QuickSun 550CE Testing Station is a fully automated solar simulator for qualifying of PV modules with dimensions up to 105 x 205 cm2. High resolution EL imaging, Electrical Safety measurement tools are integrated in the same system. Throughput of 60–150 modules per hour is achieved depending on the applied EL and Electrical Safety testing parameters.
QuickSun 550CE is certified by TÜV Rheinland and a detailed test report is included with every simulator proving Class A+A+A+ performance with respect to spectrum, irradiance non-uniformity and short term instability (STI). Long term instability (LTI) is also within Class A+ tolerances during the 40 ms long flash pulse. IV characteristics are recorded with an electronic load and proprietary electronics unit which measures voltage, current and irradiance signals when module is swept e.g. from short circuit to open circuit or vice versa.
