It is well known that open circuit voltage and output voltage decreases significantly while operating temperature of PV cell/module increases. This means reduction of conversion efficiency of cell/module. On the other hand, short circuit current increases slightingly with rise of temperature. In the study, an experimental structure and procedure has been constructed and performed in order to show behavior of PV cell/module depending on rise of temperature. The proposed experimental procedure is applicable for almost all renewable/alternative energy technology laboratories. Experimental results obtained from the structure for two different illumination values are given on figures and shown how open circuit voltage and short circuit current changes at these illumination values.
