     For optimize the use of the solar energy, a fundamental need is the knowledge of the solar irradiance at a given position. The present work treats the problem of prediction of the direct, diffuse and global solar flues at a given position, by using empirical models. We are interested in this study of the Tetuan city Northern of Morocco (35.57361 latitude, -5.37528 longitude). We chose to use and study three empirical models among the existing ones in the literature. The results obtained by these models have generally a good concordance with the data acquired by our meteorological station.
