System for Solar Cells Characterisation


Setup for measurement I-V curves of solar cells (SC) has been designed and constructed by "PV Test Solutions" based on the experience gained during many years research work in field of photovoltaics. With optional software for classifying cells into 16 classes, the setup enables both fast, routine measurements as are typical for small, medium or even large production scale of SCs as the end-of-line tester/sorter as well as more sophisticated laboratory tests, cell characterization and classification. Special care has been mainly taken for accuracy, good resolution and reproducibility of measurements. Great flexibility of the system which enables measurement of SCs of any size and shape in a wide range of biasing voltages and currents for both light and dark measurements is another advantage of the system, particularly when used on laboratory scale.

In the following sections specified units will be described in more details.
