Homework Help: How to face a data processig to apply swinging door algorithm to a irradiance time

    How to face a data processig to apply "swinging door algorithm" to a irradiance time

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I would like to obtain the relevant (irradiance change, time increment) pairs from a irradiance time serie that I have in Excel and Origin. One way to do that is making "swinging door" algortithm. I can do it by a slowly way and I would like to know if is there a easier one to do that

    2. Relevant equations

    The "swinging door" algorithm is described by Bristol, 1990

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have started drawing the necessary lines on my data set, but I wonder if I can use some software to do that faster. Or if is there some other way to get these (irradiance change, time increment) pairs. Have I to do a programme, in matlab for example? (I don´t know a lot about matlab)
