WINAICO’s 300 W monocrystalline PERC module achieves Type 1 module fire performance in accordance with UL 1703

WINAICO's 300 W 60-cell monocrystalline PERC module passes UL 1703 tests, and achieves Type 1 module fire performance

WINAICO, Taiwan's largest PV module brand, has achieved Type 1 module fire performance, defined by the UL 1703 certification, for the 300 W monocrystalline PERC module. This represents WINAICO's conviction in combining the highest efficiency and safety into one single solar module. WINAICO becomes one of only three companies in the world to achieve CEC listing with 60 cell modules of greater than 300 W. WINAICO's 60 cell modules are listed up to 315 W, and has a PTC rating of 288.2 W, one of the highest in the list, proving the modules' high performance in the real world conditions.

In order to qualify for Type 1 module fire performance, WINAICO's module withstood the fire test setup, with a direct 760±28°C flame at wind speed of 5.3±0.2 m/s for 10 minutes. The module was able to limit the spread of flame to less than 6 feet (1.82 m) within the 10 minute timeframe. Additional burning brand test was conducted, where WINAICO module withstood a burning brand on the module surface for 4 minutes, and the flame spread was less than 13 feet (3.96 m).
"WINAICO leads the world in high efficiency and reliability, and achieving the Type 1 module fire performance with our 300 W PERC module demonstrates our synergy in both areas", said Sascha Rossmann, Vice President of Global Sales for WINAICO. "At the same time, WINAICO becomes one of only three companies in the world to achieve CEC listing with 60 cell modules of greater than 300 W."

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Many 1.5 MW wind turbines use traditional open-loop water/glycol cooling systems. Regular water evaporation in the reservoir elevates the mixture's viscosity, prohibiting cooling of the IGBT and associated critical controls, causing the wind turbine to overheat unless serviced, which in turn means turbine downtime and high maintenance costs. Parker's KleenVent Coolant Evaporation Inhibitor (KV-CEI) is a simple add-on to the legacy cooling system, that eliminates water evaporation in the coolant solution and stops the ingress of airborne contaminants, by enclosing the cooling loop. The KVCEI also removes the need for continuous coolant monitoring during the warm season. Traditional maintenance calls to replenish or rebalance the fluids, take the wind turbine and transformer offline, resulting in significant downtime and revenue loss. Parker's cooling system solution optimizes wind turbine uptime and revenue, reduces maintenance costs and increases overall efficiencies.
