Abstract: The World Photovoltaic Scale (WPVS) is used as a world-wide reference value for terrestrial PV performance measurements of Istc, the short-circuit current under Standard Test Conditions. The WPVS has already been established in 1997 based on an international comparison where a set of 20 transfer/travelling standards were circulated between 11 national laboratories (1). After the first recalibration carried out at NREL in 1999 (2), the PTB acted as pilot laboratory for the second recalibration, i.e. the 2003/04 intercomparison.
