IEA PVPS Task 16 – All Sky Imagers Benchmarking

15 December 2022 - 14:00 - 15:30 GMT/UTC

In this webinar, the existing and advancing solar nowcasting techniques with the use of all-sky imagers (ASIs) are presented and evaluated. For this, a benchmarking exercise has been carried out, at CIEMATS’s Plataforma Solar de Almería (PSA) in southern Spain, focusing on state-of-the-art surface solar irradiance nowcastings derived from ASIs. The speakers will identify the strengths and the weaknesses of the implemented algorithms and evaluate the ASI-based nowcast performance under various cloud conditions, time horizons and against typical reference nowcast models. The analyses reveal the feasibility of ASIs to reliably nowcast GHI and estimate solar power at distant times or detect sudden GHI fluctuations.


The webinar will welcome the following presenters:

– Jan Remund – Meteotest (Switzerland)

– Bijan Nouri – DLR Institute of Solar Research (Spain)

– Stavros Logothetis  – University of Patras (Greece)

– Andreas Kazantzidis University of Patras – (Greece)
