SDN launches 600 W solar modules for floating PV

SDN has introduced the new SunDay 10+ Wave modules, a line of glass-glass bifacial modules designed for floating photovoltaic (PV) projects. Based on M10 wafers and busbar technology, the modules have 144 monocrystalline half-cut cells. They come in three versions, each with nominal power ratings ranging from 590 W to 600 W, and power conversion efficiencies varying between 21.11 per cent and 21.46 per cent. The short-circuit current ranges from 13.92 A to 14.05 A, while the open-circuit voltage ra­n­ges from 53.79 V to 54.11 V. These panels have dimensions of 2,465 mm x 1,134 mm x 35 mm, and weigh 35.9 kg. They are built with aluminium alloy fra­mes and 2 mm tempered anti-reflective glass. Additio­nally, they have an IP68 enclosure and a maximum system voltage of 1,500 V. The panels can operate in temperatures between – 40 °Celsius and 85 °Celsius, and have a temperature coefficient of -0.40 per cent per °Celsius. The series has a 12-year warranty and a 30-year performance warranty. The degeneration in the first year is 2 per cent. After 30 years, a power output of a minimum of 83.5 per cent of the nominal output power is guaranteed by the company.
