Abstract

The paper shows an alternative method for generating a Typical Reference Year of global solar radiation from data sets of climatic variables obtained by automatic meteorological stations in Valladolid (Spain). Data sets of climatic variables used were obtained between 1988 and 1998 in ten minute steps. Climatic variables used in this method are maximum, average and minimum daily temperature, maximum, average and minimum daily relative humidity and maximum and average wind speed. With this method solar radiation measured is only necessary in order to compare experimental data with data generated by the Typical Reference Year. The method proposed is a simplified version of the modified Festa-Ratto method and generates a Typical Reference Year correspondin
