It has been already revealed that the daily Solar Irradiance Data during the time period from October, 1984 to October, 2003 obtained by Earth Radiation Budget Satellite (ERBS) exhibits an Anti-persistent trend having multi-periodic phenomena. The solar irradiance time series data being a complex non linear signal in this paper we have tried to detect the irregularity and multifractality in the signal using continuous wavelet transform modulus maxima(WTMM) algorithm. Singularity spectrum of the signal has been obtained to measure the degree of multifractality of the Solar Irradiance signal.
