In this paper, two methods for modelling solar irradiation are demonstrated, and verified by test results. The work is aimed at producing in-plane irradiation values that can serve as input for a photovoltaic (PV) module model. The aim is limited to grid-connected applications. The usefulness of the work lies in the fact that it can support making planning decisions without requiring detailed knowledge from the user, for example an installer of small-scale photovoltaic systems.
Of the two methods, one relies on replicating the stochastic properties of the underlying process and the other method is aimed at creating a daily average irradiation profile. When used with a polycrystalline PV module model, bothmethods show good test results and similar accuracy. It is therefore suggested to use the method using average values, since it is simpler compared to the other method. It is accurate enough to be applied in a software tool.
