The results of the PEP `87 round robin calibration of reference solar cells and modules. Final report

Technical Report:

Abstract

Initiated by the Photovoltaic Solar Energy Project (PEP) of the Technology, Growth and Employment Working Group of the Summit, a second international intercomparison (PEP`87 Round-Robin Calibration) on the calibration of reference solar cells and PV modules was carried out from 1987 to 1989 where PTB and ISE (FRG) served as operating agents. This report documents the final results of this intercomparison. A summary of this report was presented at the 21st IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference. The round robin was required for two reasons: First, the dispersion of the results (definition, see Section 1.4) of the eight participants of the first PEP Round Robin 1984/85 where greater than expected with 2 {sigma}{sub rel} values of 5.6% and 12.2% for crystalline and amorphous Si reference cells, respectively. Second, a comparative study of calibration methods and of reference cell design and technology is required for the standardization of calibration methods and reference devices desired by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC TC82). Also more experience in the calibration is needed. (orig.).
