An improved forecasting of weather changes will have consequences for the optimal specification and operation of renewable energy microgrids

This whitepaper from SteadySun discusses the advantages of solar/diesel hybrid applications.

In recent years, solar-diesel hybrid applications have become more and more interesting as the technology allowing for integrating photovoltaic (PV) energy into diesel power plants has improved considerably and PV investment costs have decreased.

Technically, the main challenges have arisen from the unstable energy generation of PV power plants and the fact that traditional diesel gensets are not very flexible and can hardly deal with loads of less than 30%-40%. The whitepaper shows how accurate forecasting can help address these challenges and boost hybrid system efficiencies.
