The world's leading solar energy company, GCL System Integration Technology Co., Ltd. (GCL-SI), recently announced that its GCL-P6/72 Multi-Busbar (MBB) module has earned IEC certification from TUV Rheinland.
The new solar product marks a breakthrough for GCL-SI in the development of new photovoltaic (PV) technology and further strengthens the company's ability to increase its share of the global PV market.
GCL-SI's new GCL-P6/72 MBB module is one of the first MBB module series to be certified by TUV Rheinland in Greater China. The certification adds a strong competitive edge to the product and further assures the performance and reliability of the MBB module developed by the company.
The solar cells of GCL-SI's MBB module are with 12 busbars. This technology improves the current-generating ability of the busbar and decreases the internal loss. It also reduces the shading area on the cell to increase the light absorbing. This design creates an up to 5W increase in power output, resulting in a maximum power output of 340W, with the module efficiency up to 17.5%.
Furthermore, compared to the conventional design on busbar and solder strip, MBB cell design can effectively lower residual stress, which can help reduce micro crack. Moreover, due to the small distance between busbars, even coming up with micro crack or fragment, the loss of the cell is lower and it can keep its good performance.
Addition to the regular IEC tests, GCL-SI MBB module has also been tested in harsh environments, undergoing tests for blowing sand, salt spray and ammonia, and maintains a stable performance under all conditions.
GCL-SI will formally introduce the new product at SNEC PV Power Expo 2017, which will be held from April 19-21 in Shanghai.
Huang Qiang, head of GCL-SI R&D center said, "It is important and essential to constantly pursue the technological development of solar modules, as the demand for distributed photovoltaic generation and competition for suppliers is rapidly growing. The GCL-P6/72 MBB module is another huge breakthrough for GCL-SI in a series of new modules including 96 super high power components, double glazing panels and half piece panels."
Huang further commented, "The development of GCL MBB module is also a significant step for GCL-SI in becoming the world's leading one-stop energy service and solution provider."
GCL System Integration Technology Co., Ltd., is part of the GOLDEN CONCORD Group (GCL). GCL-SI delivers a one-stop, cutting-edge, integrated energy system and is committed to becoming the world leading solar energy company.
