Large-area solar simulation systems specialist Eternal Sun has supplied the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) with a solar-PV testing laboratory that includes a hot-spot measuring technology upgrade.
According to the company, ECN is now able to undertake PV module testing to the latest international standards.
Stefan Roest, CTO of Eternal Sun, said: “Designing the equipment for the hot-spot test according to the certification specifications was a challenge as this test is one of the most complex tests to perform. The successful completion of the project was realised because of the excellent cooperation with the employees of ECN.”
Jan Bultman, business development manager of the Solar Energy uni, saidt: “We are now able to measure behaviour of PV modules that we were not able to measure before”.
Eternal Sun has recently supplied a new testing lab to the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAS).
