At the highest grid connected photovoltaic (PV) plant in Europe, the 1.1 kWp installation at the Jungfraujoch (elevation 3454 m), the in-plane solar irradiance at the vertically (facade) mounted arrays has been measured both by a pyranometer and by a calibrated (Si) reference cell as part of an extended PV system performance study of nearly 2 years duration. On the basis of these results the impact of the radiation sensor characteristics on the performance data is discussed.
