Abstract: Arrival-time predictions based on the numerical “WSA-ENLIL+Cone model” and the analytical “Drag-based model” (DBM) are analyzed, employing a sample of 50 well observed CMEs. The best match between the two models is obtained if the background solar-wind speed of w = 400 km s-1 is applied in DBM. It is also demonstrated that both models show similar prediction accuracy.
