Security of the energy supply is an important topic in energy field. It has two parts which are supply and demand. To ensure that demand is met, the supply at the specific time points has to be known or predicted. Supply is predicted by use of seasonal, yearly and regional information. The stream-flow dataset resolution is monthly and it supplies the yearly(More)
Integration of the wind power into the existing transmission grid is an important issue due to discontinuous and volatile behavior of wind. Moreover, the power plant owners need reliable information about day-ahead power production for market operations. Therefore, wind power forecasting approaches have been gaining importance in renewable energy research(More)
