Abstract
This paper presents the characterization of five different concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) module technologies carried out with the Helios 3198 solar simulator at IES-UPM. The current-voltage characteristics under Standard Reporting Conditions (SRC) and the angular transmission curve were measured for each of these technologies. These parameters were also measured outdoors and then corrected to indoor conditions in order to compare them and demonstrate the validity of the indoor measurement. To ensure SRC indoors, a novel irradiance sensor has been used: a single lens-cell assembly of the same technology as the module to be measured, or ¿monomodule¿, which accounts for small differences between angular and electromagnetic spectra of the solar simulator light and that of the sun. Component (`isotype¿) cells are used alongside this sensor for assuring standard light spectrum indoors.
