The SSIVT is a complete electrical current-voltage (I-V) measurement system used to characterize photovoltaic cell performance. This current-voltage tester works by sampling current at different voltages of the photovoltaic cell with a variable impedance load. The system can generate I-V curve of samples like Solar cells.
This I-V Measurement System has a 4 wire Kelvin configuration to remove the resistance effects of the leads and bias the cell at specific voltages.
The I-V Measurement System SSIVT-2KF includes:
A) Keithley SMU, Model 2400 and BI100 loadbooster system
- Power: 2000W
- Max V: 200V
- Max I: 10A
BI100 provides 100x current multiplication when on 0.1A scale of K2400
B) Sciencetech’s SciPV: IV Software for Windows-based control.
- Windows 7/10 32/64bit
C) RS232 to USB dongle
Additional monitoring electronics are provided for flash IV measurement capability
The SSIVT-20KF works with all Sciencetech Flash Solar Simulators.
