VERTEX MODULE TECHNOLOGY WHITE PAPER

Considering the impact of high current output on the junction box and inverter, module size on the installation, handling, transportation and logistics, Trina Solar has taken the lead in proposing a third-cut solar cell, 5*30 cell layout based on 210mm oversized wafers, with the perfect combination of Multi-Bus Bar, non-destructive cutting and high-density cell interconnection technology, which make the Vertex reaches 500W-plus power output and 21%-plus efficiency. The product design also takes into account the compatibility of downstream systems, paving the way for the Vertex in system integration and application.

ALBEDO: SUN GATHERED FROM THE SOIL

In this White Paper, the BiTEC analysis center places special emphasis on the importance of albedo to achieve more satisfactory results in obtaining energy. In this way, we conclude that the lighter colors of the soil and a softer texture result in a higher albedo and a greater generation of energy in bifacial modules.

BITEC: HOW TO SIMULATE BIFACIAL PROJECTS?

This whitepaper is the second part of a summary presenting the results obtained from November 2018 until March 2019 at Soltec’s Bifacial Tracker Evaluation Center (BiTEC) in Livermore, CA, USA. BiTEC studied Bifacial Gain in photovoltaic modules developed according to the two most common tracker market configurations nowadays: one-in-portrait (1P) and two-in-portrait (2P). Results obtained during fall and winter months show that individual modules in two-in-portrait configuration trackers obtain a Bifacial Gain of 16.8% under high albedo conditions (59.6%), which is 2.2% more than the same modules under a 1P configuration trackers for identical conditions.

KEEPING IT LEAN IN 2019

Rooftop solar has come a long way over the past decade. The ever-improving quality of equipment and components, enhanced level of expertise, consumer-friendly financing and huge price drops have all contributed mightily to turning residential and commercial/industrial solar into a thriving multibillion-dollar construction/energy sector in the United States and other countries. As the industry grows and more contractors get into the solar business, we know how important it is to provide useful tips and solid information on installation best practices from the mounting perspective—especially those that help installers keep their operations lean, the quality of their work high, and their businesses profitable.

2019 GLOBAL PHOTOVOLTAIC RELIABILITY STUDY

This program is one of the most thorough of its kind, guided by a multistep inspection protocol at sites in North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East and staffed with some of the most experienced scientists in the solar industry. This team of experts has compiled global data from 6.5M modules, 355 Installations and 1.8GW of Total Power
