(download brochure)

LPKSF (Laboratorium Pengujian Komponen Sistem Fotovoltaik - Photovoltaic Components and Systems Testing Laboratory) is one of the test laboratories in B2TKE (SNI ISO/IEC 17025:2008 LP-096-IDN certified).
The purpose of measuring and testing components is to check the conformity of the technical specifications provided by the manufacturer, as well as to provide a technical overview of the system performance.
The measurement and testing of components are carried out according to the procedures of BSN (The Indonesian Standardization Body).
Scope of Testing is adapted to the conformity standard of SNI ISO / IEC 17025: 2008
  1. Photovoltaic Module Testing
  2. Solar Power System Testing
  3. DC Fluorescent Lamp Testing
  4. BCR (Battery Charge Regulator) Testing
  5. Inverter Testing
  6. Off-grid System Testing
Photovoltaic Module Testing
Testing of photovoltaic module in the form of characteristic curve I-V is carried out according to the procedure in SNI 04-3850.2-1995 point 6.
  • Photovoltaic Module Testing uses SPI-Sun Simulator SLP 4600. It is a photovoltaic module test kit that features a lighting source according to the solar spectrum. This tool complies with the standard test condition used to measure photovoltaic modules (1000w/m2). This Spire Simulator can test both for crystal film modules and thin-film type modules.
  • Battery measurements are made in accordance with the procedures listed in SNI 04-6392-2000 item 8 (nominal battery capacity) and item 9 (battery cycle capability).
  • Testing and recording of data is logged using BITRODE LCN 25-12, LCN 50-12, LCN 100-12. 
Battery Testing
Measurement of batteries according to the procedures listed on SNI 04-6329-2000 item 8 (nominal battery capacity) and item 9 (battery cycle capability).
Testing and recording of data is logged using BITRODE LCN 25-12, LCN 50-12, LCN 100-12.
Lamp Testing
Fluorescent Lamp is tested according to SNI 04-6393-2000 procedure 7.9 (the ability of the ignition cycle and 7.10 (electrical performance and efficacy).
