It is thought to be applicable for climates characterized by frequently occurring cloud covers (high share of diffuse radiation in global radiation), yielding relatively high convergence with measured data. 3 Anisotropic Radiation Model It is thought [1,34] that application of the isotropic diffuse radiation model in case of a clear sky leads to an underestimation of the hemispheric radiation incident on an arbitrary tilted surface, and the obtained radiation information is not full. In addition, the isotropic model does not take cloudiness level into account.

L l l Isotropic diffuse (scattered by atmosphere) radiation arrives from all the directions of the hemisphere at a uniform rate. It means that solar diffuse irradiance does not depend on the direction it comes from. Circumsolar diffuse radiation is a result from scattering solar radiation in the atmosphere (forward scattered) close to the beam radiation direction. It is assumed that it is concentrated within a theoretical cone with the vortex at the Earth’s surface under consideration, whose height runs along the direction of the beam direction propagation.

13). During a sunrise and sunset, the Sun’s zenith angle qz for incident beam radiation is a right angle (90 , which means that the solar 28 Solar Energy in Buildings altitude angle is 0 and the Sun is on a horizon line). At the zenith angle of 90 , the expression on the left side of the equation is equal to zero. The considered equation may be transformed into a form that will allow determining the hour angle of the sunrise urise or one for the sunset uset. 14) It may be noted that the hour angle urise or uset for certain (fixed) locations described by certain latitude 4 varies as a function of declination, which means changes at the following days of a year.
