Scope and object

Photovoltaic (PV) modules are electrical devices intended for continuous outdoor exposure during their lifetime. Existing type approval standards do not consider mechanical stresses that may occur during transportation to the PV installation destination.

This part of IEC 62759 describes methods for the simulation of transportation of complete package units of modules and combined subsequent environmental impacts, it does however not include pass/fail criteria.

This standard is designed so that its test sequence can co-ordinate with those of IEC 61215 or IEC 61646, so that a single set of samples may be used to perform both the transportation simulation and performance evaluation of a photovoltaic module design. This standard applies to flat plate photovoltaic modules, but may also be used as a basis for testing of CPV modules and assemblies.
