Solar Radiation Forecasting Using Ad-Hoc Time Series Preprocessing and Neural Networks.

Abstract : In this paper, we present an application of neural networks in the renewable energy domain. We have developed a methodology for the daily prediction of global solar radiation on a horizontal surface. We use an ad-hoc time series preprocessing and a Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP) in order to predict solar radiation at daily horizon. First results are promising with nRMSE < 21% and RMSE < 998 Wh/m². Our optimized MLP presents prediction similar to or even better than conventional methods. Moreover we found that our data preprocessing approach can reduce significantly forecasting errors.
