WINAICO’s 300 W PERC module wins Taiwan Excellent PV Award for best PV module in safety, reliability and efficiency

WINAICO's 300 W PERC 60-cell module passes the advanced liability tests conducted by ITRI to win Taiwan Excellent PV Award, presented by Bureau of Energy, of Ministry of Economic Affairs

WINAICO, Taiwan's largest PV module manufacturer, was honored with the Taiwan Excellent PV award by Bureau of Energy, of Ministry of Economic Affairs, on 9th of October 2015. The award honors WINAICO's 300 W PERC 60-cell module as the best solar module in the industry, as selected by the advanced reliability and efficiency criteria designed by top research institute, ITRI.

ITRI's criteria to select Taiwan Excellent PV winners were based on advanced reliability tests including PID test, UV test, Dynamic Mechanical Load test, Thermal Cycling and Humidity Freeze test, among others. The test sequence and conditions followed NREL's proposed "Qualification Plus" and the new IEC 62804 and IEC 62892 (draft) initiatives to ensure the reliability of solar panels in real world conditions. The PID test period defined by ITRI was severely lengthened to 288 hours, three times the industry standard of 96 hours. It is through ITRI's extensive assessment around every facet of reliability concerns can one justify the winner of Taiwan Excellent PV award as the best quality module manufacturer in Taiwan.
"The aim of Taiwan Excellent PV award is to celebrate the quality of Taiwanese solar products and increase manufacturers' global brand awareness. We are very proud to be recognized as the best module manufacturer in Taiwan", said CL Wang, Director of R&D of WINAICO. "By winning the Taiwan Excellent PV award, our 300 W PERC module not only leads the world in 60-cell module efficiency, but also leads in safety and reliability against real world weather impacts."

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.
