NREL Data Set Shows Clouds’ Effect on Solar Power System in 1-Second Intervals

NREL Data Set Shows Clouds’ Effect on Solar Power System in 1-Second Intervals

The extremely granular nature of the data set can provide utilities, solar PV system operators and project developers, researchers, forecasters and others empirical data in heretofore unobtainable detail on the effects clouds have on the power output and overall performance of solar PV installations. This can in turn enable them to construct models that can help them forecast electrical power output based on varying cloud conditions and help manage fluctuations in the flow of electricity.
