SEMI PV80 - Specification of Indoor Lighting Simulator Requirements for Emerging Photovoltaic
This Standard was technically approved by the Photovoltaic Global Technical Committee. This edition was approved for publication by the global Audits and Reviews Subcommittee on August 18, 2017. Available at www.semiviews.org and www.semi.org in February 2018.
The International Commission on Illumination (CIE) has defined some lighting spectra for different indoor colorful applications and situations. However, the requirements for color testing do not apply to related indoor energy harvesting under different lighting uniformity and stability, for performance measurement of emerging photovoltaic (PV) and device. Furthermore, countless types of indoor lighting patterns are required to do performance characteristics measurement for different application contexts.
This activity shall develop a new specification of indoor lighting simulator requirement for performance measurement of emerging PV and device qualification.
The emerging PV includes DSSC, OPV and PSC. Indoor lighting simulator will address the performance of emerging PV device.
The proposed Standard aims to develop a durability test method to evaluate emerging PV. This activity will develop an evaluation principle and guild line for industries to follow and speed up the research for emerging PV products as well. This activity shall develop a new specification of indoor lighting simulator requirements for performance measurement of emerging PV and device qualification. The objective is to focus on specification of indoor lighting, and provides some actions as below:
- Define the specific spectrum of indoor lighting simulator.
- Define the classification of indoor lighting simulator.
For other PV technologies, the proposed qualification would be helpful to refer to in similar low light application like emerging PV.
