Solar Radiation


Hi everybody,

Anybody knows how can I simulate the solar radiation without using the flow Simulation? Can I just draw a big ball as 'the sun' and represent 'the sun' with a heat flux of 1120W/M2?? I need to evaluate will the solar radiation affect my sealed enclosure in term of thermal.

Thanks a lot.
