SANDY Forecast Service: Photovoltaic Production Forecast without Explicit Measurements
Knowing what to expect completely without integrated measurement
The economic efficiency of Photovoltaic systems is significantly determined by the amount of the self-consumption. It can be actively increased when power consumers or battery storages are incorporated. But how can the increase of the self-consumption be planned without knowing when the Photovoltaic system will delivery a sufficient amount of power?
The SANDY “Photovoltaic Production Forecast without integrated measurement” makes it possible to predict the quarter hourly yield of a Photovoltaic system without integrated production counter! to be expected up to the end of the following day. This forecast incorporates production data from comparable systems and the local weather forecast. The economic potential of self-produced energy is thereby fully exhausted.
System-specific characteristics, such as South orientation, roof pitch, location and maximum output are taken into account in the prognosis model. In addition to private users, business operations or network operators, the SANDY “Photovoltaic Production Forecast” can also be used for large open areas to optimize energy commercialization.
