Benchmarking is the largest activity within the MESoR project. The aim of the benchmarking exercise is to establish a coherent set of benchmarking rules and reference data sets to enable a transparent and comparable evaluation of the different solar radiation data sources. The rules are developed in conjunction with the IEA Task 36 on “Solar […]

Analysed databases and integrated systems

Each of the databases analysed here is integrated within a system (software setup) that provides additional tools for search, query, maps display, and calculation of derived parameters. PVGIS (the European section), includes solar radiation database developed by combination of solar radiation model and interpolated ground observations. The datasets Satel-Light and HelioClim-2 (accessible through the SoDa […]

Own measured data

A multicomponent solar thermal system was installed in Bishkek to preheat water for a district heating net in the context of a joint research project of Kassel University (Germany) and Kyrgyz State Technical University in Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan). For detailed investigations different parameters including solar radiation are measured since autumn 2004 with very accurate sensors every […]

Frank Bason SolData Instruments, Linabakken 13, DK-8600 Silkeborg, DenmarkCorresponding Author, soldata@soldata. dk Abstract The data collection phase of the Danish Galathea III Expedition was conducted from August 2006 until April 2007 [1]. During this period the research vessel Vmdderen undertook a round the world voyage of nearly 100.000 kilometers while acting as a platform for […]

Data base and compare

1.1. Information of stations The global solar radiation and sunshine duration data during the period from 1994 to 2003 reported in this paper were provided by the China Meteorological Administration (CMA). Professor Tien Shengyuan has divided climatic zone of China into eight large-scale climatic zones, and he also has advanced the representative city for every […]

Study Area

The region of the study is the area of Andalusia, in the southern part of Iberian Peninsula (Figure 1), covering around 87.000 km2. The region is located in the transition zone from middle latitudes to subtropical climates (latitudes 35° 30′ to 38° 30′ N and longitudes 7° 30′ to 1° 30 W), with the Atlantic […]
