The 6 channel outdoor Photovoltaic (PV) module(s) evaluation system based on the MP-160 is designed to measure I-V curve and module back-side temperature, to evaluate the performance of each module under natural sun light and weather conditions. The main instrument in this system is the MP-160 I-V Tracer, with an additional 6 channel selector for PV modules and a 12 channel selector for thermocouple or irradiance sensors. The measurement software “MP160.exe” controls the MP-160 and selectors. I-V curve, temperature and solar irradiance of each module are measured one by one sequentially. By setting the start, finish time of the day and time interval, the system measures all modules uninterrupted over a long period of time.

Applications and uses

Usually, the performance of a PV module is measured at the factory under the so-called Standard Test Conditions (STC), described in IEC 60904. This is a convenient test method that ...
