Ecoprogetti’s LED light sourced sun simulator receives triple class A rating

Ecoprogetti’s sun simulator, ECOSUN10L, which employs LED’s as the light source has received a triple class ‘A’ rating under EN60904-9 and IEC 60904-09 specifications, undertaken by TÜV intercert. The specialist equipment manufacturer said the system was the first module LED simulator to work in triple class A and it is suitable both for testing standard crystalline modules, as well as thin film and back contact solar cell modules.

Ecoprogetti also noted that the impulse duration of the simulator could be extended to more than five seconds, while maintaining an A class radiation stability. That feature was said to exclude the phenomenon of capacitive effects making the unit usable on next-generation high-efficiency cells and low-loss junction boxes.

Publications

  • Photovoltaics International 23rd Edition

    This issue of Photovoltaics International, our 23rd, offers key insights into some of the technologies that are ready to move from lab to fab in support of these goals. ISC Konstanz offer a glimpse of what the low-cost, high-efficiency solar cells of the future might look like. On page 35 the institute’s authors give an overview of what they call Konstanz’ “technology zoo”, encompassing their so-called BiSoN, PELICAN and ZEBRA cell concepts, all of which are aimed at increasing energy yield at the lowest possible cost.
