Example text

Using these principles, along with certain simplifications in physical and mathematical description of the phenomena, the whole concept of the greenhouse effect may be expressed in a relatively simple way [9]. , equal to the solar constant), then the energy reaching the Earth can be expressed in a simplified way as: Fc ¼ pR2 ð1 À r0 ÞGo If the absorptivity (and therefore also emissivity) of the Earth for solar radiation was equal to one, then the entire energy reaching the planet’s surface would be absorbed and then radiated back.

Its position has to be adjusted at regular intervals in order to compensate seasonal changes of the Sun’s declination. Another type of instrument is a spectral pyranometer. It is used for measuring the spectral distribution of total solar radiation (beam and diffuse together). There is also solarimeter, which is a special kind of a pyranometer based on a set of the Moll-Gorczynski thermocouple system. Pyrheliometers are radiometers using a collimator to measure beam irradiation of a surface perpendicular to the solar beam direction.

17), the total radiation incident on the horizontal surface on Earth is practically only composed of diffuse radiation (99%). Application of specific models depends primarily on the type of available measurement data describing irradiation and required accuracy of performed analyses and calculations. , on a base of the hourly sums that have just passed to predict the following hourly sums on the same day). This is caused by rapid development of photovoltaics (PV) technology and integration of PV panels with a grid.
