Trina Solar Ltd. says that its Honey Plus multicrystalline silicon PV module reached a new power output record of 324.5Wp, a new world record for the power output from a high-efficiency multicrystalline silicon PV module.
Independently certified by TUV Rheinland, this result marks a new world record for a multicrystalline silicon module composed of 60 high-efficiency Honey Plus multicrystalline silicon cells (156Ã�156mm2) produced with advanced technologies, including back surface passivation and local back surface field, which were developed by Trina Solar and are currently in pilot production.
The company recently set a world record for its Honey Plus p-type PERC cell, which reached an efficiency of 20.76%, as independently confirmed by Germany's Fraunhofer ISE CalLab.
Trina Solar has set four new world records in 2014 for p-type PERC cells and modules. These include large-area p-type silicon substrates of 21.40% for monocrystalline and 20.76% for multicrystalline silicon solar cells, as well as new peak power output records for commercial PV modules of 335.2Wp for monocrystalline and 324.5Wp for multicrystalline silicon solar cells.
