AE Solar – a German innovator in the solar energy industry – will exhibit at the Solar Solutions International Expo, in Haarlemmermeer, The Netherlands. The company’s research and development team are always focused on new innovations and emerging photovoltaic (PV) technologies, and delivers its products to the highest quality. As a result, AE Solar successfully developed the Smart Shading Resistant Hot-spot Free Module for mass production.
The Smart Shading Resistant Hot-Spot Free Modules use bypass diodes between each cell to avoid shading consequences. Between each cell of PV (poly, mono, double glass, bi facial) bypass diodes are installed. This protects each cell from hot spots and bypasses the cell if it is partially or fully shaded. This significantly reduces the power output loss of PV modules. It has the same effect as 3 bypass diodes in a junction box of standard modules, but is many times more effective. This is because for 72 cells there are 72 diodes and for 60 cells there are 60 diodes. It prevents the overheating of cells and prolongs the generation hours in standard solar farms installation configurations (tested by Fraunhofer CSP). It is simpler than any smart electronics and optimisers used for the same purposes, as well as cheaper and more reliable. This is because it only consists of one type of part under laminated glass.
Available from 260 W to 385 W range, the AE Smart Hot-Spot Free Modules offer up to 30% more power output compared to standard PV modules.
