Abstract: The calibration of photovoltaic reference cells used as primary laboratory standards for the calibration of photovoltaic devices needs to be traceable to international radiometric standards and SI units. This paper describes three methods establishing two independent traceability chains. The solar simulator method is traceable via a standard lamp to the international irradiance scale whereas the global sunlight method and the modified global sunlight method are traceable to the world radiometric reference. The calibration values obtained by the three methods agree with each other within their respective uncertainties and with the world photovoltaic scale within +/- 0.8%.
