Second international spectroradiometer intercomparison: preliminary results and impact on PV device calibration.
In: "28th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition", 30/09/2013 - 04/10/2013, Paris, France. pp. 3460-3465.
This paper describes the preliminary results of an intercomparison of spectroradiometers for global (GNI) and direct normal incidence (DNI) irradiance in the visible (VIS) and near infrared (NIR) spectral regions together with an assessment of the impact these results may have on the calibration of triple-junction photovoltaic devices and on the relevant spectral mismatch calculation. The intercomparison was conducted by six European scientific laboratories and a Japanese industrial partner. Seven institutions and seven spectroradiometer systems, representing different technologies and manufacturers were involved, representing a good cross section of the todays available instrumentation for solar spectrum measurements.
