Abstract:

This research project consisted of writing a manual for testing solar cells. It was written for students in the Space Operations and Space Engineering curricula at the Naval Postrgraduate School. A location was selected and equipment was purchased for the construction. The manual begins with a introduction to solar cell theory. The individual components of the solar power laboratory are discussed in detail and their integration into a system is described. The system was designed for automated data acquisition. An IBM PCXT is the central point of the system. Two computer programs written in IBM BASIC are included for the user with a complete discussion of each.
