ANTI PID TECHNOLOGY: THE ESP FOR SOLAR MODULES.
SO THAT YOUR YIELDS DON’T SWERVE OFF COURSE
Trust is good, but prevention is better. For solar cells and solar modules from Hanwha Q CELLS, potential induced degradation (PID) doesn´t exist.
Potential induced degradation can lead to a performance loss of 20 % or more, even in the first few months.
The Anti PID Technology from Hanwha Q CELLS will save you from this fate.
Based on the way conventional photovoltaic systems work, voltage differences occur between the frames and the solar cells of a module. Especially in wet weather this can lead to undesired leakage currents which can decrease the performance of the cells. According to a report by the industry journal Photon (12 / 2010), this can result in yield losses of 20 % or more. This effect has been named “Potential Induced Degradation”, abbreviated “PID”.
Progressive performance losses decrease a system’s yield and this often leads to high claim rates for module manufacturers and installers. Plus, proving PID is a very complicated and costly process. Hanwha Q CELLS prevents PID at the cell level so that modules and entire systems permanently generate reliably high yields.
The Q CELLS’ Anti PID Technology (APT) optimizes the cell production process so that the negative effects of leakage currents are already eliminated at the cell level. This makes both our solar cells and our solar modules PID-resistant¹. In plain English: PV systems from Hanwha Q CELLS generate reliable energy without any PID-affected performance loss. This means operators and installers can sit back and relax.
