Investigating the Correlation Between Wind and Solar Power Forecast Errors in the Western Interconnection: Preprint

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Wind and solar power generations differ from conventional energy generation because of the variable and uncertain nature of their power output. This variability and uncertainty can have significant impacts on grid operations. Thus, short-term forecasting of wind and solar generation is uniquely helpful for power system operations to balance supply and demand in an electricity system. This paper investigates the correlation between wind and solar power forecasting errors.
