— It is shown that the " intelligent " controllers which are associated to the recently introduced model-free control synthesis may be easily implemented on cheap and small pro-grammable devices. Several successful numerical experiments are presented with a special emphasis on fault tolerant control.
Electricity production via solar energy is tackled via short-term forecasts and risk management. Our main tool is a new setting on time series. It allows the definition of " confidence bands " where the Gaussian assumption, which is not satisfied by our concrete data, may be abandoned. Those bands are quite convenient and easily implementable. Numerous… (More)
This communication is devoted to solar irradiance and irradiation short-term forecasts, which are useful for electricity production. Several different time series approaches are employed. Our results and the corresponding numerical simulations show that techniques which do not need a large amount of historical data behave better than those which need them,… (More)
