ICS Code (Solar energy engineering): 27.160
scope:

This part of IEC 904 gives requirements for solar simulators used for indoor testing of terrestrial flat plate (non-concentrating) photovoltaic devices in conjunction with a spectrally matched reference device. The output of a solar cell is a strong function of the wavelength of the incident spectral irradiance distribution. To reduce measurement errors, this standard specifies the acceptable match to the reference spectral irradiance distribution, but it should be noted that the magnitude of the error is also affected by the spectral response mismatch between the reference device and the test specimen.

This pari of IEC 904 covers both pulsed and steady-state simulators.
