The spectral distribution is needed to calculate the performance of components whose behavior varies with wavelength. Examples are the efficiency of photovoltaic cells and the absorptance of selective coatings. , large 02) the relation between m and 92 is more complicated. However the total energy incident at such large angles is so small that Eq. 1) is sufficiently accurate for practical applications. 2 This figure is based on an older value of the solar constant, but the effect on the spectral shape is negligible.
