Raster, CMSAF and solaR

June 17, 2011 | Oscar Perpiñán Lamigueiro

The Satellite Application Facility on Climate Monitoring (CMSAF) generates, archives and distributes widely recognised high-quality satellite-derived products and services relevant for climate monitoring in operational mode. The data is freely accesible here after a registration process. I have ask them for several files with monthly averages of global solar radiation ... [Read more...]

Sustainable Futures conference in Manchester

May 2, 2011 | Oscar Perpiñán Lamigueiro

Recently, Kevin Ummel gave a short conference about his PhD research at the Sustainable futures – Tyndall Centre researchers’ international conference. His work, named “Optimizing worldwide deployment of wind and solar power technologies via a high resolution, linear programming model”, is built with R. He is using the solaR package for ...

Here comes the sun

May 1, 2011 | Oscar Perpiñán Lamigueiro

The solar irradiance incident outside the earth’s atmosphere is called the extraterrestial or extra-atmospheric irradiance. It is derived from the solar constant only with geometric equations. It can be easily calculated with the calcSol function of the solaR package. With this post I will show an example with some ... [Read more...]

Maps of solar radiation

April 2, 2011 | Oscar Perpiñán Lamigueiro

The Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) at NASA Langley Research Center offers several data sources. For example, it is possible to download a text file with the 22-year (July 1983 – June 2005) monthly and annual average of global horizontal irradiation. nasafile [Read more...]

merge with solaR

March 29, 2011 | Oscar Perpiñán Lamigueiro

The version 0.22 of solaR includes a new method, mergesolaR. It is designed to merge daily time series of several solaR objects. For example, we can obtain the daily irradiation of the whole set of meteorological stations of Madrid (Spain) and use this information to calculate the productivity of a grid ... [Read more...]

solaR 0.22 is at CRAN

March 26, 2011 | Oscar Perpiñán Lamigueiro

The version 0.22 of solaR is now available at CRAN. Besides, solaR is now registered at R-Forge. A new mergesolaR method has been defined for merging solaR objects. The calculation of the sunset time has been improved. The voltage dependency of the efficiency curve of the inverter is now included in ... [Read more...]
