Forecasting electricity generation of wind turbines based on weather forecasts

Forecasting the electricity production of a wind turbine is both technically and financially a very important problem. In that respect, generation companies as well as the overall system operator is trying to make 24-hour and 6-hour generation forecasts based on weather forecasts. In this project, the team will be responsible for collecting raw data that can be used as the independent variables of a forecasting model to be developed. The task demands designing and evaluationg alternative forecasting models.For more information about wind-based generation forecasting, visit
