MeteoCamera example

MeteoSatellite technology

Satellite imagery are able to show a wide space dimension of the clouds around the thermosolar plant. The periodicity of the satellite imagery allows a post-process of images to determine the movement of the clouds and then predict the direct normal irradiance up to 6 hours.

Satellite images can cover spaces below ~1 kilometer per pixel every 15 minutes giving this way accurate information for the prediction.
