  • A large-area collimation solar simulator is designed and manufactured. The diameter of effective irradiated surface reaches 1 100 mm, the average irradiance reaches 1.3 sun constants(AM0), and the angle of collimation beam is 1.59. This paper firstly describes the optical system of the solar simulator, and expounds the light source selection and layout, ellipsoidal reflector and collimating mirror design respectively. Secondly, this paper introduces the system structure, and then expounds the system simulation and implementation. The experiments show that the average irradiance reaches 1 760 W/m2; the irradiance non-uniformity reaches 4.6%; the irradiance temporal instability is up to 1.36%; and the solar simulator spectral match meets the ASTM E927-10 the AM0 class B requirements in the wavelength range of 300-1400 nm. The solar simulator provides a precise and reliable platform of thermal vacuum and heat balance tests for the space payload.
