Solar Global Irradiation on a Clear Day

It is of interest to study the solar global irradiation on a clear day, which is a function of all the abovementioned parameters with the exception of degree of cloudiness, i. e., by definition there is a total absence of clouds. The analysis of the relative magnitudes of the measured solar global irradiation and the solar global irradiation on a clear day, as determined by a suitable model, provides a platform for studying the influence of cloudiness on solar global irradiation. Also, the magnitude of the solar global irradiation on clear day provides an estimate of the maximum solar energy available for conversion on a particular day.
