I-V curve testing is the preferred method for commissioning, O&M, and troubleshooting of PV arrays because it provides the most complete performance measurement possible. Populations of curves can be analyzed quickly for outliers and data can be archived as a baseline for future reference if performance questions arise.

The Solmetric PV Analyzer combines I-V curve tracing with built-in advanced PV modeling to provide the fastest and most complete measurements available for commissioning and troubleshooting PV arrays. 

The new PVA-1000s is rated for use in PV systems up to 1000 Volts and along with the included SolSensor wireless PV reference sensor, provides many other significant features, including:

  • I-V curve measurement with high accuracy and resolution 
  • Easy to use allowing high measurement throughput (many strings per day)
  • Increased solar window for more testing per day
  • 100m wireless solar sensor range
  • SmartTemp method for high cell temperature accuracy

Solmetric PV Analyzer

The Solmetric PV Analyzer Kit is a 1000 volt I-V curve tracer with built-in PV performance modeling and advanced wireless irradiance, temperature and tilt sensing. It provides unprecedented measurement throughput and accuracy and delivers deep insight into the performance of your arrays.

For each string, the PV Analyzer measures the I-V (current vs. voltage) and P-V (power vs. voltage) curves with a single button click. The measured results are compared to the expected performance, taking into account the irradiance and module cell temperature at the time of the I-V measurement. The I-V Unit communicates wirelessly to your Windows tablet or laptop (not included), enhancing safety and allowing freedom of movement during testing. Automated data analysis and reporting save you time.

The PV Analyzer is designed to work as hard as you do. High measurement throughput means it can measure 1 MW in less than 2 hours--even in hot environments where other curve tracers shut down. The rugged enclosure is moisture and dust resistant. The incident angle corrected SolSensor is able to make accurate irradiance readings in lower light conditions extending your working window.

PV Analyzer includes:

SolSensor Wireless PV Reference Sensor : Irradiance, module temperature, and tilt readings are captured at the instant the I-V curve is measured. Improves effectiveness of expected performance models. The SolSensor has a range of more than 100m and includes a module rail clamp and precision mounting system for accurate alignment.

PVA Test Leads : Enables connection directly to combiner box bus-bars.

I-V Data Analysis Tool : Excel macro for analysis of populations of curves and data plus report generation.
