During the experimental investigation of solar cells, the quality of the illumination is essential. In the case of solar simulators, the main goal is the accurate reproduction of sunlight. The designing procedure of a halogen LED hybrid solar simulator is described in this article. One of the main goals is the compliance with the relevant standard (ASTM E972).
