1.1 

This Standard Document outlines a PV module testing protocol for quality assurance programs. It is intended to be used by banks, developers, independent engineers, and manufacturers as a publicly available document reflecting industry best practices for module quality assurance and reliability testing. This Document is intended to be a stand-alone document that does not interact with other safety or qualification standards such as the UL 1703, IEC 61730, and IEC 61215. It is possible that some testing in this Document might duplicate testing in the UL 1703, IEC 61730, and IEC 61215 safety and qualification standards. However, market practices as they currently exist might require independent quality assurance and reliability testing and due diligence by parties not associated with the safety and qualification testing.

1.2 

The individual test legs in the protocol of this Document are derived from existing tests in safety, qualification, and reliability testing described in existing IEC documents and the NREL Photovoltaic Module Qualification Plus Testing, and may be updated over time as new test legs and protocols are validated and published. The test legs in this Document are designed to reproduce failures that have been observed in the field or potentially could be seen in the field. Test leg durations have been carefully considered to avoid accumulated exposures greater than those that might be reasonably expected in actual deployment scenarios. This Document is intended to be used across PV module technology types.

1.3 

This document may be potentially used for the:

a) evaluation of comparative reliability among different module manufacturers or designs;

b) evaluation of comparative reliability among different module bills of materials (BOMs);

c) diagnosis of potential problems with new module manufacturing equipment or facilities through comparison with equipment and facilities that are known to yield expected results; and

d) provision of data for ongoing quality monitoring programs after product validation.

1.4

Although the test protocol laid out in this document has been designed to reproduce failures that have been seen in the field or potentially could be seen in the field, the test protocol is not intended for a service lifetime prediction study. At the time of publication of this Document, there is no consensus in the PV community on how the results of the specific IEC tests or test sequences, which the protocol in this document uses as building blocks, relate quantitatively to the acceleration factors of different field failure modes. As such, efforts to derive field degradation rates from the lab test results may lead to incorrect conclusions.

1. Scope

1.1

This Standard applies to portable type gas camp stoves (herein after referred to as “appliance” or “stove”) having input ratings of 15,000 Btu/hr (4.4 kW) or less per burner for use:

a)         with propane gas, butane gas, and any combination thereof; and

b)         outdoors only.

1.2

Stoves and components employing materials or having forms of construction differing from those detailed in this Standard may be examined and tested according to the intent of this Standard and if found to be satisfactorily equivalent, may be given recognition.

1.3

This Standard applies to stoves constructed entirely of new, unused parts.

1.4

All references to psi throughout this Standard are to be considered gauge pressures unless otherwise specified.

1.5

All accessories recommended by the manufacturer for use with appliances tested to this Standard are to be supplied and evaluated with the appliance.

1.6

If a value for measurement, as given in this Standard, is followed by an equivalent value in other units, the first stated value is to be regarded as the specification, except as noted in Clause 4.13, Instructions, and Clause 4.14.1.

1.7

Annex A, Items Unique to Canada, contains Clauses that are unique to Canada.

1.8

Clause 2, Reference publications, contains a list of standards specifically referenced in this Standard, and sources from which these standards may be obtained.

1.9

This Standard contains SI (Metric) equivalents to the yard/pound quantities, the purpose being to allow the Standard to be used in SI (Metric) units. (IEEE/ASTM SI 10, American National Standard for Metric Practice, or ISO 80000-1:2009, Quantities and units – Part 1: General, is used as a guide in making metric conversion from yard/pound quantities.) If a value for a measurement and a corresponding value in other units are stated, the first stated value is to be regarded as the requirement. The given corresponding value may be approximate. If a value for a measurement and a corresponding value in other units are both specified as a quoted marking requirement, the first stated unit, or both are to be provided.

1.10

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user shall satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
