Abstract

This paper describes the design and fabrication of a microprocessor controlled auto sun-tracking 10-channel solar radiometer system which is used in measuring the solar spectral irradiance received at the Earth's surface. The instrument measurements are employed in determining the atmospheric optical depths at 10 discrete wavelengths through visible and near IR regions. me automated solar radiometer is capable of tracking the sun, and measuring and recording the output of 10 channels through the course of a day. Some peformance and experimental results of the instrument are also presented in this paper.
