Radial Basis Function Network-based prediction of global solar radiation data: Application for sizing of a stand-alone photovoltaic system at Al-Madinah, Saudi Arabia

Publication year: 2010brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 1 July 2010brMohamed, Benghanem , Adel, MellitbrIn this paper, Radial Basis Function network (RBF) is used for modelling and predicting the daily global solar radiation data using other meteorological data such as air temperature, sunshine duration, and relative humidity. These data were recorded in the period 1998–2002 at Al-Madinah (Saudi Arabia) by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Four RBF-models have been developed for predicting the daily global solar radiation. It was found that the RBF-model which uses the sunshine duration and air temperature as input parameters, gives accurate results as the correlation coefficient in this case is 98.80%. A comparative study between developed RBF, Multilayer perceptron…
