3.3.1 Calculating Irradiance Based on Tilt Angle

Course subject(s) Module 3. Introduction to Location Issues

In the previous section you learned to define the position of the sun with respect to a horizontal surface on earth. However, in order to optimize the incident irradiance on your pv system, the pv modules should often be placed under a certain tilt angle. In this video you will learn how to calculate the irradiance as a function of the module tilt angle.
