PV Measurement and Calibration Laboratory

Irradiance Sensor Calibration

Our accredited services include the calibration of pyranometers and reference cells used for irradaince measurements. Both are calibrated on our steady-state solar simulator with excellent long- and short-term irradiance stability, homogeneity and spectral match. Mismatch Factor correction is applied to PV devices resulting in a minimal increase in measurement uncertainty above that of the reference standard used for calibration.
