DeSoto Photovoltaic Variability Study
CX(s) Applied: B3.1, A9, B1.11
Offices(s): Golden Field Office
The Project goal would be for this site to be instrumented and used for research into photovoltaic (PV) variability and forecasting. Specifically, the goals of this project would be to: (1) Understand how PV plant output variability is impacted by change in the physical size and production capacity of a power plant; (2) Investigate the possibility of using satellite based information to estimate PV plant production especially larger plants comparable to the satellite footprint; and (3) Determine the minimum sensor configuration needed to model plant output and its variability.
