Chinese solar panel manufacturer Risen Energy has launched its latest Titan series of PV modules with outputs surpassing 600 W.
The new Titan G6 module, based on the 210-mm large-size silicon wafers (G12) and with a highest capacity of 660 W, has been released less than eight months after the 500-W G5 series. According to Liu Yafeng, Risen Energy’s Senior Director of R&D, the G6 module comes with the same features of G5. It has adopted the non-destructive cutting and high-density packaging technologies, as well as the multi-busbar design and the 6 x 10 half-cut cell design. These technologies brought significant improvements to the anti-cracking and anti-hot spot performance of modules, while also reducing the BOS costs.
“At a time when grid parity for the PV industry has been reached, the crucial topic for now is to find ways to reduce the cost. It is in the core of your competitive edge,” said Dr Huang Qiang, Vice President of Risen Energy. “The staggering rise of capacity for modules from 400 W to 600 W is a groundbreaking achievement for PV industry.”
With a size of 2,172 x 1,303 x 25 mm and weight of 31.5 kg, the module has an open-circuit voltage of 41.4 V and a short-circuit current of 18.5 A. It has an efficiency up to 21.2%. The innovative feature of low voltage and high capacity, according to Liu, has done an impressive job in lowering the BOS cost. In terms of anti-hot spot performance, the 600-W module is able to reduce the risk of hot spots by 17.7%, which are mainly caused by defects in cell and related to the volume of currents. Liu added that the 600-W modules combined with tracking support will reduce the BOS cost by 12.17% and the LCOE by 9.51%.
