SolarFor @ AEMO
SolarFor as implemented in the Australian Solar Energy Forecasting System (ASEFS) at Australian Energy Market Operator, with Overspeed as system integrator, was presented at EMS 2014 in Prague and compared to physical modelling with focus on forecast horizons 1-5 days and using inputs from GFS-HD and ECMWF. It is clear that the mixed physical and statistical modelling of SolarFor clearly outperforms physical modelling. Also, the benefit of SolarFor combined forecasting is evident; it outperforms the best of the individual forecasts (SolarFor running on ECMWF). Download presentation.
ASEFS builds on the success of the Australian Wind Energy Forecasting System (AWEFS) implemented at AEMO with Overspeed as system integrator. SolarFor is a central part of ASEFS in the same way as WPPT is a central part of AWEFS. See also page 4 on this link.
