Note to experiment:

Due to natura of remote experiment, it would be difficult and long lasting to measure VA characteristics point after point from the place of experimentator. That's why there is generated voltage for photovoltaic cell, which increases linearly with time, in the task, the immediate value of voltage and current is measured. So the VA characteristics is measured in one increase of voltage. This can be repeated so average can be calculated to reduce error when measuring current.
