Abstract: Since 1981 the European Solar Test Installation of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre has performed accelerated ageing tests on terrestrial photovoltaic (PV) modules. From 1990 the test standard applied was Specification 503, which formed the basis for the International Electrotechnical Commission Standard IEC 61215 (1993). According to the applied standard, in the majority of cases, two modules of a given module type are subject to specific tests, such as ultraviolet light exposure (UVE), 50 thermal cycles (TC50), 200 thermal cycles (TC200), humidity freeze (HUF) and damp heat (DAH). This paper presents statistical analysis of the repeatability and consistency of results from 15 years of crystalline silicon module qualification tests.
