Example text

We therefore develop in this chapter the geometric relationships that determine the incidence angle. In many instances it will be convenient to have a terminology that distinguishes between radiative power and radiated energy. We shall designate instantaneous power [in W/m2] by the term "irradiance" and total radiated energy during a time interval such as 1 day by the term "irradiation" [in J/ m2]. We shall use the vague word "insolation" only when distinctions are not necessary. 495 X 10" m. The interior of the sun is extremely hot, with temperatures of many millions of degrees.

On the other hand, loosely packed rock beds are very good at preserving stratification. Rock beds for air systems and tanks with a mixture of oil and rocks are highly stratified. 5 STORAGE, BACKUP, AND THE ELECTRIC UTILITIES A fundamental problem of solar energy lies in the intermittency of solar radiation. Even in a perfectly cloudless climate the sun does not shine at night. 7 Since much of our energy demand does not coincide with the availability of solar radiation, some form of energy storage or backup is essential.
