Abstract: In this paper, using two databases of observed weather data for the major cities in China, we developed models with three variables to estimate hourly solar radiation on the horizontal surfaces for these cities. The errors in estimating solar radiation in different locations were discussed. Two methods to estimate monthly solar radiation were developed and compared. Models to estimate yearly solar radiation were also developed using latitude, elevation and average cloud cover.
