Document Number: 6734
SNARF for: Revision of SEMI PV89 - Test Method of Current-Voltage (I-V) Measurement in Indoor Lighting for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell and Organic Photovoltaic With Title Change To SEMI PV89 - Test Method of Current-Voltage (I-V) Measurement in Indoor Lighting for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell and Organic Photovoltaic and Perovskite Solar Cell(PSC)

Originating Global Technical Committee: Photovoltaic
Originating TC Chapter: Taiwan
Task Force (TF) in which work is to be carried out: Organic and Dye Sensitized Solar Cell and Perovskite solar cell Task Force
Note: If a new task force is needed, also submit a task force organization form (TFOF)

1. Rationale:
a. Describe the need or problem addressed by this activity.
(Indicate the customer, what benefits they will receive, and if possible, quantify the impact on the return on investment [ROI] if the Document is implemented.)
This activity aims to propose a new test method for OPV/DSC/PSC device over a range of temperature and intensity conditions for different indoor lighting, and without hysteresis phenomenon due to capacity effect. The work includes characterizing spectral and angular effects, definition of temperature and light intensity indoors, evaluating instantaneous Pmax, and stating result in the form of a numerical rating. This activity shall develop a new test method of current-voltage (I-V) measurement in indoor lighting for OPV/DSC/PSC. The current SEMI PV89 measures the I-V method in Indoor Lighting for DSSC/OPV. PSC has the same capacitance effect as DSSC/OPV. In order to make the original method more clearly applicable to PSC. This activity shall modify and add the title and text to the PSC wording, and it has been clearly stated that this method is suitable for DSSC/OPV/PSC.

b. Estimate effect on industry.
2: Major effect on an industry sector - identify the relevant sector
Sector or Company Information:

c. Estimate technical difficulty of the activity.
II: Some Difficulty - Disagreements on known requirements exist but developing consensus is possible

2. Scope:
a: Describe the technical areas to be covered or addressed by this Document development activity. For Subordinate Standards, list common concepts or criteria that the Subordinate Standard inherits from the Primary Standard, as well as differences from the Primary Standard:
This activity shall develop a new test method for I-V performance measurement of OPV/DSC/PSC in indoor lighting and device qualification. The objective is to focus on specification of indoor lighting, and provides some actions as below
(1) To define the requirement of equipment for OPV/DSC/PSC performance measurement indoors.
(2) To define the specific measurement condition for OPV/DSC/PSC indoors.

b: Expected result of activity
Major revision to an existing Standard or Safety Guideline

5. Safety Considerations:
The resulting document is expected:
NOT to be a Safety Guideline

NOTE FOR "to be a Safety Guideline": When all safety-related information is removed from the Document, the Document is NOT technically sound and complete - Refer to Section 15.1 of the Regulations for special procedures to be followed.

NOTE FOR "NOT to be a Safety Guideline": When all safety-related information is removed from the Document, the Document is still technically sound and complete.

6. Intellectual Property Considerations:
a. For a new Standard or Safety Guideline and for any part to be modified or added in a Revision of published Standards and Safety Guidelines:
the use of patented technology is NOT required.

If "patented technology is intended to be included in the proposed Standard(s) or Safety Guideline(s) " is selected above, then also check one:

b. For Revision, Reapproval, Reinstatement, or Withdrawal of existing Standard(s) and Safety Guideline(s):
there is no known material patented technology necessary to use or implement the Standard(s) and Safety Guideline(s)

c. The body of the Document and any Appendices, Complementary Files, Related Information sections, or Various Materials that may or may not be a part of the Document by reference:
the incorporation of Copyrighted Item will NOT be required

NOTE FORthe use of patented technology or the incorporation of Copyrighted Item(s) is NOT required’: If in the course of developing the Document, it is determined that the use of patented technology or Copyrighted Item(s) is necessary for the Document, the provisions of Regulations 16 must be followed.

NOTE FORwill incorporate Copyrighted Item’: A copyright release letter must be obtained from the copyright owner prior to publication.
