Solar Power Forecast
MDA Weather services can produce hourly solar electric generation forecasts for any generation technology and any location world-wide. Our solar forecast system combines state-of-the-art radiative transfer modeling with a multi-model ensemble for cloud and humidity forecasting. For the short-term forecast (0-3 hours), we combine cloud tracking from geostationary satellite observations with statistical techniques that learn from the data on insolation and power variations at the forecast location.
Sample wind forecasts for a highly volatile period with variable cloudiness.
