Simulator for Klucher Model

Project description

Klucher Model Simulator

This is a simulation package for klucher model built on Python to calculate solar radiations on a tilted surface at a particular place for a whole year.


Run the following to install :

pip install XlsxWriter
pip install KlucherModelSDas


from KlucherModelSDas import klucher

Generate Data for Any Year:

klucher(year, latitude_of_the_place, tilt_angle, azimuth_angle, interval_of_time_in_minutes)`

Customizing Klucher Model

To install Klucher Model Simulator, along with the tools you need to develop and run tests, run the following in your virtualenv:

$pip install -e .[dev]


Generating Data for 2020, Latitude: 25.58, Tilt Angle: 10 deg, Azimuth Angle: -51 deg and Interval of 15 minutes

from KlucherModelSDas import klucher

klucher(2020, 28.58, 10, -51, 15)

This creates an excel sheet named 'data.xlsx':


n :day of the year
hra :hour angle
dec :declination angle
tilt :tilt angle
azi :azimuth angle
cosQ :angle of incidence of solar radiation
cosQz :zenith angle
F :correction coefficient

Ig :Hourly Global Radiation
Ib :Hourly Beam Radiation
Id :Hourly Diffused Radiation
It :Solar Radiation on Tilted Surface
