"Solar in a jar" for "dummys"
For MeteoHub. As simple as effective.
- As with any "solar in a jar" idea, place an
additional thermometer in a glass jar in a sunny place.
- Create in Meteohub a virtual sensor "sol0" give
it a name and trigger your "jar"-sensor (th2 in my case). In the
textbox "conversion" type: "sensdiffmaster 1 300". Presse the
Createa second virtual sensor also "sol0" with the same name as your first
virtual sensor. Trigger your normal outside thermometer (in my case
th0) In the textbox "conversion" type: "sensdiffslave 1 300" . Presse
the save button.
- The conversion calculates the difference between both thempretures
Adjust your solarsensor in "settings"
The values can be diffrent for your solarsensor. Just try differtent values.
Compare your W/qm data (on a sunny day!) with this solar calculator and adjust factor (a) if necessary.
Now you have a "real" solarsensor with all the variables of it in
"all-sensor.xml" witch you can use for output like this and more.
Success and have fun with it!
