This study aimed to compare global solar radiation on the horizontal area between two models of Chabane Foued and M.Capderou. The model of Chabane has been interested in pollution factors such as TL (turbidity), BE (Angstraon), and the chemical components of the air such as WV, O3, CH4, CO, CO2, and the especial part the new pollution factor such as hbeam, kbeam, and kdiffuse, which all influenced onto solar radiation, and the model of Capderou has been used the atmospheric disturbance to calculate the direct and diffuse components of radiation received on a plane, while the constituents of the atmosphere (absorption and diffusion) can be expressed by disturbance factors, which is very necessary to determine irradiation In the clear sky. The results reveal a significant difference between the two models with approximated curves. The difference between the models probably returns to the nature of the geographic site which the authors used and injected into the models.
