About Solar Testing

What is Solar PV Testing?
The term photovoltaic (PV) refers to a system that uses semiconductor materials to convert light into electricity - resulting in a photovoltaic effect. PV systems come in varying sizes and formats, so an understanding of PV components and how they are used is needed before PV testing can be performed.

Why do we test solar installations?
Solar PV systems have been, and are being, installed in vast numbers all over the World. Such systems are expected to perform for decades, but also during this period, operate safely. Unfortunately, many PV systems have not been correctly installed or placed into service with little ongoing maintenance, which ultimately leads to a loss in potential revenue from the installation but could be a danger to life.

How do we carry out Solar PV Testing?
Unlike most other electrical systems, the DC side of PV cannot always be switched off or made dead to allow electrical testing to be performed – you cannot switch off the Sun. In any case, certain electrical tests require irradiance data (Solar power per unit area) to be considered as part of the testing procedure (when comparing to Standard Test Conditions, STC).
