Extrapolation of outdoor measurements of PV array I-V characteristics to standard test conditions
The importance of extrapolating the actual results of outdoor measurements of the electrical characteristics of a photovoltaic array to standard test conditions (STC) is discussed and a practical procedure is proposed. Data obtained at the EnRa facility of the JRC Ispra are used to demonstrate this method for the determination of the STC value of the open-circuit voltage.
