Abstract

An overview of University of Arizona cooperative research efforts towards enhanced solar powerprediction over PV system operational lifetime is provided. Integration of established research programs in power forecasting (including irradiance and irradiance-to-power modeling) and indevice and system-level performance degradation studies offer new opportunities to address solar power prediction needs over short- and long-term time horizons.
