The Solar Lab is intended for hands-on study of solar photoelectric elements. Hands-on experiments are implemented on two test benches: Indoor and Outdoor. The facility can be used for determination of major characteristics of solar elements, such as the open circuit voltage, short circuit current, I-V characteristics for different orientations of the panels and intensities of light sources.
