KRAWCZYNSKI, M. ... et al, 2011. Spectral irradiance measurements for photovoltaic systems in maritime climates. IN: Proceedings of the 7th Photovoltaic Science Applications and Technology Conference (PVSAT-7), 1st-3rd April 2011, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, pp. 277-280.
Variety of materials used to manufacture
photovoltaic cells rises the question about
methods of accurate reference irradiance
measurements, which could be applied on
a level of photovoltaic plant deployment.
Mismatch between spectral sensitivity of
the photovoltaic module and reference
sensor used for irradiance measurements
increases uncertainty of available energy
rating. Significance of spectral mismatch
for overall energy production rating
depends also on spectral variations of the
solar radiation and circumstances of their
appearance. Western Europe stays under
the influence of maritime climate which is
characterized by reliable cloud cover and
high humidity. Carried campaign provides
analysis of the spectral radiation in
maritime climate and discusses its impact
in term of PV systems applications.
