Trina Solar Ltd. says it has achieved a breakthrough in its development of monocrystalline cell technology. The company developed a square monocrystalline cell with enhanced power output using its proprietary improved cell manufacturing process.
Using specially designed metallization and passivation techniques, the advanced cell structure is expected to significantly boost cell conversion efficiency, achieving up to 18.8% efficiency in test laboratory production, according to Trina Solar. In addition, this technology is expected to improve module output due to increased light absorbing surface area of the square shaped cell.
