Abstract: 
The simulation of noon electron density values of the F2 ionospheric peak are performed on the basis of Kharkiv incoherent scatter radar data. It is shown that the third order polynomial is required for adequate description of dependency daytime values of electron density of the ionospheric peak F-region(Nm). Much attention is given to the estimation of the reliability of results of calculations. Coefficients of the regression for all seasons are calculated. The features of the seasonal variations of Nmin the solar cycle different phases are determined. It is shown that tidal and planetary waves can be the main reason of the variations.
Keywords: electron density, radar, solar cycle different phases
