Remarks

・rd:Ratio of hourly to daily total diffuse radiation.If calculated rd is smaller than zero,hour(LST) may be before sunrise or after sunset on Hour(h)-rd Graph.
・LST:Local Srandard Time.
・h:Solar altitude.
・λ:Longitude.East(+),West(-).
・φ:Latitude.North(+),Siuth(-).
・δ:Declination of Sun.North(+),Siuth(-).
・ω:Hour angle.『the angular displacement of the sun relative to the local meridian, zero at noon』.Afternoon(+),Before noon(-).
・ωs:Solar Hour Angle at Sunset.
・LaTex: r_{d}=\frac{\pi }{24}\frac{(\frac{24}{\pi }\sin\frac{\pi }{24}\cos\omega-\cos\omega _{s}) }{\sin \omega _{s}-\omega _{s}\cos\omega _{s}}
