Clear-Sky Solar Prediction: First Test-Results

Since it's currently winter in central Europe, it's the perfect time to evaluate the Unified Clear-Sky Solar output Prediction Model for its feasibility/validity. After bringing the VFCC online, it was a simple task to ship prediction metrics and reference measurements into influxdb and create a couple of dashboards to create meaningful graphs to evaluate its performance very easily.

Project Release: UCSSPM

The Unified Clear-Sky Solar output Prediction Model is an open-source clear-sky prediction model, incorporating math algorithms based on latest research by the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers and a few veteran but still valid and publicly available NOAA/NASA computations. It has been around for a while but received a major revision, code refactoring and got bumped to primary project status, since it's becoming an essential tool in predicting…

Unified Clear-Sky Solar output Prediction Model

Using the sun as a sustainable energy source isn't really a new invention. Plants have been relying on it for millions of years and have developed and optimized the process of photosynthesis over a very long bio-evolutionary period. Almost everybody appreciates the comfort, when it's warm and the sun is shining but we very often forget how hard our ability to actually survive as a species, is linked to solar output:
