The first series can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwjmzKz8DqY&list=PL05DCC80A8E4EAB09&index=17 In this video I give an overview of what I'm trying to achieve and then focus on solar cell / panel testing. The testing is to try and find the best solar cell for the project. I'm doing the testing indoors under controlled conditions. I use a metal halide light and electronic DC load. This allows me to adjust for light and heat conditions to find the maximum power point of the solar cell (MPP, MPPT, maximum power point tracking). I test a range of solar cells: amorphous, monocrystalline, polycrystalline. I then test the use of Peltier cooling / heating elements and heat sinks as a solution to help cool the solar cells for long test durations.
