JA Solar announced the launch of n-type PV module DeepBlue 4.0 X, marking the company’s entry into the n-type PV product market.
JA Solar said in a news statement that the DeepBlue 4.0 X series includes three module types adaptable to any scenario: 54-cell module for residential PV systems, 72-cell and 78-cell for commercial and utility-scale PV projects.
JA Solar’s DeepBlue 4.0 X has passed the IEC 61215 and IEC 61730 tests and obtained the TUV SUD certificate.
DeepBlue 4.0 X integrates the latest technologies from JA Solar, including the Bycium+ cell, wherein mass production efficiency can reach more than 24.8 percent owing to its high-quality substrate and structure.
DeepBlue 4.0 X is equipped with the patented high-density module encapsulation technology GFI (Gapless flexible interconnection), where the design of the round ribbon with buffer treatment and optimized encapsulation material deals with mechanical stress at cell interconnections and thus eliminating the risk of micro-cracking.
Together, these bring higher reliability and higher energy yield to DeepBlue 4.0 X, with maximum power reaching 625W and efficiency of up to 22.4 percent.
JA Solar and TUV NORD launched a one-year energy yield test at China Photovoltaic Test Center and the results show that the energy yield of the n-type module based on Bycium+ cells is 3.9 percent higher than that of p-PERC modules.
According to JA Solar PV system simulation data, compared with p-type modules, BOS cost reduction of DeepBlue 4.0 X tops out at 2.1 percent, and LCOE at 4.6 percent, further increasing the IRR and bringing more value to the customer.
