Photovoltaic concentrators (CPV) - Performance testing - Part 1: Standard conditions
|Publication Date:||1 June 2014|
|ICS Code (Solar energy engineering):||27.160|
NEN-EN-IEC 62670-1 defines standard conditions for assessing the power produced by CPV systems and their photovoltaic subcomponents. The object of this part of IEC 62670 is to define a consistent set of conditions so that power ratings noted on data sheets and nameplates will have a standard basis. Two sets of conditions are included to characterize: a) operating conditions that represent on-sun performance relative to commonly measured meteorological conditions, and b) test conditions that represent performance when the module is in a readily reproducible environment.
