B_R_Khan is on a distinguished road

I am using solar load model in openfoam, with simpleSolarCar as my base case. I have used only solar load model and not applied any other radiation model like view factor or fvDOM with it. I want to know which model OpenFOAM has implemented in solar Load. Is it solar ray tracing? and if we apply solar load along with fvDOM, does it implement solar discrete ordinate model?

Please guide.
