Operational or field instruments arc calibrated against secondary standards and are the source of most of the data on which solar process engineering designs must be based.

It pyrehliometer normally connecte [ Measurements of diffuse radiation can be made with pyranometers by shading the instrument from beam radiation.

Robinson and Coulson provide detailed discussion and bibliography on this topic. Pynmomelers are usually calibrated against standard pyrheliometers, A standard method has been set forth in the Annals pyrueliometer the International Geophysical Year IGY. They are less precise pyrhelliometer than the thermopile instruments and have some limitations on their use.

Radiation data usually must be integrated over some period of time, such as an hour or a day.

Pyrhelioneter, Loyal Blaine, These factors are discussed in more detail by Coulson If the spectral distribution of incident radiation was fixed, a calibration could be established that would remain constant; however, there are some variations in spectral disl with clouds and atmospheric water vapor.

Other pyrheliometers were designed by Molt-Gorczynski, Yaaish- evskiy, and Michclson. When there is no difference in temperature, the electrical energy to the shaded strip must equal the solar radiation absorbed by the exposed strip.

The preceding discussion dealt entirely with measurements of total radiation on a horizontal surface.

Data from these instruments are generally not as accurate as that from thermopile-type pyranometers. Standard and secondary standard solar radiation instruments are pyrheliometers.


Two of these secondary standard instruments are of importance. The Ll-COR instrument is fitted with an acrylic diffuser that substantially removes the dependence of response on the angle of pyrheoiometer of the radiation.

However, formatting rules can vary widely between applications and fields of interest or study.

Their response to changing radiation levels is essentially instantaneous and is linear with radiation.

The response of this Eppley was dependent on ambient temperature, with sensitivity decreasing by fl. You already recently rated this item.

The design was modified by Abbot in to include the use of two thermally identical chambers, dividing the cooling water between them and beating one chamber electrically while the other is heated by solar radiation; when the instrument is adjusted so as to make the heat produced in the two chambers identical, the electrical power input is a measure of the solar energy absorbed.

The detector is at the end of the collimating tube, which contains several diaphragms and is blackened on the inside.

The detectors for these instruments must have a response independent of wavelength of radiation over the solar energy spectrum. Data on the total energy received by a body, as represented by the sphere, are of interest in some biological processes.

The other secondary standard of particular importance is the AngslrSm compensation pyrheliometer, first constructed by K. Much of the available radiation data prior to is probably not this good, largely because of infrequent calibration and in some instances because of inadequate integration procedures.
