A photovoltaic (PV) module is the basic element of each photovoltaic system. Light energy gets converted into electricity. It consists of many jointly connected solar cells (Poly / Multi or Mono Cells). Most commercial grid crystalline modules usually consist of 60 cells (225 Watts to 240 Watts) or of 72 cells (250 Watts to 280 Watts). Solar cells are connected and placed between a tedlar plate on the bottom and a tempered glass on the top. Placed between the solar cells and the glass there is a thin foil of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). Solar cells are interconnected with thin contacts on the upper side of the semiconductor material, which can be seen as a metal net on the solar cells. The net must be as thin as possible allowing a disturbance free incidence photon stream. Usually a module is framed with an alluminium frame, occasionally with a stainless steel or with a plastic frame. Over its estimated life of at least 25 years a photovoltaic module will produce much more electricity than used in it's production.
Microsol in its endeavours in moving up the supply chain has currently an alliance partnership with a world class module manufacturer to produce high efficiency modules based in the EU. Microsol currently uses its 156mm x 156mm pseudo mono square cells in its modules. Each module weighs 19.3 Kgs and come with a 3.2mm thick standard glass laminate but can do 4mm as well on a need only basis. The modules are certified for IEC 61215 & IEC 61730. Microsol are in discussions to get these certified for MCS (UK market) and UL (US market) as well. Microsol plans to have a 30MW module manufacturing facility in Fujairah, UAE by the end of 2011.
Microsol using its top of the line solar cells from its manufacturing location in the UAE and partnering with its EU counterpart that use a semi-automated module production line and materials complying to highest industry standards, Microsol provides a complete set of Multi and Mono-crystalline grid Photo-voltaic(PV) modules ranging from 200Wp to 240Wp.
Microsol offers modules for use in small off-grid systems to the largest on-grid solar farms. Panels are tested and qualified for the severest weather conditions. We also provide special custom solutions to fit specific projects.
Great Output Yields
Microsol modules generate maximum yields using low surface areas – even in diffused light. All Microsol modules feature high efficiency rates with output tolerance fluctuation of ± 3%. We guarantee at least 80% of the stated minimum output power within the first 25 years of commissioning.
Durability & Availability
Microsol modules have a life span of over 25 years. Due to its extruded, anodized alluminium frame and the use of either 3.2 mm or 4 mm tempered safety glass with anti reflective coating that offers a high level of safety even in extreme weather conditions. Its modules are highly durable and sought after throughout the EU, Australia & India and now looking to penetrate the UK & US markets.
Microsol’s production sites in the EU allow us to guarantee continually increasing production volumes while maintaining consistently high manufacturing quality. With its warehouse location in Germany, we can always guarantee delivery of the number of modules ordered at short notice.
