Forecasting of solar irradiance will become a major issue in the future integration of solar energy resources into existing energy supply structures. As far as short-term time horizons (up to 2h) are concerned, satellite data are a high quality source for information about radiation with excellent temporal and spatial resolution. Due to the strong impact of cloudiness on surface irradiance the description of the temporal development of the cloud situation is essential for irradiance forecasting… Expand
