Abstract
Many distributions have been proposed to model the probability density function of irradiance fluctuations. The most widespread models nowadays are the Lognormal (LN) and Gamma–Gamma (GG) distributions. Albeit these models comply with the actual PDF data most of the time, neither of them works in all scenarios and, depending on the conditions, one of the two have to be chosen. In this paper, a new model is presented resulting in the exponentiated Weibull (EW) distribution, along with a physica...
