Solar Radiation Measurements

greenTEG’s gSKIN® Heat Flux Sensor enables fast and highly precise solar radiation measurements (i.e. ultraviolet and visible radiation). Precise data on solar radiation is indispensable for the optimization of photovoltaic installations, in meteorological research or in building automation systems.

Advantages of the gSKIN® Heat Flux Sensor for solar radiation measurements

The following features make the gSKIN® Heat Flux Sensor the ideal tool for solar radiation measurements:

  • Optimization of photovoltaic installations: The power output of a photovoltaic system depends on its alignment towards the sun at any given time. The ability to gather precise data quickly is therefore crucial to optimize the efficiency of photovoltaic installations. The gSKIN® Heat Flux Sensor enables you to collect data on solar radiation, which in turn serves as an important reference for predictions on the power output of PV systems, the monitoring of their efficiency, decisions on maintenance (cleaning) and many more.

  • Precise data in meteorological research: The sun has a profound influence on all meteorological processes. Therefore, precise data on global solar radiation (direct and scattered solar radiation) is the basis for research and predictions in meteorology.

  • Smart building automation systems: To increase the energy efficiency of buildings, smart automation systems gain increasing importance. These systems regulate processes according to many environmental parameters, the most important of which, is solar irradiation. The gSKIN® Heat Flux Sensor can, for example, be used to regulate sun blinds and heating automation in buildings in order to reduce its overall energy consumption.
