The classification of both single pulsed solar simulators (Pasan and SpectroLab) used at ESTI (European Solar Test Installation) are determined according to the international standard (IEC 904-9). For the classification in-house developed instrumentation (SpectraCube and Large Area Detector Array) was used. The performance of the whole system has been verified on a weekly basis, on both simulators since 1992. This verification includes the performance of the light source, electronic load and data analysis. Recommendations for future improvements on the simulator design are given.
