SHC Task 17

Measuring and Modeling Spectral Radiation

Radiation data are needed for solar resource assessment, design and evaluation of solar systems and buildings, and solar collector testing. As the performance of certain types of solar systems, building components and solar collectors depends on the spectral distribution in the ultraviolet, visible and infrared spectral range of the incoming solar radiation and on longwave thermal radiation exchange as well, a need was identified for improving the quantity and quality of spectral radiation data, both broad-band and narrow-band.
