GB/T 20047 consists of the following two parts:
- Part 1: Photovoltaic (PV) module safety qualification: requirements for construction;
- Part 2: Photovoltaic (PV) module safety qualification: requirements for testing. This Part is Part 1 of GB/T 20047, which is identical to IEC 61730-1:2004 “Photovoltaic (PV) module safety qualification - Part 1: requirements for construction” (English version).
For ease of use, the following editorial changes have been made to this Part: a) USE decimal point “.” instead of comma “,” that has been used as decimal point; b) DELETE the foreword of the international standard.
This Part was proposed by Ministry of Information Industry of the People’s Republic of China.
This Part shall be under the jurisdiction of National Technical Committee on Solar Photovoltaic Energy System of Standardization Administration of China.
Drafting organizations of this Part: 18th Research Institute of China Electronics Technology Group Corporation, Tianjin Blue Sky Power Supply Company.
Main drafters of this Part: Guo Zengliang, Zhai Zuoxu, Ji Liangjun, Li Hui, Sun Yanzheng, and Tang Jun.
Photovoltaic (PV) module safety qualification -
Part 1: Requirements for construction
1 Scope and object
This Part of GB/T 20047 describes the fundamental construction requirements for photovoltaic (PV) modules in order to provide safe electrical and mechanical operation during their expected lifetime. Specific topics are provided to assess the prevention of electrical shock, fire hazards, and personal injury due to mechanical and environmental stresses. Part 2 of GB/T 20047 outlines the requirements for testing. This Part of GB/T 20047 pertains to the particular requirements for construction.
This Part attempts to define the basic requirements for various application classes of PV modules, but it cannot be considered to encompass all national or regional building codes. The specific requirements for marine and vehicle applications are not covered in this Part. This Part is not applicable to modules with integrated AC inverters (AC modules).
This Part is designed so that its test sequence can coordinate with those of IEC 61215:2004 or GB/T 18911-2002, so that a single set of samples may be used to perform both the safety and performance evaluation of a photovoltaic module design. The object of this Part is to provide basic guidance in certifying the fundamental construction of photovoltaic modules presented for safety approval by testing under GB/T 20047.2. These requirements are intended to minimise the misapplication and misuse of modules or the breakdown of internal components which would result in fire, electric shock and personal injury. The Part defines the basic safety construction requirements and additional tests that are a function of the module end-use applications. Component requirements are intended to provide evidence of performance of that component appropriate to its application in the module construction and environment. NOTE: The additional construction requirements outlined in relevant ISO standards, or the national or local codes which govern the installation and use of these modules in their intended locations, should be considered in addition to the requirements contained within this Part. 2 Normative references
