    Abstract

    NOCT (Nominal Operating Cell Temperature) is defined as the cell temperature within an openrack mounted (45° from horizontal) module in the following conditions: ◀ total irradiance: 800 W□m-2 ◀ ambient temperature: 20°C ◀ wind speed: 1 m□s-1 ◀ electrical load: open circuit This paper investigates if: • the NOCT value remains the same irrespective of module size; • the NOCT value remains the same irrespective of electrical loading configuration (short-circuit,open-circuit or resistive load) • the NOCT value remains the same irrespective of type of irradiance sensor used (pyranometer or reference cell) • the low energy infrared photons of sunlight contribute to NOCT.
