Application: Techniques for forecasting solar power generation (Patent ID: US20230353090A1)

The patent filed by Itron Inc. describes techniques for forecasting solar power generation by determining configuration parameters of a photovoltaic (PV) installation, selecting a prototype PV installation based on these parameters, generating a clear-sky solar power generation level for the prototype installation, and scaling this level to estimate the clear-sky solar power generation for the actual PV installation. The method involves selecting the prototype installation closest in size or operational characteristics to the actual installation, using parametric models or insolation levels to determine clear-sky power generation, and adjusting for environmental factors or the number of solar panels in the installation.

The patent also covers the use of computer-readable media storing program instructions for executing the forecasting method, including determining system characteristics, selecting a prototype solar power generation system, generating clear-sky solar power levels based on models or solar radiation, and modifying the levels based on environmental factors or the number of solar panels. Additionally, a forecasting system is described, comprising memory storing instructions and processors configured to determine configuration parameters of solar panels, select a prototype installation, generate clear-sky solar power output, and estimate the output for the entire set of solar panels by scaling based on the number of panels or modifying based on environmental factors. These techniques aim to improve the accuracy of solar power generation forecasts by considering various installation-specific parameters and environmental conditions.
