IEC 61215 – Terrestrial Photovoltaic (PV) Modules – Design Qualification and Type Approval
IEC 61215’s focus is to determine the thermal and electrical characteristics of the modules, and to show their durability in outdoors operation. Actual module lifespand will depend on the design, environment and the conditions under which they are operated.
One of the most important solar cell testing procedures is IEC certification. It indicates solar modules comply with safety, quality and durability requirements. IEC certifications provide the basis for modules to be sold in the market.
