The Instituto Tecnológico de la Energía, ITE, has the adequate means for the characterization and control of the photovoltaic panels’ electrical peculiarities thanks to its solar simulator of latest technology that make it possible different activities:
- Check the quality of the panels by verifying their characteristic curve and the data provided by the “flash-list”.
- Group panels according to their characteristics for an optic connecting.
- Detect and separate defective panels whose characteristics differ markedly from the others.
- Testing of crystalline photovoltaic panels according to IEC 61215:2005 and of thin-film photovoltaic panels according to IEC 61646:2008.
