Precise Power Forecasts for Solar Electricity Servces
Precise forecasts for solar electricity
For the last years, the electricity generation from photovoltaic plants has been booming worldwide. The increasing importance confronts particularly the operators of solar power plants, grid operators and direct marketers with new challenges.
The online service, enercast, offers a power forecast, that is precise to the hour, for up to 72 hours. The forecast is based on weather forecasts of various European weather services.
enercast.de determines the actual quantity of solar energy that is fed in into the distribution- and transmission grids. To do so, the system accesses measurement data of various reference plants and extrapolates those to the total PV feed-in quantity, for the respective grid.
The precise feed-in quantities for plants without power measurements are calculated based on satellite-transmitted radiation data. Here, satellite-based information about the actual and individual levels of sun radiation in specific areas will be considered.
Determination of the target power capacity
enercast.de identifies power deficits of photovoltaic plants. Based on the measured energy yield, the operator can identify setbacks in the power curve and eliminate their sources. Consequentially, enercast.de is an effective tool for the supervision of the technical operability of a solar power plant.
Efficient & competitively priced
Being a modern web application, enercast.de doesn’t cause any sort of installation costs – the data is either delivered via web service or via e-mail. Therefore, the purchase of further hard- or software is not necessary.
The forecasts and extrapolations of enercast.de are provided in those formats that are required by the specific business processes.
