The current flowing freely from a photovoltaic cell through an external circuit that has no load or resistance; the maximum current possible.
Abbreviated Isc, refers to a PV device's current output when short-circuited.
That current delivered when a cell is short-circuited (i.e., the positive and negative terminals are directly connected with a low-resistance conductor).
The maximum output current that a converter will source with its output shorted, expressed as a percentage of the rated current.
The initial value of the current obtained from a battery in a circuit of negligible resistance.
