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 

MOS 

MOS (Model output statistics)  is the technique of post-processing the output from numerical weather forecast models using statistics of local historical or actual weather measurements. The MOS service substantially improves the accuracy of the historical and forecast data for temperature, humidity, wind speed and radiation (other variables can be specified on request).
