    A pyranometer is used to measure the irradiance of the sun [].It can be installed on a surface to measure the global irradiance received from the hemisphere, as shown in Figure 1 [4,5,6].It is used to measure global (diffuse and beam) irradiance on a horizontal plane [3,6].However, pyranometers have several disadvantages: (1) the price can be between $ (with low accuracy) and $ (with 1. Introduction. This paper presents the design, construction and testing of a new pyranometer for measuring global solar irradiance (W/m 2) or global solar radiation flux density within the visible spectral range (approx. to nm).Although the sensing element is a silicon photodiode, the developed pyranometer presents some characteristics and features similar to those of pyranometers

      Eppley - pyranometer and Sol-A-Meter used in this study. To compare the results of albedo measurements from the two instruments and to study the influence of the spectral response of silicon cells on albedo, some physical properties must first be checked. These are: a) linear response b) temperature effect c) cosine effect;sequence=1. This test method represents the only practical means for calibration of a reference pyranometer. While the sun-trackers, the shading disk, the number of instantaneous readings, and the electronic display equipment used will vary from laboratory to laboratory, the method provides for the minimum acceptable conditions, procedures and techniques ://

Global radiation is the sum total of direct solar radiation and diffuse sky radiation received by a horizontal surface per unit area. Diffuse solar radiation is measured using a pyranometer that is equipped with a narrow Introduction A pyranometer is a typeof “actinometer” used to measure broadband solar “irradianceon” a planar surface and is a sensor that is designed to measure the solar radiation flux density (W/m2) from a field of view of degrees.

Therefore, there is a need to identify how the data collected from both sensors relates.

Until microchips and compact electronic equipment became popular in the s, a manual optical pyrometer was what you used if you wanted to measure the temperature of something extremely hot and relatively inaccessible, such as the inside of a steel furnace or a pottery kiln.

It measured the temperature, at a safe distance, by comparing the radiation the hot object A pyranometer measures the sun's irradiance (power/area, basically "brightness") on a surface. Despite the similar names, it is completely different from a pyrometer, so stop right here if that is what you are looking for.
