ENconditioning 
process for stabilizing the performance of a PV module prior to conducting an environmental test

NOTE 1 Conditioning is sometimes referred to as pre-conditioning

NOTE 2 Conditioning enables the effect of an environmental test to be determined without an extraneous shift in performance from an effect other than the specific environmental exposure

Generally, the conditioning is one of the following:

a) annealing conditioning

conditioning using a heat exposure process

b) light soaking conditioning

conditioning using a light exposure process
