How can caculate UV index from WRF-solar ?

Hi everyone.

I'm newbie, I have a question .
How can caculate UV index from WRF-solar ?

Thanks ./
I am not aware that UV index is an output variable of WRF Solar. Hope someone in the community may provide more information.

Take the output from the UV-E radiometer according to ISO 17166:1999/CIE S007/E-1998. Transform the output voltage to W/m² with the instrument’s sensitivity, for example 0.4 Volt, which corresponds to an erythemal radiation value of 0.0675 W/m². Multiply it with the factor of 40 m²/W to get the UVI value, in this case 2.7.
