Stochastic generation of synthetic minutely irradiance time series derived from mean hourly weather observation data

Research article by Peter Taylor on 27 May 2015

Bright JM, Smith CJ, Taylor PG, Crook R Stochastic. (2015). Solar Energy, vol. 115, pp.229-242. Highlights A sun obscured methodology to generate 1 min resolution irradiance is proposed. A novel approach to generating cloud cover is presented. The use of multiple Markov chains offers improvement to resource modelling. Diurnal okta number variability gives the largest transition […]
