  • NEC : See National Electrical Code.

  • NEMA : See National Electrical Manufacturers Association.

  • Nickel Cadmium Battery : A battery containing nickel and cadmium plates and an alkaline electrolyte.

  • Nominal Voltage : A reference voltage used to describe batteries, modules, or systems (i.e., a 12-volt or 24-volt battery, module, or system).

  • Normal Operating Cell Temperature (NOCT) : The estimated temperature of a photovoltaic module when operating under 800 w/m2 irradiance, 20?C ambient temperature and wind speed of 1 meter per second. NOCT is used to estimate the nominal operating temperature of a module in its working environment.

  • N-Type : Negative semiconductor material in which there are more electrons than holes; current is carried through it by the flow of electrons.

  • N-Type Semiconductor : A semiconductor produced by doping an intrinsic semiconductor with an electron-donor impurity (e.g., phosphorus in silicon).
