Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 June 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 22
ICS Code (Solar energy engineering): 27.160
scope:

This document defines additional testing requirements for modules deployed under conditions leading to higher module temperature which are beyond the scope of IEC 61215-1 and IEC 61730-1 and the relevant component standards, IEC 62790 and IEC 62852. The testing conditions specified in IEC 61215-2 and IEC 61730-2 (and the relevant component standards IEC 62790 and IEC 62852) assumed that these standards are applicable for module deployment where the 98th percentile temperature (T98th), that is the temperature that a module would be expected to equal or exceed for 175,2 h per year, is less than 70 °C.

NOTE 175,2 h represents 2 % of a total year as some thermal failure modes are a function of time at temperature and not sensitive to day-only or night-only exposure.

This document defines two temperature regimes, temperature level 1 and temperature level 2, which were designed considering deployment in environments with mounting configurations such that the T98th is less than or equal to 80 °C for temperature level 1, and less than or equal to 90 °C for temperature level 2. This document provides recommended additional testing conditions within the IEC 61215 series, IEC 61730 series, IEC 62790 and IEC 62852 for module operation in temperature levels 1 and 2.
