    Article Title: Application of numerical weather prediction in wind power forecasting: Assessment of the diurnal cycle This paper investigated the performance of different NWP models at forecasting the diurnal pattern of wind speeds at hub height in Germany. Analysis of data from German TSOs found that large biases tend to occur in the early morning. Output […]

  • EMS2017: Variations in wind-solar correlations across multiple datasets

    At EMS2017 in DCU, Dublin in September 2017 I presented a poster titled: Variations in wind-solar correlations across multiple datasets. This was part of the Energy Meteorology session (OSA2.6).  This examined the accuracy of 2 reanalysis datasets  (ERA-Interim and MERRA2) at replicating the correlation relationship between 10m wind speed and incoming shortwave radiation (SW). It was […]
