Abstract

This paper aims to establish a virtual instrumental system to measure the characteristics of photovoltaic (PV) cells with instrumentation software LabVIEW™. The basic principles behind PV cells are explored in detail. The important characteristics of PV cells, including irradiation, open-circuit voltage, short-circuit current, and current-voltage curve, under different conditions are discussed. These characteristics are embedded in the LabVIEW™-based PV virtual instrumental system, which was created using graphical language and relative instrumental equipment. This system can be used to both measure and learn the basic configuration and characteristics of PV cells.
