Abstract

In this study, the fire and heat performance of PV modules is evaluated using the CNS 12514-1 testing method. In the test of PV module with insulation materials, there are 3 kinds of fire-resistant methods of polysilicon PV modules. Polysilicon PV modules with a calcium silicate board, a phenova insulation board, a gypsum board as exposed surfaces, respectively, were tested. There were wire holes on the back board of the PV modules in the three designs. The holes degraded fire resistance. With the aluminum and gypsum back board, the PV modules caught fire and their integrity failed. To enhance the fire and heating performance of PV modules, it is necessary to further improve the designs. The PV module with the calcium silicate board had no flames spill out during the test, but the surface temperature was higher than that of the CNS-12514-1 specification.
