To predict and evaluate the effects of ionospheric modification quantitatively, the electron temperature and density perturbations are analyzed at different heating conditions, based on a developed model including momentum equation, continuity equation and energy equation. The results show that 1 powerful HF radio waves can cause the electron temperature to increase markedly, and the largest perturbation is near the reflection layer, but the electron density decreases at this area; 2 the lower neutral gas density in the ionosphere, the larger disturbance of the electron temperature and density; the higher radio frequency, the lower increment of electron temperature; and the higher radio power, the larger disturbance of electron temperature and density are caused, but there are no linear relationships between the radio power and disturbance amplitude; 3 the perturbations at nighttime are larger than at daytime when heated by HF radio waves with the same powers; the electron temperature perturbations in the solar minimum are larger than that in solar maximum; and the electron temperature perturbations in spring and autumn are larger than in winter and summer; 4 compared with the low-latitude, the mid-latitude has the smaller perturbations, the maximum electron temperature perturbation is 30% at daytime of winter, and the density is 5%.
