4) are for surfaces that rotate on axes that are parallel to the surfaces. 1 Extraterrestrial solar radiation for φ = 45◦ on a stationary collector at β = 45◦ on north-south (N-S) and east-west (E-W) single-axis tracking collectors. The three dotted curves are for the winter solstice and the three solid curves are for the summer solstice. 7 Angles for Tracking Surfaces 21 solstices. It is clear that tracking can significantly change the time distribution of incident beam radiation. Tracking does not always result in increased beam radiation; compare the winter solstice radiation on the north-south tracking surface with the radiation on the fixed surface.

6 ◦ There are points corresponding to B and C but to the east of A; these will have the same object azimuth angles except with negative signs. The shading profile determined by these coordinates is independent of latitude. It is shown by the solid line on the plot for φ = 45◦ . Note that at object azimuth angles of 90◦ , the object distance becomes infinity and the object altitude angle becomes 0◦ . The sun is obscured by the wall only during times shown in the diagram. The wall does not cast a shadow on point S at any time of day from late March to mid-September.

45. To find cos θ , enter at a latitude of φ − β = 10◦ for the same date. 73. 2. 3 Calculate Rb for a latitude 40◦ N at a tilt of 50◦ toward the south for the hour 9 to 10 solar time on February 16. 45. To find cos θ , enter at an abscissa of +10◦ , using the curve for February 16 for south latitudes. 80. 78. 2, to construct plots showing the effects of collector tilt on Rb for various times of the year and day. 3 Ratio Rb for a surface with slope 50◦ to south at latitude 40◦ for various hours from solar noon.
