On the Use of the Coefficient of Variation to measure Spatial and Temporal correlation of Global Solar Radiation

Abstract : In this work we perform a statistical analysis of global solar radiation measured at two sites, 38 km distant from, in Guadeloupe, French West Indies. We have established a correlation model based on the coefficient of variation assuming a time scale separation. The coefficient of variation is calculated on minutes interval with data measured at 1 Hz. This analysis highlight the dynamic correlation that can occur between measurements from two different sites with a time step of one second. From this results, knowing the coefficient of variation on a site we have established a new correlation model on this parameter for another site. A diagram linking the standard deviation on both sites, for a given coefficient of variation is proposed for correlated and non-correlated cases. More over this analysis put in evidence the existence of a threshold time under which there is no significant correlation. This model can be useful in choosing new sites of production not only for establishing correlation from on site to another, but also in optimizing the geographical distribution of the solar farms within the territory.
