iLumen acquires patent PID coating for American marketIlumen
Over time, solar modules suffer efficiency losses due to Potential Induced Degradation. To cope with this phenomenon, iLumen developed the PIDbox, a device that increases the efficiency of solar panels and extends their lifespan.
In order to obtain the highest efficiency possible, a special PID coating can be applied on the glass of your solar panels. This may be in the form of a spray, or by mixing it with the water for the maintenance of your solar panels.
In this way a filter remains on the panels, so that the electric charge quickly ends up in your installation. This ensures, in combination with the installation of the efficiency enhancing PIDbox of iLumen, a faster regeneration of the solar panels affected by PID.
Note that the PIDcoating does only work properly when a PIDbox is installed!
The independent agency MBJ performed a test at Intersolar Europe (Munich) on the operation of the PIDbox in combination with PID coating for two different solar panels.
As can be seen from the figure, the efficiency of the first panel increased by as much as 73.2% in 48 hours. On the second panel, an efficiency increase of even 78% was reached in the same timeframe.
After iLumen previously obtained a patent for the European and Asian market, we just received the happy news that a patent was also issued for the United States.
The patent “Solar panel system and method for accelerated regeneration and / or prevention of solar defects panels “was assigned to our company for this purpose under the number US 10,381,976.
