A Simple Model for Estimating the Diffuse Fraction of Solar Irradiance from Photovoltaic Array Power Output

Engerer, Nicholas; XU, Yi


Given the rapid proliferation of data recording equipment for distributed photovoltaic (PV) arrays globally, there exists a new opportunity to use the power output from these systems for the purpose of surface solar radiation assessment. Direct measurements of the beam and diffuse irradiance represent the best methods for producing such assessments, however the equipment required for these observations are expensive and require routine maintenance, which therefore mean that the measurements are...[Show more]
