Solar Radiation Spatio-Temporal Analysis and Its Implications for Power Grid Management
Photovoltaic power has the temporal and spatial variability associated with the natural intermittency of solar resource. This variability results in potential threats to the grid since it must be able to accommodate safely the foreseeing variability. This chapter gives an overview of the variability scales and its quantification. The smoothing effect and other tools in power grid management are also described.
