SQUARE D – Brand from Schneider Electric CUTLER – HAMMER – Brand of CB STC - Standard Test Conditions SCADA Systems - Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems STC - Standard Test Conditions. PSF – Pounds per square foot (it is used related to the load of snow over any structure). OCPD – Overcurrent Protection Device.

SOLAR TERMS Pyranometer - A pyranometer is a type of actinometer used to measure broadband solar irradiance on a planar surface and is a sensor that is designed to measure the solar radiation flux density (in watts per meter square) from a field of view of 180 degrees. The name pyranometer stems from Greek, "pyr - πῦρ" meaning "fire" and "ano - ἄνω" meaning "above, sky". A typical pyranometer does not require any power to operate. Actinometer - Actinometers are instruments used to measure the heating power of radiation. They are used in meteorology to measure solar radiation as pyrheliometers. Pyrheliometer - A pyrheliometer is an instrument for direct measurement of solar irradiance.
