2015-12-19 Ukraine: Automated Complex Certification Solar Cells Based on LED Simulator with Improved Spectral Characteristics and Functionalities


Automated Complex Certification Solar Cells Based on LED Simulator with Improved Spectral Characteristics and Functionalities

Description of the project offered: 
The development of cost-effective automated measuring complex, consisting of solar simulator based on light-emitting diodes, microcontroller control system, associated software, which allows certification of solar cells express on their current-voltage characteristics - is relevant. The Project will use modular design of the radiating element simulator whereby powerful super bright LEDs are included in the light-emitting cells, which are symmetrically arranged on the surface of the radiating element, which allows easy addition of additional cells to increase as the radiation power and the area in which implements the required irradiation modes. The device is supposed to perform as a prefix to the personal computer (PC). The device will provide conversion coming from the computer control of a digital signal to analog form and its subsequent submission to the actuators to create the desired physical measurement conditions. Device will be implemented at the hardware level optimal principles for physical parameters measuring of the test sample - current and voltage, and their subsequent conversion into digital form for transmission to a PC. Exchange of digital information with installed on your computer program control and data management, is expected to produce a standard interface for USB. The project is assumed to develop a computer program to determine the parameters of the equivalent circuit of diode structures, as well as the output characteristics of solar cells The basic idea, which is supposed to lay in the program, based on the approximation of the experimental light and dark current-voltage characteristics of solar cells using a known theoretical expressions for these current-voltage characteristics (CVC). As an optimization function is used functional obtained for the least squares method on the basis of the theoretical expressions for the CVC and the experimental data on the measurement of current-voltage characteristic
