In today’s dynamic energy landscape, accurate forecasts are crucial for optimizing operations, managing costs, and ensuring grid stability. However, traditional methods for monitoring forecast performance can be time-consuming, manual, and lack the granularity needed to identify and address issues effectively. This is where Visplore’s forecast diagnostics come in, empowering you to gain deep insights into your forecast models with unprecedented precision.

The Challenge of Unreliable Forecasts:

  • Hidden Errors: Traditional methods often fail to detect subtle biases and drifts in forecast models, leading to inaccurate predictions.
  • Data Overload: Analyzing vast amounts of diverse data from various sources and assets can be time-consuming and labor-intensive.
  • Limited Root Cause Analysis: Identifying the specific factors influencing forecast errors remains a challenge, hindering corrective actions.
  • Reactive Decision-Making: Without timely insights, organizations react to deviations much later than they occur, potentially incurring significant costs.

Visplore: Your Diagnostic Partner for Precise Forecasts:

Visplore’s comprehensive set of diagnostics features equips you to:

  • Uncover Hidden Biases: Identify systematic errors and drifts in your forecast models through advanced statistical analysis and visualization techniques.
  • Simplify Data Exploration: Integrate and harmonize data from multiple sources, including SCADA systems, weather stations, and market data, for a holistic view.
  • Drill Down for Root Causes: Utilize robust correlation analysis and anomaly detection to pinpoint the exact factors influencing forecast deviations.
  • Proactive Decision-Making: Gain real-time insights into forecast performance and potential issues, enabling proactive adjustments and risk mitigation.


Real-World Example: Optimizing Power Generation Operation:

Imagine managing a large energy portfolio with diverse generation sources and varying demand patterns. Unexpected deviations from your forecasts can lead to:

  • Revenue loss due to balancing energy costs: Not providing the promised amount of power to the grid due to lack of prediction quality could infer significant costs.
  • Inefficient resource allocation: Suboptimal dispatch of generation assets due to unreliable forecasts.

With Visplore, you can:

  • Continuously monitor forecast performance: Track key metrics like mean absolute percentage error (MAPE) and root mean squared error (RMSE).
  • Identify outliers and anomalies: Quickly pinpoint periods where forecasts deviate significantly from actual values.
  • Analyze contributing factors: Drill down into specific influencing factors, such as weather fluctuations or unexpected equipment outages.
  • Optimize operation: Make informed decisions to adjust generation based on accurate forecasts and grid conditions.
