SOLAR OPTICS. This simulator framework can calculate the position of the sun for any day of the year, and time of day, at any latitude. Furthermore, the simulator can calculate various shadowing effects applicable to objects such as heliostats (sun tracking mirrors). Averages of shadowing effects over time can be used to optimize placement, size etc. of these objects to maximize utilization of insolation.
OPTICAL SENSOR NON-LINEARITY. We have created multiple techniques of detecting and removing non-linearity of optical sensors. In one technique, non-linearity of a CCD or CMOS sensor can be measured and corrected using just two photographs of a same scene, at two different exposure levels.
ELECTROMAGNETIC FEM. Built our own FEM EM solver to cross-check Mie scattering calculations, and to be able to perform scattering calculations for irregular shaped objects.
