Improving Solar Power Forecasts Data-driven, Post-processing Approach

What is it about?

The approach improves the combined solar power forecasts The performance is evaluated over the entire year and compared with other techniques.

Why is it important?

Combining the forecasts sometimes come with the cost of capturing the sharp or extreme events. Therefore, this proposed post-processing is to improve the combined solar power forecasts in terms of the ramp events as well.

I think the solar power forecasts, especially the ramp events forecasting is challenging and valuable to the electric system with high-level integration of PV solar energy resources.
