Designed specifically for market-based wind projects, Premium Wind Forecasting provides site-specific, accurate forecasts every ten minutes. Now you can effectively manage wind project operations while maximizing power production, improving integration, reducing imbalance charges, and trading in real-time, day-ahead, and other forward energy markets.
To provide the most accurate hour, day, and week-ahead predictions possible, Vaisala incorporates highly customized numerical weather prediction models, neural networks, and the latest in science and technology. To further enhance precision, real-time data feeds of observations from your site along with thousands of real-time surface observations are integrated directly into the forecast. Model output statistics (MOS) are also applied using historical power production data to statistically correct the forecast, significantly reducing overall forecast error and bias.
Because we stand by our accuracy, we include advanced verification tools showing our forecast against actual observations and other benchmark forecasts. These tools allow the user to evaluate exactly how our forecasts are performing, risk-adjust transactions, and access an unprecedented amount of historical forecast data.
Forecast information is delivered through a customizable dashboard interface, which includes easily interpreted graphics of wind production and other environmental conditions. Downloadable power and weather forecast data files offer easy integration with your own internal software and scheduling systems and can even be delivered through our API.
To ensure that your forecast is always performing at optimal levels, Vaisala provides a System Status Tool that gives you a synopsis of the current health of your project's real-time data feed. In addition, you can also schedule future outages directly in the interface for improved forecast accuracy.
