Estimation of Solar Radiation in Brunei Darussalam

A.Q. Malik, Roslan Hj. Abdullah


Solar irradiance data obtained from the Meteorological Services of Civil Aviation of Brunei Darussalam during parts or most of the periods from January 1987 through December 1992 have been analyzed and utilized using the empirical model developed by Angstrom [1-2] to predict the availability of solar radiation at the four districts of Brunei Darussalam which are Brunei/Muara, Belait, Temburong and Tutong. It is noted that the theoretical model of Angstrom is suitable for estimating solar irradiance for any location in Brunei Darussalam.
