Results, typical services & projects

  • Measurement of CPV module or cells: maximum power and acceptance angle at standard conditions, or other conditions as required.
  • Characterization and evaluation of misaligments inside the module and its influence on performance, its causes and potential improvement in the production line.
  • Combined system and component level testing to determine causes of performance losses.
  • Determination of sensitivity of modules, cells, and optics sensitivities to spectrum and temperature.
  • Module optimization for energy generation ata particular site.
  • Monitoring of module characterization during outdoor exposure.


Participation in projects

This infrastructure has already been used (tested) in the following research projects:

  • SOPHIA EU project "PhotoVoltaic European Research Infrastructure" (grant agreement 262533) providing transnational access in several project with the CPV industry;
  • other  EU projects funded by the EU Commission (NACIR, NGCPV, ECOSOLE, CPV MATCH and more than 10 national project funded by the Spanish Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad
  • Tens of private collaborations with the CPV industry
