JA Solar has launched its first n-type PV module DeepBlue 4.0 X. Based on the 182 wafer, the DeepBlue 4.0 X collection contains three module sorts adaptable to any situation: 54-cell module for residential PV techniques, and 72-cell and 78-cell for business and utility-scale PV tasks. DeepBlue 4.0 X has already handed the IEC 61215 and IEC 61730 assessments and obtained the TÜV SÜD certificates, in addition to handed the salt mist, ammonia, sand and mud testing, proving its suitability throughout varied purposes and environments.
In addition to the benefits carried over from DeepBlue 3.0 modules, DeepBlue 4.0 X integrates the most recent applied sciences from JA Solar, together with the Bycium+ cell, whereby mass manufacturing effectivity can attain greater than 24.8% owing to its high-quality substrate and construction. Also, DeepBlue 4.0 X is provided with the patented high-density module encapsulation expertise GFI (gapless versatile interconnection), the place the design of the spherical ribbon with buffer remedy and optimized encapsulation materials offers with mechanical stress at cell interconnections and thus eliminating the chance of micro-cracking. Together, these deliver larger reliability and better energy yield to DeepBlue 4.0 X, with most power reaching 625W and effectivity of as much as 22.4%.
According to Kun Tang, director of the product expertise division at JA Solar, JA Solar has been engaged on the n-type expertise for years, and after steady funding in R&D and experimentation, is lastly prepared for mass manufacturing. To confirm the power technology efficiency of the product, JA Solar and TÜV NORD launched a one-year (February 2021-February 2022) energy yield take a look at at China Photovoltaic Test Center, Yinchuan base (Northwest China). The outcomes present that the energy yield of the n-type module primarily based on Bycium+ cells is 3.9% larger than that of p-PERC modules. According to JA Solar PV system simulation information, in contrast with p-type modules, BOS value discount of DeepBlue 4.0 X tops out at 2.1%, and LCOE at 4.6%, additional rising the IRR and bringing extra worth to the shopper. “The development of low-carbon and green solutions has become a key global mission,” says Xinwei Niu, member of the board and senior vp of JA Solar.
“As one of the most flexible and cost-effective renewable energy, PV power has become an important force in promoting carbon neutrality. From p-type to n-type, from DeepBlue 3.0 to DeepBlue 4.0 X, JA Solar has always adhered to the product design concept of ‘customer oriented’. We are always trying to improve the power generation performance of PV modules in order to create more value for customers and promote the application of PV power at a global scale to play a greater role in the process of global carbon neutrality.”
