Solar cell and module analysis
Solar cells and modules are often characterized by ‘current voltage’ measurements, which are currently executed with multifunctional analysis equipment. These tools can place voltages on samples, for short, but also for longer periods, and analyze the output current. However, the existing tools (“Keithley Source-meters”) are relatively expensive and only allow the use for one solar cell or module at the time.
Within the TKI iDEEGO project TRUST, ReRa Solutions has developed and built a new type of electrical load, which allows both long and short term exposure to external voltages. The capabilities of this load have been studied and presented by Solliance in Eindhoven.
