A DC-DC charge pump converter and a regulator provide the necessary voltage for the op amps from a 12V power adapter. First we used an analog digital signal acquisition card National Instruments PCI Ewhich was connected, through amplifiers, to the temperature sensors installed by Viessmann. Emerainville – France T: One advantage of TINI is that it allows direct use of a range of 1-wire sensors and devices, another interesting line of products created by the same team of engineers at Dallas.

CRC Press, pp. The three Eppley PSP pyranometers we tested gave very similar results. Irradiance measurement using the pyranometer: The passive cold junctions of the thermopile are in thermal contact with the pyranometer housing, which serves as a heat-sink. Currently only one measurement is taken per minute. Moll drew the attention of scientists to this thermopile. Another possibility is to compare several identical pyranometers.

It is not a comprehensive list of all compatible or incompatible products. The top half of the tank is heated by central heating, as with a conventional system. Despite their different ages attested by their serial numbers, we observed virtually no drift in their calibration. Since December 9,this system has been replaced by the new TINI microcontroller-based system described above. Our site was heavily inspired by the technical solutions and programs designed by Tim Bitson.


The pyranometer at the back was lacking its screen when we acquired it. Measurement of the output of the photovoltaic collector: In our installation, we tilted the pyranometer to put it parallel to the solar panels at The resulting increase of temperature is measured via thermocouples connected in series or series-parallel to make a thermopile.

However, it was not until a meteorological conference at Utrecht in that Dr. Moll of Utrecht University. Puranometer measured irradiance is greater than that which would be provided if the pyranometer was placed horizontally.

How the thermopile pyranometer works The thermoelectric detection principle is used, whereby incoming radiation is almost completely absorbed by a horizontal blackened surface, over a very wide wavelength range. For the last four years, data on the eausolaire. To ensure accurate measurements, the sensor should be leveled using an LIS leveling fixture, which incorporates a bubble level and three adjusting screws. Nearly all pyranometers use an optical quality glass for their hemispherical single or double domes.

The idea is to separate electrically the front end amplifier and the analogic converter from the TINI microcontroller using digital isolators.

The graphs are generated using the JPgraph PhP library. Measurements are taken every 10 seconds and at the end of each minute, the average of the 60 measurements is calculated and stored. Depending upon the glass, the transmission is from nm or less to about nm.

The temperature in the collector red dot rises in an uncontrolled way. Gorczynski of the Polish Meteorological Institute decided to construct a pyrheliometer and a pyranometer using modified Moll-Gorczynski thermopiles.

The Working Principle of a Thermopile Pyranometer

It is sensitive to a pyraonmeter range of wavelengths, from infrared to ultraviolet to nm. Temperature measurements in the thermal collector: The control and data acquisition of our solar energy system evolved over time.


This model is used in numerous meteorological stations around the world.

Two hemispheres of Schott glass transparent to a wide range of wavelengths protect the black surface of the thermopile elements and reduce the amount of heat transfer between the hot junction of the thermopile and the environment.

The following shows notable compatibility information. Campbell Scientific does not recommend using the LIR under vegetation or artificial lights because it is calibrated for the daylight spectrum to nm. Temperature measurements in the hot water tank: To fppley performance, recalibration is usually recommended every two years, and a high quality water-proof connector for the signal cable greatly simplifies the process.

Images LIR-L with cable. Pyranoeter LIR, manufactured by LI-COR, is a silicon pyranometer that accurately monitors sun plus sky radiation for solar, agricultural, meteorological, and hydrological applications. As it provides a direct measurement of the flux of solar energy reaching the solar thermal and photovoltaic, it is the most appropriate instrument to measure the performance of these sensors.

The amplifier, assembled according to the schematics described by Harrison and Knight is shown below.

These are chips that integrate a set of several digital isolators together with a dc-to-dc converter. Pyrano,eter devoted a team of talented engineers to TINI. The amplifier, shown epoley without its lid, includes a zero offset LTC operational amplifier followed by a LT operational amplifier. The data acquistion system has changed several times. It is necessary to protect the black detector coating against external influences which may affect the measurement; such as precipitation, dirt and wind.
