January 18, 2011 -- Photovoltaics World will host a free webcast with Bryan Bond, business development manager, Konica Minolta Sensing, February 9, 2011, at 2PM EST. Bond will discuss the classification and need of measuring a solar simulator. The Webcast is free to attend and will include a Q&A with the speaker.
Many solar simulators' spectrums differ and change over a period of time. Measuring these changes helps ensure the proper spectral response for solar cell testing. Along with proper spectral response, correct intensity output of 1000mW/cm2 is required for proper cell measurement. Reference cells are an integral portion of tuning a solar simulator to a proper output. Various ways to measure these items will be discussed during the webinar.
Bryan Bond is a graduate of West Virginia University with bachelor of science degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering. He has worked in Information Technology Management and 3D digital imagining, and currently leads the Photovoltaic division of Konica Minolta Sensing. He is a Microsoft-Certified Professional, a saleslogix certified administrator and has multiple published articles in SNAME, CMSC, and Pittsburgh Engineer.
