Solar Simulation Laboratory (Room ZN1013)

In this laboratory, students and researchers can carry out different solar energy research experiments including solar photovoltaic, solar thermal, solar cooling and solar lighting system tests. Two solar simulators are provided to test the electrical characteristics of solar cells and PV modules. The thermal performance of PV modules, solar collectors and BIPV/T modules can be tested as well in the lab. Other renewable energy test rigs are also available, such as an inline water pipe hydropower generation system and a solar-assisted air conditioning system.
