Abstract : Accurate measurement of solar irradiance is necessary for the successful implementation of solar power systems, both photovoltaic and solar thermal. This paper presents the idea and design of a new photodiode-based pyranometer for the measurement of solar irradiance in the visible spectral range (approx. 400 to 750 nm).The principal characteristics of the proposed design are: accuracy, ease of connection, immunity to noise, remote programming and operation, interior temperature regulation, cosine error minimization and all this at a very low cost, tens of times lower than that of commercial thermopile-based devices. This new photodiode-based pyranometer overcomes traditional problems in this type of device and offers similar characteristics to those of thermopile-based pyranometers and, therefore, can be used in any installation where reliable measurement of solar irradiance is necessary, especially in those where cost is a deciding factor in the choice of a meter.
