Default solar radiation modelling
Posts: n/a
hi guys! i need your help now, am stuck modelling solar radiation through a glass for my thermal energy storage project, i just cant get the right amount of W/m2 on the surface. and i dont understand how do deal with entities like grid orientation, sun direction vector. how do i get it to give me 1000 W/m2 and how do i make sure my model is facing the sun correctly?
