Lab 7: The Photovoltaic Characterization

This is lab 7 of 7 in the course
by Dr. Petru A. COTFAS, Dr. Daniel T. COTFAS, Dr. Doru URSUTIU, and Dr. Cornel SAMOILA | Transilvania University of Brasov
The purpose of this lab is to study the behavior of some types of solar cells and mini solar panels, using the NI ELVIS II platform. Students will raise the I-V characteristic of the solar cell, determine some solar cell parameters, and investigate the the behavior of the cells if they are bound in series or parallel.
