Bifacial PV test-bed irradiance measurements

Data for 2 front-facing and 4 rear-facing IMT irradiance sensors placed on a scaled-down setup that replicate a PV array in a highly-reflective rooftop. The test-bed consist of 3 rows of 20x2ft aluminum sheets (the “panels”), supported by a Unistrut structure, with 6 irradiance sensors (IMT) measuring front and rear irradiance in the center module of the center row. High quality weather-station data available
