Analysis of weather and electricity prices for solar thermal power applications

Concentrating solar power (CSP) is a technology that utilises mirrors (heliostats) to focuses the sun’s rays on a solar receiver to provide heat that can be stored and used for electricity generation.Control and planning of the use of stored energy would greatly benefit from a detailed understanding of the statistical characteristics of:direct solar irradiation (DNI)other weather variables (e.g. dust in air)electricity prices on the real-time market.The aim of this project will be to develop suitable statistical models that will enable …
