- A single channel, laboratory grade Pyranometer, (broad frequency, high precision light intensity sensor whose output is calibrated to measure irradiance in watts/m2). When we multiply its output by the size of our array, we get an instantaneous view of
how much solar power we are capable of harvesting at any given moment.
This is very important, because in an off-grid situation, you may not be harvesting all of the available energy, e.g., when the batteries are full (floating), or when they are going through the absorbing stage of the charge cycle.
Labeled as “Solar Available Power” and visualized as grey behind the other feeds.
