ENIsc PV 
absolute maximum total PV array short circuit current (d.c.) that the PCE is rated to have connected to its PV input, under worst-case conditions of ambient temperature, irradiance, etc.

NOTE This rating of the PCE refers to the absolute maximum current the PV input to the PCE is designed for under conditions of expected use. This differs from the simple sum of the marked Isc ratings of the connected PV modules, since those markings are based on short-circuit conditions under standard test conditions, and may be exceeded in cold temperatures or with irradiance above the standard level.
