In framework of an applied research project a test facility for evaluating the performance of photovoltaic (PV) solar generators has been implemented at the Faculty of Engineering in Port Said-Egypt. The goals of the project is to perform the different required tests on photovoltaic (PV) solar generators in order to verify the fulfillment of the international standard specifications and to verify the characteristics given by the manufacturer. This will be achieved determining the electrical, the thermal and the mechanical characteristics of the module. This test can be considered to be a preparation for Egyptian PV market helping for propagation and harmonisation of standards. The developed test facility is including the main tests of PV systems, e.g. the electrical output under normal operating conditions and the influence of different environmental factors.
