Rating of CPV modules: Results of module round robins
The results of three CPV module round robins are presented. Ten test labs around the world participated to the round robins in total. Each round robin used a different CPV module technology (Daido Steel, Soitec, Suncore). The data gathered at the test labs was used to test CSOC power rating procedures as basis for the IEC draft standard 62670-3. The deviation between the minimum and the maximum power output rated at the test labs was in average 4.4 % with a standard deviation of 1.8 %abs. This underlines that power ratings or CPV modules are reliable and reproducible.
