What equipment is needed for illuminated I-V measurements of a solar cell?

light source, 2 multimeters
light source, 2 multimeters, variable resistor, voltage source
light source of variable intensity, 2 multimeters, irradiance meter
Light source, 2 multimeters, variable resistor
PV analyser

I assume we obviously need a light source, 2 multimeters (one for current measurement and one for voltage measurement) and a variable resistor. As we move the variable resistor the I-V curve will change.

I got asked this question a while ago, and completed some illuminated I-V measurements, but I forgot what equipment I used and I can't find anything online at the moment.

That works.
