Abstract

The spectral response measurement of photovoltaic (PV) modules is carried out using the measurement procedure of R van Steenwinkel. This procedure is very time consuming and labour intensive. The interference filters, used to produce monochromatic light, are placed manually in front of the flash lamp of the Pasan Large Area Sun Simulator (LAPSS). The new automatic large area spectral response facility replaces the filter changing by hand. It is also able to run a set of measurements and calculate the mismatch factor automatically.
