CHANGZHOU, China, July 20, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Enabled July 20, 2021, the world’s leading supplier of total photovoltaic and intelligent energy solutions Trina Solar released the 210 Vertex Worldwide Whitepaper 2.0 worldwide, aimed at comprehensively presenting the value of the ultra-high power 210 to the industry.
The 210 ultra-high power modules have made a significant breakthrough in production capacity, performance and customer adoption since the release of 210 Vertex White Paper 1.0 last year. Whitepaper 2.0 focuses on illustrating the multiple aspects of innovation and total reliability of ultra-high power modules. It sets a new benchmark and advances the technology of the photovoltaic industry.
Innovation 1: 210 tracks in a diverse layout design for all kinds of applications
Traditional modules adopt the layout design of 6 * 10 or 6 * 12, while 210 Vertex modules introduce varied layout design of 5 * 8, 5 * 10, 5 * 11, 6 * 10 and 6 * 11, etc., based on the characteristic of 210mm silicon wafers. On the one hand, these designs can match half cut or 1/3 cut cell technology to provide different application solutions for customers. On the other hand, these arrangements are designed to balance the electrical performance of the modules, to optimize the surface area, the weight and other properties, and to improve the compatibility of the installations. It can also eliminate additional costs and avoid supply limitations for key materials. In all kinds of application scenarios, Vertex 210 Modules are 40-90W above industry average, creating more value for customers.
Innovation 2: High string power modules are designed on system logic to increase system value
The key factor in reducing BOS costs is increasing the power of the chains. From cells and modules to strings, panels and the entire photovoltaic power plant, the string is a basic circuit unit of a photovoltaic system. The string power can be greatly increased according to the design of low voltage and high current. Under the same installation volume, the higher the power of the strings, the fewer strings are required, which reduces the cost of the BOS. In conjunction with lower BOS costs, the cost of trackers, pile foundations, cables and downstream labor also decreases. The string power of 600W + modules is 41% higher than other modules in the industry, and the BOS cost savings can reach 4-6%, thus providing a significant overall benefit to further reduce LCOE.
Ultra-high power 600W + modules are specially designed for large-scale power plants, and thinking entirely from the point of view of the application of the system, they improve the power of strings, thus reducing the cost of BOS.
Innovation 3: Innovative packaging solution vertically, the loading power increases by 12%
Since the 210 Vertex modules have been adopted around the world, logistics costs, transport safety and convenience of use come into play. For 600W + series products, Trina Solar changed the packaging methods to vertical portrait, so that the width of the modules is no longer limited by the height of the container. This packaging method allows maximum use of the internal capacity of the container. The charging power is 12% higher than with more orthodox methods, which translates into an 11% reduction in transport costs. Factory packing is completed with automatic equipments to ensure safety and efficiency, and when module pallets are transported, they are tightly arranged inside the container to prevent jarring. Finally, a stable and reliable transfer is made to the project site to ensure safe delivery to customers.
In addition, 210 modules feature eight technological innovations, including low voltage design, high density interconnect and auxiliary tools. The 210 modules offer a guarantee of total reliability as the products are also fully verified in terms of dynamic mechanical load, hot spot, operating temperature, etc. You can refer to the details in the white paper.
The value of 210 technology lies in the construction of a technical platform
210 is not only a technologically innovative product but also offers greater value as it establishes a highly innovative product technology platform. With this platform, through the synergy of innovation and upstream and downstream R&D, Trina Solar solved the problems of product reliability, guaranteed raw material supply and systematic compatibility and achieved consistent product optimization and rapid industrialization. The platform offers more feasibility in the design of photovoltaic modules and solutions for customers with high potential.
As the world’s leading provider of total photovoltaic and smart energy solutions, Trina Solar, adhering to the mission “Solar energy for all”, undertakes to innovate in a coherent way to create more value and calls on the whole industry to promote the establishment of an innovation mechanism and of an innovation ecosystem to build a new world with clean energy.
