A flexible mathematical model is introduced which describes the radiance of the dome of the sky under various conditions. This three-component continuous distribution (TCCD) model is compounded by the superposition of three separate terms, isotropic, circumsolar and horizon-brightening factors, each representing the contribution of a Cited by: SOURCE: Abridged from Eddy (). The Solar Constant. The radiation intensity on the surface of the sun is approximately × 10 7 W/m radiation spreads out as the distance squared, by the time it travels to the earth ( × 10 11 m or 1 AU is the average earth-sun distance), the radiant energy falling on 1 m 2 of surface area is reduced to W as depicted in Figure

This book gives a comprehensive overview of activities currently under way to produce, collect and compile radiation data as needed for the various types of solar energy applications in Europe. Contributions have been made by all contractors of the Commission of the European Communities, in par ticular the Meteorological Offices of the EC.
Radiation enhancements (measured values exceed the estimated clear-sky values by more than 10%) were detected with a frequency of 5% for the measurement site, but there might be regions where the probability for cloud situations favoring enhanced radiation levels is higher, for example, regions dominated by convective clouds (Segal and Davis ).Cited by: Hoyt, D.

Circumsolar radiation. For the correct use of DNI measurements in CSP modeling, circumsolar radiation plays an important role. Due to forward scattering of direct sunlight in the atmosphere, the circumsolar region closely surrounding the solar disk looks very bright.
The radiation coming from this region is called circumsolar radiation. The global horizontal radiation, the most common measurement, consists of a direct component coming directly from the sun, and a diffuse component which is the sky radiation or that coming from other portions of the sky than the sun.
The figure shows a small portion of circumsolar diffuse radiation in the area directly around the direct radiation. Circumsolar radiation is caused by forward scattering of light through small angles by particles (aerosols) in the earth's atmosphere with dimensions on the order of or greater than the wavelength of light.
The aerosol particles may be composed of ice crystals or water droplets in thin clouds. The measurements show that the irradiance of the circumsolar sky radiation may reach an amount of more then 30 % of the direct solar irradiance at the observation site.
This means, optical systems combining the direct solar radiation and the circumsolar radiation may compensate — at least partly — the extinction losses of the direct solar Cited by: 1.
To effectively reduce the bias, this study proposes a physical solution of all-sky DNI that computes solar radiation in the infinite-narrow beam along the sun direction and the scattered radiation falls within the circumsolar ». Global solar radiation. The incident global solar radiation (I) received by Circumsolar sky radiation book surface, such as a window, is a combination of direct beam radiation (), sky radiation (), and radiation reflected from the ground in front of the surface ().
The following equation can be used to calculate incident global solar radiation: equation (1). The brightness of a band of sky 10 degrees wide, concentric with the sun, has been determined.

Available Solar Radiation and How It Is Measured Based on the experimental studies involving various pyrheliometer design, the contribution of the circumsolar sky to the beam is relatively negligible on a sunny day with clear skies.
However, a hazy sky or a uniform thin cloud cover redistributes the radiation so that contribution of the.

Circumsolar Radiation — The amount of solar radiation coming from a circle in the sky centered on the sun's disk and having a radius of between and degrees, depending on the type of instrument being used to measure beam radiation (direct normal irradiance).
Four instrument systems called Circumsolar Telescopes are used to measure the solar and circumsolar radiation for application to solar energy systems that employ lenses or mirrors to concentrate the incident sunlight.

Solar irradiance is the power per unit area (watt per square metre, W/m 2), received from the Sun in the form of electromagnetic radiation as reported in the wavelength range of the measuring instrument. Solar irradiance is often integrated over a given time period in order to report the radiant energy emitted into the surrounding environment (joule per square metre, J/m 2), during that time.[direct] solar radiation up to the scattering point.” In fact, trebling aerosol content in their model further reddens the circumsolar sky and makes the zenith bluer still.

The circumsolar ratio, the energy contained in the solar aureole compared to total energy, can impact the performance of these concentrating by:
