In the earlier days, the chemistry involved in solar cell manufacturing was relatively simple, using commodity chemicals. With cell efficiencies continuously on the rise and new cell concepts slowly being introduced with increased speed of processing, precise chemical concentration control is becoming crucial to obtain consistency and more cost-effective manufacturing of solar panels. This is possible by monitoring on-line the etching bath composition, a small but genuine step forward in your competitive advantage....
The most important measurement parameter is irradiation. Since PV systems are becoming ever larger, the accuracy of the irradiation measurement is increasingly important for the efficiency of the system. Wind cools the temperature of the module and must therefore be included in the efficiency calculation. Precipitation leads to contamination or covering (snow). With increasing temperature, the performance of the solar module decreases. Therefore, it is important to measure the temperature of the solar module in...

Procal supply analysers to monitor many different applications from small combustion plants to large power stations. Examples include University Boiler Plants, Carbon Black Plants, Thermal Oxidisers and Community Heating Projects.
PV performance measurements under real outdoor conditions are done in may different ways. However, the concept of all performance investigations is to relate the input energy, which is the solar radiative flux, to the output energy, which is the electrical power produced by the PV module. EKO’s Solar Monitoring Stations, referred to as SMS, is the dedicated facility for this type of evaluation.
Monitoring the stability of a sun simulator enables the researcher to improve the stability of the PV cell and precision of the I-V measurement. The sun simulator is for example used to test the produced PV solar panel and classify it according to the STC standardization.
Sun simulators are available in different classes indicating the performance characteristics by the combination of three letters (A,B or C) (according to IEC 60904, JIS 8912 and ASTM E 927-05). Each letter represents respectively the spectral match with the solar spectrum (1000 W/m2, AM 1.5), uniformity of the light field and temporary stability. Class AAA are considered as most accurate and have an ideal spectral match between 0.75 and 1.25, max. 2.0% non-uniformity and 0.5% nonstability according to the IEC...
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 can be integrated in routine production procedures. However, the indoor measurement of the STC PV performance reveals the power production of the module at only one particular measurement condition.
