Waaree Energies Ltd, a diversified solar power solutions company, has announced the launch of a new 1,500 V System Voltage crystalline solar module at the Renewable Energy India Expo, 2016.
The conventional 1,000 V system voltage allows PV system designed only up to 1,000 V. The new 1,500 V module has proven its performance under UL 1703 (Standard for Flat-Plate Photovoltaic Modules and Panels) and allows a significantly more efficient system design while reducing the overall BOS and cabling costs.
Raising the maximum system voltage to 1,500V means a potential increase of up to 50 per cent in string length, hence reducing the overall BOS cost. It is an inevitable trend that 1,500 V systems would begin to be installed on a global scale in the future, not so far away. The module still remains PID (Potential Induced Degradation) resistant as per IEC 62804. The company announced the successful completion of the project at the Renewable Energy India Expo.
