With the increasing efficiency demands of photovoltaic (PV) industry, a number of new design and high efficiency silicon solar cells were appeared. Photovoltaic module performance measurement has become more important. The traditional simulator with standard spectrum and short pulse cannot test modules performance accurately, especially in high efficiency solar modules. In this work we studied the current–voltage (I–V) performance comparison of different type crystalline silicon modules with four laboratories. In this paper intercomparison results of short-circuit current (Isc), open circuit voltage (Voc), maximum output power (Pmax), and fill factor (F.F.) are discussed. Finally, we found the optimum solution of transient effect on the high efficiency HIT (Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin layer) and bifacial solar modules. The solar simulator used 120msec long pulse can improve these defects for high-efficiency solar modules measurement.
