Paper Abstract

Hourly solar radiation (insolation) data bases have been prepared for use in the computer simulation of solar energy systems. These data collections have been based on actual insolation observations or closely related weather observations. The inadequacies of the presently available insolation data have required that portions of the data be estimated by the use of the statistical procedures discussed in detail in the paper.
