The tuning of the assembly line of concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) modules is an important task to ensure that the efficiency of modules made at the production line is as high as those fabricated in the development phase. A solar simulator for CPV and a module optical analyzer (MOA) are proposed to be used in production to improve the quality of the assembling process (both during the tuning of the production line and once it is completed). Moreover, the usefulness of performing a quality control based on maximum power and optical pointing of modules is discussed by performing a deep analysis of some modules manufactured in the production line and characterized both indoors and outdoors.
