Multi-crystalline silicon PV module claims power output world record
Trina Solar’s Honey Plus multi-crystalline silicon PV module reached a new power output record of 324.5 Wp, which has been independently certified by TUV Rheinland. The result marks a new world record for a multi-crystalline silicon module composed of 60 high-efficiency Honey Plus multi-crystalline silicon cells (156×156 mm2) produced with advanced technologies including back surface passivation and local back surface field, which were developed by Trina Solar and are currently in pilot production.
Building on the company’s world record for its Honey Plus p-type PERC cell which reached an efficiency of 20.76% as independently confirmed by Fraunhofer ISE CalLab in Germany.
Trina Solar has claimed four new world records in 2014 for p-type PERC cells and modules. The new records were for large-area (156×156 mm2) p-type silicon substrates of 21.40% for mono-crystalline and 20.76% for multi-crystalline silicon solar cells, as well as new peak power output records for commercial PV modules of 335.2 Wp for mono-crystalline and 324.5 Wp for multi-crystalline silicon solar cells.
