Abstract

Measurements of metrological data of maximum, minimum ambient temperature, humidity and sunshine duration for a period of 23 years during the period of 1977-2000, at Tikrit (34. 35°N, 43.37°E), TuzKurmato (34.88°N, 44.64°E), and Kirkuk (35.30°N, 44. 21°E) were used to establish an Angstrom type correlation equations for direct global solar radiation. The diffuse radiation was estimated by using Klien and Page Models. This calculation appears to be sufficient to discriminate each station from the others due to it’s local characteristic of the sites. The overall results shown for TuzKurmato, the received radiation on the plane surface is higher than Tikrit and Kirkuk while the diffuse radiation reversely behaved as for Tiktit is the highest. The developed model can be used for estimating global solar radiation on horizontal surfaces. The monthly average total solar radiation was estimated. The value of correlation coefficient (r) and value of Root Mean Square Error (RMSE), Mean Bias Error (MBE) and Mean Percentage Error (MPE) were determined for each equation

Abstract

In this study a simple correlation is developed to predict monthly average daily global solar radiation on a horizontal surfaces for different Iraqi locations. For fiveyears interval (1981-1985), monthly average daily global solar radiation and sunshine duration data were measured on horizontal surfaces at some Iraqi cities (Kirkuk,Baghdad, Nasiriyah). A mathematical linear correlation represented by (Angstrom correlation) was applied to estimate the global radiation from hours of sunshine duration for these cities at the specified day of each month as shown in tables (2a, b, c). The model was compared with three different mathematical correlations models (quadratic, logarithmic, and exponential) to get the best fit among them. The obtained models have a high value of regression coefficient and give best fit through the measured values. In this study, the monthly average daily diffuse and beam radiations on horizontal surface were estimated from the measured global radiation. The overallresults show that, Baghdad city received higher radiation on the horizontal surface than Kirkuk and Nasiriyah.
