Abstract : A new primary standard solar cell calibration procedure has been defined which is expected to provide a more nearly absolute basis for determining solar cell performance. A preliminary design for a portable tester is set forth, the purpose of which is to measure the output of solar converter power supplies under a wide range of radiation conditions and extrapolate to space solar radiation conditions. Data on solar cell performance parameters, currents, voltages, etc., as a function of radiant energy intensity and temperature are presented. Spectral response data are presented. (Author)
