There’s a commonly used metric in solar power plant studies called variously Peak Solar Hours, or Peak Sun Hours. Essentially it’s how many watt-hours per day a one-watt solar panel will produce, so it’s an integration of Watts Per Square Meter over the day. It is typically measured with a pyrometer, which can cost as much as a complete Weatherflow station.
Is there a way to get a rough approximation of this metric from my WeatherFlow station? Either (ideally) from stored cloud data, or I could log UDP broadcast data and derive some kind of curve fit from my pyrometer and solar plant, unless there’s an easier way?
There have been a couple of discussions of “Hours Of Sunshine” in Developers and/or Feature Requests, but this is for the solar-power-specific metric above.
Many thanks in advance for any thoughts!
