Photovoltaic (PV) module performance testing and energy rating - Part 4: Standard reference climatic profiles
|Publication Date:||1 October 2018|
|ICS Code (Solar energy engineering):||27.160|
This part of IEC 61853 describes the standard reference climatic profiles used for calculating energy ratings.
IEC 61853-1 describes requirements for evaluating PV module performance in terms of power (watts) rating. IEC 61853-2 describes test procedures for determining module temperature from irradiance, ambient temperature and wind speed, a method for measuring angle of incidence effects, and spectral responsivity. IEC 61853-3 describes the calculation of PV module energy rating values, using the data from IEC 61853-1, IEC 61853-2 and IEC 61853-4.
