Cloud detection and tracking (CDT) is the most challenging problem in integrating solar energy into the smart grid. In this paper, we present a novel 3D cloud detection and tracking using images from three TSI (Total Sky Imager), and propose to incorporate history into a multi-layer cloud detection pipeline. Our pilot study shows that the new CDT(More)
—Variability of solar energy is the most significant issue for integrating solar energy into the power Grid. There are pressing demands to develop methods to accurately estimate cloud motion that directly affects the stability of solar power output. We propose a solar prediction system that can detect cloud movements from the TSI (total sky imager) images,(More)
