[Archive] photoemission

Message by Konomi Okamoto:
I wonder whether photoemission is taking into account about the angle of a satellite surface and sunlight.
Does the amount of sun energy change if the satellite surface leans?
Can I handle this by setting the global parameter, the component of sun direction?
I hope some advise.

Message by Jean-Charles Mateo-Velez:
the photoemission is proportional to the co-sinus of incidence angle, which is controlled by the direction of Sun in global parameters SunX,Y,Z
whose norm |Sun| is the factor of amplification of the photoemission flux given in local parameters

Thank you for your reply.
I found a problem when I set the direction of Sun (0,1,1) in global parameter.
SPIS can show the 3D visual of model and Sun.I tried some paterns of sun direction. Only when I set (0,1,1), I got wrong 3D visual.
Is calculations is correct even if the 3D visual is wrong?
I use the latest SPIS version for windows7.

if there is a problem it only appears on the 3D view. Chck it with the post pro files (current emission)
