JinkoSolar to Launch New Series of Smart Modules at PV Expo in Japan
SHANGHAI, Feb. 24, 2014 -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. ("JinkoSolar" or the "Company") (NYSE: JKS), a global leader in the solar PV industry, today announced that it will launch a new series of Smart Modules at the PV Expo in Japan on February 26, 2014.
JinkoSolar Smart Modules correct mismatch issues towards cells and module strings by using embedded cell optimizer ICs that provide sub-panel level Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) functions. This allows any underperforming cell or module strings to continue contributing power to the string while not restricting the flow of the others. The Smart Modules will also significantly minimize the risk of hot spots which are the primary cause of module failure. Electricity generation increases approximately 20% when compared with standard solar modules which tend to have difficulty operating in unfavorable conditions such as in the shade, under clouds that aren’t oriented properly.
“We are pleased to introduce the latest advancement in JinkoSolar technology. Our Smart Modules will significantly improve working performance for the PV system. With the introduction of a new generation of smart modules, JinkoSolar will continue to provide customers with affordable clean energy choices,” commented Mr. Kangping Chen, Chief Executive Officer of JinkoSolar.
