Comparison of pyranometer and Si-reference cell solar irradiation data in long term PV plant monitoring
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.
