Germany-based Wavelabs Photo voltaic Metrology Programs GmbH has launched two new photo voltaic simulators for high-efficiency cell testing, one to be used in manufacturing traces, and one to be used in analysis laboratories. Just like the module testing tools that Wavelabs launched earlier this week, the cell testing tools relies on its light-emitting diode (LED) flasher expertise.
The Sinus-360 PRO is designed to be available in line of cell producers. This was carried out to check high-efficiency photo voltaic cell applied sciences, similar to passivated emitter rear contact (PERC), heterojunction (HJT), and tunnel oxide passivated contact (TOPCon).
The scale of the illumination space is 260 mm x 260 mm, which suggests it may possibly accommodate newer, bigger cell sizes. It has nineteen individually managed LED channels with elective rear flasher, electroluminescence and infrared imaging modules, enabling producers to run a number of inspection protocols on a single, small-footprint machine.
The analysis lab-sized, Sinus-360 Superior, has twenty-seven individually managed LED channels, and is optimized to check perovskite-silicon tandem cells. A prototype has been utilized by researchers on the photo voltaic cell calibration laboratory (CalTec) on the Institute for Photo voltaic Vitality Analysis Hamelin in Germany since 2022.
“[It] offers us the best doable freedom to regulate the spectral distribution of the photo voltaic simulator. As well as, we’re prepared for measurements of tandem photo voltaic cells, which is able to develop into extra necessary sooner or later and whose measurement requires an adjustment of the irradiance of the person sub-cells,” mentioned Karsten Bothe, head of CalTec in a press release.
Sinus-360 Superior has been chosen because the Intersolar Award 2023 winner on the Munch-based Intersolar exhibition.
