Quantifying day-ahead solar energy forecast uncertainty
Quantifying day-ahead solar energy forecast uncertainty

Solar resource variability is an unavoidable natural characteristic that impacts solar power forecasting. However, its impact on forecast uncertainty can be reduced by providing information on predictive uncertainty, along with deterministic forecast values. Having...
