Analysis of Solar Irradiation Distribution Types

The analysis of the frequency distribution and distribution type of a particular solar irradiation database are very important parameters in the design of solar irradia­tion conversion systems. The conversion system size and type (non-concentrating/ concentrating) are functions of the magnitude and distribution of the solar irradiation (global/beam). The ability to perform a meaningful economic feasibility analysis of such systems is contingent on the availability of such information.
