Anti PID Technology
Potential Induced Degradation can lead a significant power loss on both P-type and N-type cells, so the APT effectively protects the solar cells and secures high energy yield in the long-term.
Anti LeTID Technology
Light and Elevated Temperature Induced Degradation (LeTID) effect can significantly damage the power of solar cells on both p-type and n-type cells. Q-Cells is the first company to observe LeTID effects and come up with a solution to suppress LeTID.
One hotspot can cause a continuous loss of yield and in the worst case, the module can ignite. To prevent hotspots from forming in the cells, the manufacturer tests solar cells in various ways, such as by scanning the infrared camera.
Greater output by halving the current
Halving the cell halves the current. When combined with a module layout which reduces the distance traveled by the electric current, the result is a 3% increase in power. Two half cells with 12 busbars have the same or even greater output as a full cell with 24 busbars.
Multi Busbars Technology
Less resistance and better capture of excited electrons
Reduced distance in between the busbars and additional paths for electric current results in 2% power increase. More paths can be created with the shorter distance leads lower congestion, which in turn reduces resistive losses.
Reduced shading losses with round wires
Utilizing wires instead of flat ribbons reduces both the width and the effective shading width decreasing shading by 75% and increasing the power by 2.5%. The light reflected from the round shape of the wires improves the light capturing effect of the module.
