The data for this study are based on actual observations of global irradiation of the database provided by the National Institute of Meteorology-INMET during the period 2013 to 2015, by registered Meteorological Observation Automatic Station A101 located in the city of Manaus in Amazonas state. These data were used to determine the Clarity Index in order to classify the types of predominant sky in the Amazon municipality in the period studied, for planning purposes of photovoltaic power

The results come from the analysis were obtained through Matlab and Excel software that enabled the realization of the sky classification based on the results of the Clarity Index. .
