Summary / Abstract: This paper demonstrates the development of mobile photovoltaic test laboratory. The fully enclosed cabinet design can not only shield the ambient light but also control the temperature conditions. On-site test deployment can also be faster and more stable. The innovative design based on an expandable mechanism and oil-hydraulic stretch platform has allowed to implement a solar simulator of tunnel type in a vehicle that weighs less than 3,500 kg and to have the stable optical performance. The Spectral match, non-uniformity of irradiance and temporal instability of irradiance of the simulator remain the parameters defined as class A+A+A+, the characteristic of spectrum also with high SPC and low SPD accredited IEC 60904-9:2020.
