Abstract

Solar radiation is a primary driver for many physical, chemical and biological processes on the earth's surface, and also a driving force behind a number of solar energy applications such as photovoltaic systems for electricity generation, solar collectors for heating, solar air conditioning climate control in buildings and passive solar devices. Thus, the determination of solar radiation data is important. Many studies have been carried out in order to develop the method to estimate the solar radiation. In this paper, the Box- Jenkins method is applied to solar radiation data from Bangi, Malaysia. Nonseasonal autoregressive model of order 1, ARMA(1,0), is tentatively used to model the data. Ljung- Box statistic is used in diagnostic checking and it is shown that the model is adequate.
