Abstract

One major challenge with integrating photovoltaic (PV) systems into the grid is that its power generation is intermittent and uncontrollable due to the variation in solar radiation. An accurate PV power forecasting is crucial to the safe operation of the grid connected PV power station. In this work, a combined model with three different PV forecasting models is proposed based on a rough set method. The combination weights for each individual model are determined by rough set method according to its significance degree of condition attribute. The three different forecasting models include a past-power persistence model, a support vector machine (SVM) model and a similar data prediction model. The case study results show that, in comparison with each single forecasting model, the proposed combined model can identify the amount of useful information in a more effective manner.
