Reference data

This activity focuses on collection of high quality ground measurements which can be used as a reference in the benchmarking exercises. The measurements should be conducted with high accuracy, high frequency and traceable maintenance of the equipment. Data has been collected from the Baseline surface radiation network (BSRN), International Daylight Measurement programme (IDMP), the meteomedia […]

Point analysis

The maps give good insight into regional differences, however due to the coarse grid resolution (5 arc minutes) they smooth out local effects. Some of the integrated systems incorporate specific algorithms, such as an application of high-resolution Digital Elevation Model (DEM), which may increase the difference between results for a given site. Thus, for a […]

Phase space reconstruction

The first step in any analysis of chaotic data is to reconstruct an attractor (defined as set of points in phase space visited by a signal trajectory after transients are gone) from the data. Taken [6] suggested a method of phase space reconstruction that is known as the method of delays. This method consists of […]

MM5 Setup

The spatial configuration of the MM5 used in this work consisted in five nested domains and twenty four unevenly spaced sigma levels. The domains has an horizontal resolution of 71, 27,9, 3 and 1 km, respectively. The results of the last domain, of 1km resolution, were finally evaluated. Two-ways nesting was used to feed the […]

Benchmarking measures and rules

Benchmarking of solar radiation products can be done in different ways. If a kind of reference data is available which is assumed to be the “truth”, the modelled data sets can be compared and ranked how well they represent the reference data. But there is not always reference data available: e. g. for solar radiation […]

Analysis of the incoming solar radiation and other significant. parameters to estimate the solar resource at eight sites in Galicia (NW Spain)

Alberto Pettazzi, Jose Antonio Souto Gonzalez* Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Santiago de Compostela, Lope Gomez de Marzoa St., Campus Sur. 15782 Santiago de Compostela, SpainCorresponding author, ia. souto@,usc. es Abstract The evaluation of the solar resource in a region needs the characterization of different meteorological parameters. In this work, an analysis of global […]
