power output and efficiency of entire solar power plants.
Commenting on the achievement Mr. Gyanesh Chaudhary, Managing Director, Vikram Solar said, “It is matter of immense pleasure for our modules to be certified as Potential Induced Degradation free. The Group has constantly believed in investing in research and development initiatives as it furthers strengthens our production base with the latest offering from the world of PV technology.”
During the test conducted by TüV Rhineland at Germany, the representative sample polycrystalline silicon modules of Vikram Solar were exposed to a negative voltage of 1,000 volt, at 60 deg C and 85% humidity for 96 hrs in an environmental chamber as per ‘IEC 62804-Draft’ standard. The panel’
