  • This paper designs and develops a class AAA solar simulator and its spectral matching, Irradiance non-uniformity and irradiance temporal instability all can reach class A standard. It firstly describes the light source selection of the solar simulator and gives the design process of the filter. Then, it introduces the optical system and mechanical structure of the solar simulator. Finally the technical specifications of the simulator are measured. The experiments show that the solar simulator spectral match meet the ASTM E927-10 the AM1.5G class A requirements in the wavelength range of 400-1 100 nm. In an effective irradiated surface area of 55 mm55 mm, its average irradiance, Irradiance non-uniformity, and irradiance temporal instability have been up to 1 000 W/m2, 1.35% and 1.27%, respectively. Obtained data demonstrate that the solar simulator meets the standard ASTM E927-10 class AAA.
