4 Solar Trajectory Maximum elevation angle (height of the sun at solar noon): ϒ S Equinox 90 - latitude Summer solstice 90 - latitude + 23 Winter solstice 90 - latitude - 23 To find out solar position & intensity at your location: Solar Resources - Solar Radiation 2-3

5 Calculating the Sun s Position Source: Pveducation.org In northern hemisphere: = 90 φ + δ ζ = 900 α : elevation angle ζ: zenith angle φ: latitude δ: declination angle

6 Calculating the Sun s Position Local Standard Time Meridian (1) Where T GMT is difference between local time and Greenwich mean time in hours Equation of time (2) Where B = 360/365 (d-81) in degrees and d is number of days since the beginning of year Time correction factor Hour angle

11 Air Mass / Radiation intensity Effect of elevation angle on attenuation of irradiation Source: Earthscan, 2010 I d : direct irradiance (kw/m 2 ) kw/m 2 = solar constant 0.7 (% of radiation incident to atmosphere transmitted to earth) a = 0.14, h = height above sea level (km) is an empirical fit to observed data I G : global irradiance (kw/m 2 ) on a clear day where diffuse radiation is still 10% of direct radiation

12 Direct and diffuse radiation Direct radiation: 60% Diffuse radiation: 40%

13 Solar irradiation intensity Definitions: Irradiation (kwh/m 2 yr) Irradiance (W/m 2 ) Irradiance Sunshine hours (hrs) Peak sunshine hours (hrs)

30 Evacuated Tube Collectors Sydney tube with concentrator Feeder Outer glass tube Heat conducting plate Return Inner glass tube w. absorber coating Reflector Evacuated space Sydney double-walled glass tube

31 Vacuum tubes versus flat plate Advantages Higher operating temperatures than flat plate Reduced heat losses Higher yield per m 2 of collector than flat plate (attractive where space is an issue) Compact and sealed construction, high protection of absorber. Disadvantages High stagnation temperatures, causing more stress on pipework, insulation and solar fluid. Higher specific costs ( /m 2 of absorber area) Higher cost ( /kwh) for available solar yield at medium operating temperature range. Possible loss of vacuum
