Description: This specification establishes minimum design, qualification and acceptance requirements for terrestrial solar cell modules suitable for incorporation in photovoltaic array applications in the 20kW to 500kW range, such as defined by Department of Energy PRDA EM-D-04-0038. Both mandatory and recommended requirement levels for selected performance criteria have been specified for modules within these arrays. As applicable, the manufacturer/contractor shall be responsible for generation and selection of appropriate design or test levels within the scope of these criteria. Specification of any additional requirements as necessary to satisfy the particular array or system application shall be the responsibility of the manufacturer/contractor. Environmental requirements imposed by this specification are considered to be the minimum level acceptable to DOE. Test procedures are detailed.
