|Abstract: ||Outdoor environmental variability generates the need for indoor systems for PV module characterisation. To combine the advantages of the most commonly used simulators (steady-state and pulsed) and eliminate their disadvantages, an LED-based solar simulator prototype has been developed. The system can produce light at variable flash speeds and pulse shapes or can operate as a continuous light source for long-term measurements. The system achieves 1-Sun intensity at a closely matched, continuous spectrum. Full control of all light sources allows variable intensity and spectral distribution during measurements. A technical description and the results of initial qualification tests are given.|
