About the SGS Solar Test House

Located near Dresden, Germany, the SGS Solar Test House is a relatively new solar testing lab, where solar modules are submitted to intensive testing as part of the module certification process. Accredited to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025, the SGS Solar Test House can cover the entire quality control and analysis needs from raw materials to solar cells and modules.

Thanks to the nearby SGS Institute Fresenius, a microelectronics expertise center that employs high precision equipment to perform atom-level surface analyses, element depth profiles and identification of impurities and contact problems, SGS can perform failure analyses down to microscopic levels.

Modules that pass testing receive a globally recognized SGS or SGS-TV quality mark (IEC 61215 and IEC 61730), which enables faster access to end-user markets. Apart from testing to IEC standards, the SGS Solar Test House can perform, upon a manufacturer's request, testing to other standards and check specific functional parameters.

Furthermore, SGS serves the whole value chain of the photovoltaic projects. Our Technical Due Diligence includes a review of design basis documentation, evaluation of performance and physical condition and site assessment.

During further phases of a photovoltaic or solar project life cycle, such as fabrication, transportation and installation and commissioning, clients can rely on SGSs technical consultancy services designed to assure and supervise safe and qualitative project execution by all members of the value chain.

All SGS services are tailor-made to meet clients' specific requirements. SGS offers Condition Monitoring and Maintenance Management, Verification of Performance and Failure Analyses as well as End of Warranty Inspection for solar plants.

The SGS Group is the global leader and innovator in inspection, verification, testing and certification services. Founded in 1878, SGS is recognized as the global benchmark in quality and integrity. With more than 59,000 employees, SGS operates a network of over 1,000 offices and laboratories around the world.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
