Abstract

FOR PORTABLE MEASUREMENTS, A CAPACITOR TYPE ELECTRONIC LOAD WAS DEVELOPED, AND CONNECTED TO A DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM. IT MEASURED THE CURVES OF PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER PLANTS WITH SHORT CIRCUIT CURRENTS UP TO 80A, OR OPEN CIRCUIT VOLTAGES UP TO 500V. THE PAPER CONTAINS CALIBRATION PROCEDURES AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE INSTRUMENT. FUTURE IMPROVEMENTS COULD INCLUDE ANOTHER TWO CHANNEL A10 CONVERTOR CARD IN THE BOARD MEMORY AND RS232 OUTPUT, TO REDUCE THE POWER CONSUMPTION LEADING TO LOWER WEIGHT OF THIS PORTABLE INSTRUMENT.
