By Ronald Stewart, Daniel W. Spencer, Richard Perez (auth.), Karl W. Böer, John A. Duffie (eds.)

A variety of major alterations have happened in Advances in solar power due to the fact that quantity 1 seemed in 1982. The delays in ebook of the second one quantity are the results of reorganization of the yank solar power Society, and the negotiation of a brand new publishing association. starting with this quantity, Advances is now released together by way of the Society and Plenum Press. The Editorial Board has been enlarged to be extra consultant of the several fields of solar power conversion. creation of Advances is being expedited by utilizing sleek observe processing gear and the 'lEX typesetting-editing application. now we have long gone to a single-column structure to ease the issues of featuring lengthy equations, and we think that the person of the quantity will locate it effortless to learn. using 'lEX will make final minute updates attainable. The exterior visual appeal of the amount fits that of quantity 1. we think that destiny volumes of this annual might be continuing on time table. We invite reviews from clients and correspondence from potential authors of severe reports. Karl W. Boer John A. Duffie CONTENTS bankruptcy 1 The size of sunlight Radiation Ronald Stewart, Daniel W.

1 Historical Perspectives-From Sundials to Satellites Some 6,000 years ago, the Chaldeans of Asia Minor constructed sundials, understood the eclipse cycles, and divided the day into hours. Today, the intensity of the sun's energy, not just its position, has become the focal point for data recording and analysis. The following chronological sequence of events is just one way of recognizing the many people and institutions which have provided the basis, the direction, and the spirit which has affected our view of solar radiation today.
