JinkoSolar releases new 620-W Tiger Neo solar modules
JinkoSolar has announced the launch of a new line of ultra-efficient 2021 flagship Tiger Neo modules, just over a year after the release of its Tiger Pro Module Series.
The new Tiger Neo uses N-type TOPCon technology with further improvements in performance, power, energy density and reliability. In mass production, the new module delivers a maximum power of up to 620 W and an ultra-high conversion efficiency of up to 22.30%.
Mass-produced from 182mm wafers, the new Tiger Neo modules feature Multi-Busbar (MBB) and half-cut cell technology to reduce internal resistance loss, and the circular solder strip design increases optical gain, allowing the module to an ultra-high efficiency of up to 22.30%.
Tiger Neo’s bifacial factor of up to 85% is a great advantage as it allows approximately 5% to 15% higher energy yield over its lifetime compared to conventional P-type bifacial modules. A higher bifacial factor also improves power generation capacity and power generation efficiency.
The Tiger Neo module also has a lower temperature coefficient than the P type, which makes it more durable to withstand extreme and high temperatures. The low-light performance and small beam angle extend the panel’s exposure time during the day. Combining the advantages of low temperature coefficient, low degradation and high bifacial factor, these qualities enable an annual energy yield that is 3% higher than that of regular P-type bifacial modules.
With higher efficiency, higher bifacial factor, lower degradation, lower operating temperatures and better low irradiation performance, JinkoSolar’s N-type TOPCon technology is touted as the next generation of mainstream technology in the industry after the mono PERC.
“The global PV market is entering a new era of power generation at an unprecedented speed,” said Kangping Chen, CEO of JinkoSolar. “The need to address different energy application scenarios and the urgency of government and various industries for energy transformation have taken the need for solar energy to a new level. Tiger Neo’s new flagship series is designed to meet the needs of large-scale utility projects, industrial and commercial distributed generation and residential applications.The advantages of N-type TOPCon technology allow customers to invest in PV systems that are more efficient, reliable and profitable.We believe the Tiger Neo modules set new industry standards and further promote the development of the global solar industry so that more people can enjoy a brighter future powered by clean energy solutions.”
