Need help with vector mathematics for solar sensor
I'm glad I found this Forum. I'm an engineer, rusty with my math, building a practical prototype sensor that will characterize energy from 8 directions at shallow angle, upon
a solar array.
I need help with expression showing the summation of each of the 9 sensors (with the
funnel(with the reference sensor) point straight up, and the other 8 sensor values in terms of directional vector and forming cross product with the vector that represent the Normal to the solar array plane. The array is specified with an azimuth and a tilt (towards South for
north hemisphere locations).
