Automatic Test System for the Basic Properties of Solar Cells


Article Preview

A solar cells test system that can be used in the natural environment is designed, which can complete a variety of test experiments on different types of solar cells under different environmental conditions. In the testing process, the basic properties of solar cells are given and recorded in real time. Since installed and operated, the system works stable. Experimental results show that the test system has high accuracy and repeatability, and in line with the requirements of solar cells testing.
