BLISS, M. ... et al, 2014. LEDs based characterisation of photovoltaic devices. International Conference on Energy Efficient LED Lighting and Solar PhotoVoltaic Systems Conference, Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India, 27th-29th March 2014
This work discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using LEDs in a solar simulator. Details of a prototype simulator developed in CREST are given and ongoing developments of the system are discussed. Possible applications unique to simulators using LEDs are outlined, which show its potential to outperform conventional systems and reduce measurement uncertainties while at the same time offering an extensive variety of device performance investigation avenues.
