Abstract

In this study, typical meteorological years (TMYs) of eight cities in three provinces of Northeast China are generated by the recorded weather data (dry-bulb temperature, relative humidity, wind velocity and global solar radiation) in the period of 1994-2009, using Finkelstein-Schafer (FS) statistical method. The cumulative distribution function (CDF) for each weather index and for each year is compared with the CDF for the long-term years. The TMY database are essential in the applications of solar energy systems. Moreover, such database can also be applied in many engineering applications such as meteorology and building simulations.
