Introduction. This paper presents the design, construction and testing of a new pyranometer for measuring global solar irradiance (W/m 2) or global solar radiation flux density within the visible spectral range (approx.

To compare the results of albedo measurements from the two instruments and to study the influence of the spectral response of silicon cells on albedo, some physical properties must first be checked. These are: a) linear response b) temperature effect c) cosine effect;sequence=1. This test method represents the only practical means for calibration of a reference pyranometer.
