This paper reports on the results of the fifth spectral irradiance measurement intercomparison and the impact these results have on the spread of spectral mismatch calculations in the outdoor characterization of reference solar cell and photovoltaic (PV) devices. Ten laboratories and commercial partners with their own instruments were involved in the comparison. Solar spectral irradiance in clear sky condition was measured with both fast fixed and slow rotating grating spectroradiometers. This paper describes the intercomparison campaign, describes different statistical analysis used on acquired data, reports on the results, and analyzes the impact these results would have on the primary calibration of a c-Si PV reference cell under natural sunlight.

Abstract

This paper reports on the results of the fifth spectral irradiance measurement intercomparison and the impact these results have on the spread of spectral mismatch calculations in the outdoor characterization of reference solar cell and photovoltaic (PV) devices. Ten laboratories and commercial partners with their own instruments were involved in the comparison. Solar spectral irradiance in clear sky condition was measured with both fast fixed and slow rotating grating spectroradiometers. This paper describes the intercomparison campaign, describes different statistical analysis used on acquired data, reports on the results, and analyzes the impact these results would have on the primary calibration of a c-Si PV reference cell under natural sunlight.
