Cálculo de la Producción Neta de Energía Disponible considerando la Hora Solar Pico (H.S.P)

Para el cálculo de la capacidad del campo de captación fotovoltaico se utilizaron las H.S.P, está es una unidad que mide la irradiación solar y se define como el tiempo en horas de una hipotética irradiación solar constante de 1,000 W/m2. Una hora solar pico equivale a 3.6 MJ/m2 o, lo que es lo mismo, 1 kWh/m2.

Es una manera muy simple de contar la energía que se recibe del sol considerando paquetes de 1 hora cada uno de 1,000 vatios.

Is there a technical term for "paquetes de 1 hora" 1-hour packages each one made up of 1,000 watts

Explanation:
The preceding paragraph in your ST actually refers to these as "units":

"[...], está es una unidad que mide la irradiación solar y se define como el tiempo en horas de una hipotética irradiación solar constante de 1,000 W/m2"

So to make it clearer, I would be inclined to use "units" again for "paquetes", but if you really want to use a different term, you could say "blocks" maybe, but "units" is the standard term used.

See here, for example:

"A peak sun-hour is roughly the amount of solar energy striking a 1-square-meter area perpendicular to the sun’s location over a 1-hour period straddling solar noon in the summertime. So we can compare apples to apples, the amount of power is standardized at 1,000 watts (1 kilowatt) hitting that 1-square meter surface. By adding up the various amounts of solar irradiation over the course of a day, and counting them as units equivalent to 1 solar-noon midsummer hour (1,000 watts per square meter for 1 hour), we get a useful comparison number—the peak sun-hour."

By the way, I would translate "1 hora cada uno" as "per hour"

Hope this helps.

agree  neilmac: There you go. "Units". Who'da thunk it :-)

  -> Reckon it was just the author using a synonym to not repeat "units" myself, but from what I've read, best to actually repeat it in English. Cheers Neil!
