Abstract

This report describes the simulation of the observations of the KISS, a two-element radio interferometer built in Groningen. The KISS observes the size of the Sun from the interferometric visibility. As the observations depend on all structure pieces of the target source and the Sun’s appearance is variable, it is proposed to use a number of models to simulate the possible observations. Using the models, the size of the Sun can be deduced from the observations. It is argued that smaller structures on the Sun’s surface require a more advanced observational setup.
