International Electrotechnical Commission

the current a module can withstand in the reverse direction to normal without damage to the module. This rating is obtained from the manufacturer at expected operating conditions

NOTE 1 This current rating does not relate to bypass diode rating. The module reverse current is the current flowing through the PV cells in the reverse direction to normal current.

NOTE 2 A typical figure for crystalline silicon modules is between 2 and 2,6 times the normal short circuit current rating ISC MOD.
