I-V tracer for 100kw photovoltaic plants

This solar array curve tracer was designed initially to validate ITER’s own facilities, but has proved itself a useful and reliable tool. It is able to record and display the full characteristic curve of a photovoltaic system of up to 900V (Voc) and 200A (Isc). The machine is contained in a sealed briefcase, and is battery-powered. It has its own screen for immediate visualisation, and records the data for subsequent processing though a PC.
