In this work the construction and characterization of a new device for the accurate measurement of busbarless, bifacial solar cells is presented. The measuring apparatus was designed and built according to the principle of the N.I.C.E.™ (New Industrial Cells Encapsulation) technology. For reasons of comparability, the measurement setup was based as closely as possible on the setup of manufactured N.I.C.E.™ mini modules. This equipment is used to determine the series resistance as a function of the vacuum and the temperature prevailing in the module. The results obtained are then compared with the results of manufactured solar modules in order to assess how well the test setup predicts the performance of the cell in the subsequent module.
