PV-powered lighting systems offer outdoor lighting where it is elsewhere cumbersome or expensive to enable lighting. Application of these systems at high latitudes, where the difference in day length between summer and winter is large and the solar energy is less requires smart dimming functions for reliable lighting. In this work we demonstrate interacting mathematical simulation tools and a laboratory facilities to characterize and dimension systems from “nose to tail” in great details to support improvement of the systems and to make accurate field performance predictions. The development process is demonstrated by real cases of product development.
