Abstract: In urban locations, it is generally hard to find enough spaces for solar power plants. However, micro-energy generation systems like solar trackers can be located even in crowded cities and becoming a significant technology in solar energy systems. In this study, the measured global solar radiation data for the research area, Tinaztepe/Izmir (38°22'15.3"N 27°12'28.5"E), were logged, then analysed using statistical methods and seasonal daily global solar radiation mathematical models of Tinaztepe/Izmir were developed. The results of these mathematical models give more precise daily average solar radiation value for Tinaztepe/Izmir than previous Izmir global solar radiation models.
