Photovoltaic Terminology Standards
This category include standards referring to basic terminology of solar electric
systems. Most important standards related to terminology are ISO 80000 Part 7 and
IEC/TS 61836. ISO 80000 Part 7 standard gives names, symbols and definitions for
quantities and units for light and other electromagnetic radiation. Where
appropriate, conversion factors are also given. IEC/TS 61836 gives most important
photovoltaic related terms.
