The temperature effect on photovoltaic modules is usually quantified by means of some coefficients relating the variations of the open‐circuit voltage, of the short‐circuit current, and of the maximum power to temperature changes. In this paper, comprehensive experimental guidelines to estimate the temperature coefficients when measurements are performed outdoors are given. In addition, a correction procedure is applied to the short‐circuit current to cancel out the influence of the…
