The characteristic current-voltage curves of solar cells

Item no.: P9512000

  • Description
  • Scope of Supply
  • Downloads and Documents


The maximum utilisable power of a solar cell is dependent on the intensity of the incident light. Characteristic current-voltage curves are prepared under various illuminations.


  • Experiment is part of a complete solution set with a total of 26 experiments for Renewable Energy solar cells, wind power, water power
  • Safe experimentation: the lamp is protected against touch, the housing is well ventilated with the aid of holes and is only slightly heated
  • Doubled learning success: Electric circuit diagram on top, real components can be seen at the bottom


How does a load change the current and voltage of a solar cell?

Load a solar cell with a variable resistor. Note the values of the current and voltage at various values of the loading resistance.
