Improved ECMWF forecasts of direct normal irradiance: A tool for better operational strategies in concentrating solar power plants

Francisco M. Lopes, Ricardo Conceição, Hugo G. Silva, Rui Salgado, Manuel Collares-Pereira To contribute for improved operational strategies of concentrating solar power plants with accurate forecasts of direct normal irradiance, this work describes the use of several post-processing methods on numerical weather prediction. Focus is given to a multivariate regression model that uses measured irradiance […]
