Short summary
This paper investigates the combined relationship between the GPS TEC and DPS TEC, and validations of IRI TEC and NeQ TEC models. Our findings reveal the suitability of DPS TEC, IRI TEC, and NeQ TEC in place of GPS TEC. The DPS TEC predicts GPS TEC very well during the daytime when PEC contribution is often negligible; however, the dusk period requires a substantial correction. Thus, the changed TEC obtained could be used to improve models for the equatorial station in Africa.
