BBA Large Area Steady State

Continuous light solar simulator to perform stabilization, hotspot and safety test of PV modules according to IEC standards

steady state solar simulator for PV modules

The BBA steady state solar simulator was designed to meet the requirements of PV test labs, certification bodies and research institutes for fast stabilization and temperature tests in an indoor controlled environment.

The BBA light soaker has lamp lifetime up to 9000h and the size of the simulator can be customized to fit two large modules or more. Thanks to cooling fans, the temperature can be stabilized at 50°C.

The user-friendliness of the system is indicated by the automated test procedure and easy lamp replacement.
