Concept of ‘PID-free’ PV modules is extinguishing: ‘highly PID-resistant’ is the new standard

Many solar module manufacturers claim their modules are ‘PID free’, which should mean that they will not suffer any efficiency losses due to Potential Induced Degradation. However, in practice ‘PID free’ does NOT mean no degradation will occur. Potential Induced [...]

How to detect PID on your PV plant?

Characteristic for PV plants is that they will underperform as a result of Potential Induced Degradation or PID. This phenomenon occurs on all types of PV plants, often without the owner of the installation being aware of it. PID implies [...]
