Testing the HiConPV CCM at 1000 suns using petal Academic Article uri icon


  • An approximately 10 cm x 10 cm dense array module of un-encapsulated single-junction GaAs cells was tested outdoors at various solar concentrations from 1-Sun to 1,000 Suns. This module was fabricated by Fraunhofer ISE [1] as part of the HICONPV project funded by the European Commission 6 th Framework R&D program. The outdoor tests consisted of two parts:(i) Tests performed on an outdoor test bench, at approximately 1-Sun, in order to be able to characterize the module under easily reproducible conditions [2]. These tests …
