Descripción
A device capable of quickly, inexpensively, and accurately characterizing module performance in a production setting is necessary for further development of the concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) industry. Without a solar simulator that can reliably and repeatably measure performance characteristics of CPV modules, it will be difficult to market this new technology. SolFocus Inc, in collaboration with the Instituto de Energia Solar at the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, has developed such a device to support production of its SF1000 CPV module. The system incorporates a number of novel approaches, including a proprietary single-flash measurement system that allows an entire IV curve to be gathered during the extremely short duration pulse of a relatively inexpensive commercial flash strobe and a reference measurement system and uniformity mask tailored to SolFocus CPV modules. The system described in this paper has been in operation at the Noida facility since December 2007 and 100% of modules produced since have been tested. Results of a preliminary correlation study are presented.
