Solar report - Quality control of radiation measurements

Quality control of your observation data benchmarks your measurement layout. meteoblue checks the quality and consistency of your observation data. A detailed solar report with intuitive analytical graphics helps to understand the system performance:

  • local situation assessment,
  • regularity of measurements,
  • recommendations for error detection and correction.

Solar report - model validation for your site

solar report supports your system operation and power management decision with forecast accuracy assessments.

  • Monthly graphic comparison detects seasonal malfunction of your system or microclimatic forecast mismatch.
  • Daily analysis show every day forecast performance and system outages while the intraday graphics can detect time of day shadings.
  • Precision of forecast and possible measures for improvement.

Special services 

Satellite derived reference data 

Benchmark the performance of your solar system or measurement layout comparing it to satellite derived radiation data of the last days, months or years. Data can be accessed in real time via API with updates every 15 minutes. Furthermore we can provide you with historic time series of satellite observed radiation data of the last months or years.

Transmission 

The solar nowcasting information can be transmitted through the following methods: 

Format 

The solar nowcasting services can be delivered in the following format: 

  • png (solar maps
  • pdf (solar reports, special services)
  • csv (raw data)
