Abstract

Its use is mandatory for the calibration of secondary standard pyranometers according to ISO 9060, and is recommended for the calibration of pyranometers which are used as reference instruments in comparisons. Is intended for use by test institutions or test laboratories equipped with well-maintained pyrheliometers and is applicable to all pyranometers. The object is to promote the uniform application of reliable methods to calibrate pyranometers, since accurate calibration factors are the basis of accurate hemispherical solar radiation data which are needed for solar energy test applications or simulations.
