Abstract: Converting measured horizontal global solar irradiance in tilted ones is a difficult task, particularly for a small time-step and for not-averaged data. Conventional methods (statistical, correlation,…) are not always efficient with time-step less than one hour; thus, we chose to use an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) to realize this conversion applied to 5-min solar radiation data of Bouzareah, Algeria. The ANN is developed and optimized using two years of solar data; the nRMSE is around 8% for the optimal configuration, which corresponds to a very good accuracy for such a short time-step.
