Modeling shortwave solar radiation using the JGrass-NewAge system

  title={Modeling shortwave solar radiation using the JGrass-NewAge system},
  author={Giuseppe Formetta and R. Rigon and Jos{\'e} L. Ch{\'a}vez and O. David},
This paper presents two new modeling components based on the object modeling system v3 (OMS3) for the calculation of the shortwave incident radiation ( Rsw ↓) on complex topography settings, and the implementation of several ancillary tools. The first component, NewAGE-SwRB, accounts for elevation slope, aspect, shadow of the sites, and uses suitable parameterization for obtaining the cloudless irradiance. A second component, NewAGE-DEC-MOD’s is implemented to estimate the irradiance reduction… CONTINUE READING
