ISFOC currently owns all the necessary equipment to carry out the evaluation of a CPV technology. This evaluation is held both, at module level as well as at whole system or concentrator's (tracking system plus modules), and regardless if they are connected or not.

At concentrator's level, the same characterization in real operation conditions can be held, apart from comparing it with the results obtained for the module. With this info, an initial analysis of the concentrator performance is done by identifying the main factors of energy loses as for example, misalignment between the framework modules o dispersion between them, inverter loses or wiring.

Module evaluation consists in rationing the Nominal Power in standard measure conditions as well as checking and determining the performance in different operative conditions that may occur in different CPV Technology locations. All the tasks are being carried out in compliance the rule drft IEC 62670 "Concentrator Photovoltaic (CPV) Module and Assembly Performance Testing and Energy Rating" that is being currently developed with the active participation of ISFOC, which is feeding back its results to the Scientific International Committee.
