Processing weather forecasts improves accuracy of predictions of wind energy output
In the study, comparisons were made of how various post-processing techniques affected the accuracy of output predictions for wind energy. Predictions had been based on weather forecasts.
The results showed that the simplest method, smoothing, improved the accuracy of wind power forecasts more than some of the more complex methods did.
