Variable Illumination Measurements Setup

Methodology

The LEDVIM bench is a laboratory instrument for fast acquisition of the current-voltage (I-V) curves of 4-cell modules (36cm×36cm) in illumination conditions varying between a few W/m² to more than 1000 W/m². The variable illumination is provided by a matrix comprised of 49 LEDs.
