  This paper presents the comparison of methods for generating typical meteorological year (TMY) data set using a 10-year period of meteorological data from four stations in a tropical environment of Thailand. These methods are the Sadia National Laboratory method, the Danish method and the Festa and Ratto method. In investigating their performance, these methods were employed to generate TMYs for each station. For all parameters of the TMYs and the stations, statistical test indicates that there is no significant difference between the 10-year average values of these parameters and the corresponding average values from TMY generated from each method. The TMY obtained from each method was also used as input data to simulate two solar water heating systems and two photovoltaic systems with different sizes at the four stations by using the TRNSYS simulation program. Solar fractions and electrical output calculated using TMYs are in good agreement with those computed employing the 10-year period hourly meteorological data. It is concluded that the performance of the three methods has no significant difference for all stations under this investigation. Due to its simplicity, the method of Sandia National Laboratories is recommended for the generation of TMY for this tropical environment. The TMYs developed in this work can be used for solar energy and energy conservation applications at the four locations in Thailand.

  The equilibrium moisture contents of litchi (Litchi Chinensis Sonn.) were experimentally determined using the dynamic method at temperatures of 30, 40, and 50°C over a range of relative humidity values of 12 to 95%. Five models were tested to fit the experimental isotherm data of litchi. The GAB model fitted the best to experimental isotherm data. The agreement between experimental and predicted values of this model is excellent (RMSE 1.8 to 3.4%). The isosteric heats of sorption water were also determined from the equilibrium data using the Clausius-Clapeyron equation and it was found to be a function of equilibrium moisture content.
