IEC 60904-8 | Measurement of spectral responsivity of a photovoltaic (PV) device (II)

IEC 60904-8 describes the requirements for the spectral responsivity of both linear and non-linear photovoltaic devices. The spectral responsivity of PV devices is used in cell development and cell analysis, as it provides a measure of recombination and other processes occurring inside the semiconductor or cell material system.

This chapter follows on from IEC 60904-8 (I), and describes four sections: measurement of spectral responsivity using a constant light source, measurement of spectral responsivity under pulsed light, measurement of series-connected modules and report.
