The solar irradiation reference is how much energy is produced per square meter in each time step.

This signal is the same as Solar Irradiation, except that it uses the calculated signal Solar Irradiance Reference instead of only the device’s irradiance data.

Technology

Solar

Equation

I=Iref ⋅ T

where

I is the solar irradiation reference

Iref is the solar irradiance reference

T is the device resolution in hours
