Simple correlation for estimating the global solar radiation on horizontal surfaces in India

Publication year: 2010brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 19 September 2010brA.K., Katiyar , Chanchal Kumar, PandeybrA long range five years (2001–2005) measured data of the global solar radiation on horizontal surface along with the bright sunshine hours of four prominent cities viz. Jodhpur, Calcutta, Bombay, and Pune of India have been analyzed. The under considered cities have varying weather conditions of the country. The regression constants have been calculated for the first, second and the third order Angstrom type correlations for each location using regression analysis method. Comparisons of monthly mean global solar radiation between the measured and the calculated values have been made. The statistical errors are also performed for testing the accuracy…
