Author Affiliations +
A solar simulator capable of producing an irradiance of 300 suns is reported. Technical challenges were not limited to optical design; developing a methodology to measuring 300 suns was difficult. This document reports on the design of the custom fabricated solar simulator, the measurement methodology for high-powered solar concentrator measurements and empirical results validating the desired simulated power density as well as the irradiance stability, spectral accuracy, beam uniformity and irradiance beam size.
