Abstract/Summary:


A steady state solar simulator has been set up at the ZAE Bayern. The system is meant to be used for the characterization of photovoltaic (PV) of various technologies. In particular, it can be used for pre-conditioning of thin film modules in order to enable reliable power and I-V measurements. Furthermore, it allows for determining the temperature coefficient of PV modules of various technologies. The latter application will also be discussed in this work. Here, the optimization of the steady state solar simulator based on a method originally introduced by Hishikawa et al. for pulsed solar simulators is described and the results of this optimization are presented.
