In the present paper, we describe how an empirical model, originally formulated by Sivkov to compute the monthly global irradiation, has been modified to make it fit some Algerian and Spanish sites. Appropriate parameters have been introduced. The monthly average daily values of global irradiation incident on a horizontal surface at some Algerian and Spanish meteorological stations are computed by this method using sunshine hours and minimum air-mass. The obtained values, for Algeria, are then… CONTINUE READING
