AzRISE/TEP Test Yard
AzRISE – testing and evaluation of solar energy and grid devices
The Arizona Research Institute for Solar Energy (AzRISE), is a research center that enables multi-disciplinary research, development, and practical implementation of solar energy solutions to meet our energy needs. AzRISE creates innovative collaborations in research, education, and outreach.
The AzRISE/TEP Test Yard offers two test environments: a full-scale accelerated degradation chamber and outdoor solar test yard. The Test chamber enables complete control of environmental conditions, accelerated exposure times, ability to perform stress tests, and is fully instrumented for in-situ monitoring of device performance. The Test yard provides in-situ environments for real-time testing of PV modules as well as balance-of-system components and real-time data acquisition.
