Photovoltaic Product Test and Certification

As an international expert organization, DEKRA offers a wide range of comprehensive services to address the challenges of the solar market.

We have professional equipment and outstanding experts to help you streamline efforts and create efficiencies to get your product into the hands of customers faster than ever before.

A safe, high-efficiency and running well PV power plant relies on good quality PV components. The effective recognition of PV components is often ignored by the end users, and this circumstance results in a great hidden danger in each stage.

DEKRA not only supports manufacturers as well as end-use customers. We participate into the process in the first stage. We provide our service regarding to international standards, and strictly supervise the process from the design of PV components, material selection to production. We provide the great support to have risk-free operation of PV power plant.

PV inverters convert DC voltages generated by photovoltaic modules to AC voltages, and can be feed to commercial public distribution networks, or used in off-grid system. PV inverter is the core component of photovoltaic power generation systems. Inverters, as the most electronic and electrical components used in photovoltaic power station, have relatively poor reliability and easy to failure. Increasing the reliability of the inverter can significantly improve the reliability of the whole power station, resulting in a significant increase in the average annual electricity generation of photovoltaic power stations.
