Indian solar manufacturer RenewSys has launched the DESERV Galactic Ultra series of mono-facial modules with 505W peak output and 20.17% efficiency. The modules are India’s first to reach 505Wp, and the world’s first mono-facial panels to cross the peak output of 500 W using G1-sized (158.75mm) cells.
The series includes two key variants–HI and HV–which have been engineered using five-busbar, half-cut, mono-PERC cells based on G1-size (158.75 mm) wafers.
The HI series panels are designed for rooftop and utility-scale solar power plants. These provide 505Wp output at a lower voltage (Voc=40.47V), ensuring longer string length.
“The total power per string can be increased by up to 20%. This, in turn, assures savings not just on the amount of land required to set up a plant, but on the entire gamut of material needed to set up the plant, commonly referred to as the balance-of-systems (BOS),” stated the manufacturer.
HI series panels are compatible with all installation schemes, including single- and double-tracker systems.
The HV series, with a high open-circuit voltage of 60.94V, is suitable for pumping applications.
“This results in a 60% reduction in the number of solar modules required to set up a pump with a voltage that is 10% higher than modules otherwise used in solar pumps,” said the manufacturer.
At the virtual launch of the modules, Nandkumar Pai, CEO-PV Cells and Modules, RenewSys India, said, “We have been greatly encouraged by the support that the Government and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has been giving to Make in India, which has only made our resolve to deliver world-class products even stronger. DESERV Galactic Ultra is a product of this determination and commitment to making Made In India solar PV modules, the product of choice not just in India, but globally as well.”
Avinash Hiranandani, Global CEO and Managing Director, added, “RenewSys is committed to supplying quality, reliable solar PV products. Our heritage of manufacturing excellence, combined with our investments in R&D, state-of-the-art machinery and focus on innovation, is helping us reach out to discerning customers across the globe.”
