ICS Code (Solar energy engineering): 27.160
scope:

This document describes the fundamental construction and testing requirements for Concentrator Photovoltaic (CPV) modules and assemblies in order to provide safe electrical and mechanical operation during their expected lifetime. Specific topics are provided to assess the prevention of electrical shock, fire hazards, and personal injury due to mechanical and environmental stresses.

This document attempts to define the basic requirements for various application classes of concentrator photovoltaic modules and assemblies, but it cannot be considered to encompass all national and regional codes.

This document is designed so that its test sequence can coordinate with those of IEC 62108, so that a single set of samples may be used to perform both the safety and performance evaluation of a CPV module and assembly.

CPV modules that are constructed in the flat plate module format and operate at 3X and less geometric concentration ratio are considered for evaluation to IEC 61730-1 and IEC 61730-2.
