Empirical model development and comparison with existing correlations

  • Rehman, Shafiqur
Registered author(s):

    This study utilized monthly mean daily values of global solar-radiation and sunshine duration at 41 locations in Saudi Arabia and developed an empirical correlation for the estimation of global solar radiation at locations where it is not measured. The paper also presents the comparison between the present correlation and other models developed under different geographical and varied meteorological conditions. The comparisons are made using standard statistical tests, namely mean bias error (MBE), root mean square error (RMSE), mean percentage error (MPE), and mean absolute bias error (MABE) tests. The errors are calculated using monthly mean daily measured and estimated values of global solar radiation at all 41 locations. The study found that the present correlation produced the best estimates of global solar radiation.
