What is it about?
This model assumes that the sky is in one of three cloudiness states: cloudy, clear, and scattered clouds. The model then learns the probabilities of jumping between these cloudiness states. After learning these probabilities an infinite number of time-series can be generated to simulate the solar yield in a location.

Why is it important?
This model formally connected the physical and mathematical representations of the clear-sky models, which was not done previously.
