ESIF researchers are always on the move! Track our travels over the last two months

ESIF researchers are always on the move! Track our travels over the last two months

NREL, IBM, and the University of Texas at Dallas, co-authored "Short-term Global Horizontal Irradiance Forecasting Based on Sky Imaging and Pattern Recognition ." The paper details new methods for classifying data from Cloud Sky Imagers, and translating that information into accurate ultra-short-term solar power forecasts. Using this method, the authors demonstrated the ability to significantly improve on the one-hour-ahead forecasting persistence benchmark. This work was supported by the DOE's Solar Energy Technology Office-Systems Integration Program. NREL and Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) engineers co-authored "Network Reduction Algorithm for Developing Distribution Feeders for Real-time Simulators ." This paper describes a newly developed method for adapting distribution feeder models for use in hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) experiments. Using this method, a full feede...
