A Major Advance in Solar Module Testing?

A Major Advance in Solar Module Testing?

Eternal Sun’s Large Area Steady State Simulators (LASSs) appear to represent a major advance in solar panel testing because they allow test labs to do a combination of things that they have not been able to do before. First, explained Eternal Sun Business Development Manager Clemens Bauer, they allow climate-variable testing while the modules are exposed to light. And, added CTO Stefan Roest, they are designed to allow continuous readings of the module’s performance in real time. According to PV Evolution Labs CEO Jenya Meydbray, this would be the first test chamber on the market with both of these capabilities. Some test chambers, he added, offer a wiring option that makes continuous real-time climate variable readings possible, but only in a dark test chamber. Eternal Sun is an outgrowth of research at the Netherlands’ Delft University, Bauer said. The goal of the resear...
