With the HPLS, RnD and certification labs can perform:
- Accurate Power determination of all PV module types and technologies
- Stabilization and LeTID tests
- Accurate temperature coefficient measurements
- Energy rating testing
Eternalsun Spire has developed a High-Performance AAA+ Light Soaker (HPLS) with extremely accurate temperature control and in-situ IV characterization. The system combines AAA+ class steady state illumination (IEC60904-9 ed. 3 ready) and extremely accurate and uniform temperature control from -10 to 95 C, allowing in-situ IV measurements. It can measure the metastability of thin film modules such as CIGS, CdTe, GaAs; IV measurements of OPV, Perovskite and tandem cells, perform temperature coefficient measurement and test of cell coupons. Temperature stability is ± 1°C, which is the main contributor to the improved accuracy of measurement, and can be integrated with humidity control.
