Probabilistic forecasting of the clear-sky index using Markov-chain mixture distribution and copula models
Two probabilistic forecasting models for the clear-sky index, based on the Markov-chain mixture distribution (MCM) and copula clear-Sky index generators, are presented and evaluated and show that the copula model generally outperforms the PeEn, while the MCM and QR models are superior in all tested aspects.
Solar Radiation Nowcasting Using a Markov Chain Multi-Model Approach
Solar energy has found increasing applications in recent years, and the demand will continue to grow as society redirects to a more renewable development path. However, the required high-frequency
Assessing Evidence for Weather Regimes Governing Solar Power Generation in Kuwait
With electricity representing around 20% of the global energy demand, and increasing support for renewable sources of electricity, there is also an escalating need to improve solar forecasts to
Generation Data of Synthetic High Frequency Solar Irradiance for Data-Driven Decision-Making in Electrical Distribution Grids
In this paper, we introduce a model representing the key characteristics of high frequency variations of solar irradiance and photovoltaic (PV) power production based on Clear Sky Index (CSI) data.
A Nested MCMC Method Incorporated With Atmospheric Process Decomposition for Photovoltaic Power Simulation
A nested Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) method incorporated with atmospheric process decomposition (APD) for PV power simulation is proposed and the results validate the proposed method's accuracy over previous ones in reproducing PV power characteristics.
A generative hidden Markov model of the clear-sky index
Clear-sky index (CSI) generative models are of paramount importance in, e.g., studying the integration of solar power in the electricity grid. Several models have recently been proposed with method


Polynomial probability distribution estimation using the method of moments
A procedure for estimating Nth degree polynomial approximations to unknown (or known) probability density functions (PDFs) based on N statistical moments from each distribution based on the method of moments is suggested.
