Meteorological and energy production forecasts for PV plants

Services > Renewable Energy > Photovoltaic

Solution

Meteorological prediction system to optimize the energy production of photovoltaic plants.

The service helps you:


  • Maximize & estimate energy production. Accurate and reliable GHI and weather forecasts to optimize energy production.
  • Minimize risks. Reduce existing risks in operation and maintenance (O & M) to safeguard plant components and extend service life of the plant.
  • Reduce deviation costs. Adaptation to daily, intraday and continuous market.
  • Minute by minute forecasts of meteorological variables.
  • Cost reduction. Reduce technical and financial risks related to weather conditions.

Products / Technology

 

Weather forecast system up to 40 minutes  with a sky-camera


Camera images (taken with a camera installed in the plant) are updated every minute in order to forecast:

  • cloud cover in the sky
  • cloud movement (speed and direction)
  • global horizontal irradiance (GHI) in the solar field

Forecasting time-horizon will depend on the speed and direction of the clouds as well as on the solar position (azimuth and elevation).1min-40 min and a distance up to 20 km from the plant.

Obtain an efficient operation of the plan in the short - run.

 

Weather forecast system  for the next 3 hours with satellite imagesite


Satellite images show:

  • cloud cover in the sky
  • cloud movement (speed and direction)
  • global horizontal irradiance (GHI) in the solar field

Satellite images periodictity are every 15 minutes. Minute by minute Global Horizontal Irradiance (GHI) forecasts for the next 3 hours. 


Obtain an optimum integration of the energy production of the plant to the grid

 

Weather forecast system up to 168 hours with meteorological models

Meteorological models make accurate forecasts up to 48 hours (2 days) with the possibility of extending that forecast up to 8 days for a specific location.

Hourly forecasts of different variables:

  • Solar radiation: GHI,DNI, solar elevation and cloud cover.
  • Other variables: temperature, precipitation, pressure, wind, etc.

Forecasts periodicity can be every 10 minte or hourly and information can be updated every 15 minutes, hourly or daily.

Optimize energy integration in daily markets and manage  intermittences with lolng-term forecasts

 

Energy Production forecast for the next 48 hours
