#solar Improved Forecasting Seen As Key To Increasing Variable Generation Penetration

says improved forecasting is "low-hanging fruit" for facilitating higher levels of variable generation capacity onto the grid. The report, entitled "Recent Trends in Variable Generation Forecasting and Its Value to the Power System," published in the June issue of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineer's Transactions on Sustainable Energy, says the greater the uncertainty between the forecasted and actual values, the less confident operators will be in relying on forecasts for maintaining system reliability, especially in high-penetration scenarios. The variable nature of the atmosphere (e.g., wind, temperature and irradiance) impacts the power output from wind and solar power generators, and it is also a factor in determining the load, the report says. Together, these factors account for the variability that must be balanced by the power system. According to...
