Trina Solar’s State Key Laboratory Testing Center became the first testing center in the solar industry to receive the Power Measurement Uncertainty Assessment Service (UAS) Certificate from TUV Rheinland. This certificate validates the accuracy of on-site power measurements recorded at the Trina Solar State Key Laboratory Testing Center.
This certification proves that the procedures, test equipment and staff capabilities employed during the process of power output measurement at Trina Solar's State Key Laboratory Testing Center are in accordance with stringent International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard as well as TUV Rheinland strict assessment criteria. Following the certification, all products assessed by the Company's State Key Laboratory Testing Center will carry a TUV Rheinland certification mark.
The certification provides clear guidance to PV manufacturers and buyers on the power rating of PV modules, provides transparent information about the performance, and minimize measurement uncertainty of PV module output. It also helps manufacturers improve the accuracy of measurements and reduce measurement errors.
"With the continuing development of solar power in China, ensuring the quality of solar power plants is paramount,” said Wei Zhou, Vice President of Quality Department of Trina Solar. “TUV Rheinland's recognition of our internal power measurement system assures our partners and customers of the reliability and quality of our modules. It will further strengthen our position as the leading module manufacturer in the world."
