Provides an appropriate standard spectral irradiance distribution to be used in determining relative performance of solar thermal, photovoltaic, and other system components and materials where the direct and hemispherical irradiance component is desired. The tables presented define an air mass 1,5 solar spectral irradiance for the direct normal radiation - 5,8° field-of-view angle - and hemispherical radiation on an equator-facing, 37° tilted plane for an albedo of 0,2. These tables are intended to represent ideal clear sky conditions.
