Currently, there exists a broad range of photovoltaic modules whose outdoor performance can not be modelled successfully using existing standards and translation equations that were originally intended for use with mono-or poly-crystalline silicon devices. This work investigates the limits of operation of existing standards and explores new methods for characterizing the outdoor behaviour for CdTe, tandem and triple junction module technologies.
