Changing the world with compelling ideas (Solar Event)

  1. 1. © IBC SOLAR 2013 CHANGING THE WORLD WITH COMPELLING IDEAS Quality is neccessary, but how can it be achieved? , Britta Späth, Director Quality Assurance, 01.03.2013
  2. 2. 1 © IBC SOLAR 2013 It all begins with a data sheet, A certificate And whole a lot of enthusiasm! Challenge: Do the used materials match the certified materials? Quality is given, but how is it achieved?
  3. 3. 2 © IBC SOLAR 2013 Development continues: specification Currently includes: - Electrical parameters - Mechanical parameters - Materials used - Packaging specifications - Specification of flash data - And much more… Module specification currently has more than 65 data points without illustrations or images. Continuous development of additional requirements. Future regulations are considered (ROHS, Reach,…) Next challenge: How can we determine the arrangement of materials in detail? Quality is given, but how is it achieved?
  4. 4. 3 © IBC SOLAR 2013 Inclusion of quality criteria Agreement on production details - Mechanical data - Tolerances regarding length, width and diagonal dimensions - Miter gap - Cell positioning - Laminate - Permissible bubble size - Ripples in the Tedlar - Silicone residue - Scratches on glass or back side Quality is given, but how is it achieved?
  5. 5. 4 © IBC SOLAR 2013 Inclusion of quality criteria - Agreement on production details - Cells - Small disruptions on corners/ edges - Variations in reflection coating - Screen print disruptions - And much more Challenge: How can we ensure a systematic inspection regime for recording statistically credible values at manageable costs? Quality is given, but how is it achieved?
  6. 6. 5 © IBC SOLAR 2013 Development of an incoming goods inspection system in accordance to DIN ISO 2859-1 - Defining an acceptable quality level (AQL) - The AQL defines the acceptable number of differing products within a single lot. - Determination of varying lot sizes - Container, transport truck - Assigning of the right inspection level - Incorporating of the available preliminary information - Result leads to sampling instruction Quality is given, but how is it achieved?
  7. 7. 6 © IBC SOLAR 2013 Performance checks („flashing tests“) Quality is given, but how is it achieved?
  8. 8. 7 © IBC SOLAR 2013 Electroluminescence (EL) measurement - Localization of micro cracks - Analysis of transport damages - Evaluation of packaging concepts Quality is given, but how is it achieved?
  9. 9. 8 © IBC SOLAR 2013 Testing: laminate and soldering quality Quality is given, but how is it achieved?
  10. 10. 9 © IBC SOLAR 2013 Testing laminate quality Quality is given, but how is it achieved? Delamination as a result of DHT Corrosion of string connectors Bubble formations on back side
  11. 11. 10 © IBC SOLAR 2013 Yield test using the in-house testing system of IBC SOLAR Quality is given, but how is it achieved?
  12. 12. 11 © IBC SOLAR 2013 Implementation of a second party audit in collaboration with SGS-TÜV Quality is given, but how is it achieved?
  13. 13. 12 © IBC SOLAR 2013 Initiating a second party audit in collaboration with SGS-TÜV GmbH - 1. General impression of the company: The “General Impression of the Company” category deals mostly with the overall cleanliness of the production environment in addition to work safety and environmental protection issues. - 2. Data availability and IT security: The IT system of the audited company is inspected in this category. Access to warranty- related data is also checked, among other things. - 3. Suitability of production equipment: This comprehensive inspection program analyzes how suitable the production chain is for the task of manufacturing products with a long service life. Thanks to the experience we have gained as a system provider since 1982, IBC Solar is able to identify and remove all the weak points that can arise in the production line. Quality is given, but how is it achieved?
  14. 14. 13 © IBC SOLAR 2013 Initiating a second party audit in conjunction with SGS-TÜV GmbH - 4. Production check: At this point of the audit the method used for testing the individual components, sub- products and end-products throughout the production chain is evaluated. - 5. Quality management: At this stage the manufacturer must verify the company structures that guarantee access to quality assurance in production. In addition, the knowledge of employees regarding quality issues is evaluated along with their ability to identify quality deficiencies. - 6. Employee qualification: This part of the audit deals with how well trained each employee is. The audited company must provide written evidence regarding the instruction and training of individual work steps and machinery maintenance. Quality is given, but how is it achieved?
