Spectral response measurements of photovoltaic devices using a pulsed source solar simulator

This paper presents a method for spectral response determination of photovoltaic devices using a commercially available pulsed source solar simulator and broadband filters. A fitting algorithm which is an iterative process is developed to model the spectral response curve. The method is tested on two different technologies of photovoltaic modules and the result shows that a fair agreement between the modelled and calibrated spectral response could be achieved with the improvement in the quality of measurement.
