Estimation of Solar Radiation for Nigeria and Cameroon

Data are presented for global solar radiation on a horizontal plane, H and of duration of sunshine, n, on a monthly basis and their regression coefficients, for various stations in Nigeria and the Republic of Cameroon. It is concluded that the individual station regression equations would be reasonably accurate for most applications particularly when the raw data are not available. Overall regression equations, while giving general average values do not accurately predict the insolation in a particular area.
