Nowadays, the use of solar radiation is very important for some applications. Knowledge of global solar radiation distribution is needed for the design of solar energy systems of these applications. Many parameters affect the production of the solar energy and conversion efficiencies and location conditions of PV panels. One of the most vital parameters is the number of solar radiation values. The main objective of this study is to determine the predicting solar radiation by using meteorological measurements. In this study, two empirical models (linear and second-order polynomial equation) are analyzed according to correlation coefficients for a month. For the global solar radiation on horizontal surface in Osmaniye and a new quadratic model has been developed for Osmaniye.
