Webinar: Forecasting Applications for Power Systems
February 7, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EST
Please join us for the first in a new series of webinars co-sponsored by the Utility Variable-generation Integration Group (UVIG) and NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL).
Date: Tuesday, February 7, 2017, 4:00 – 5:30 pm ET(2:00 – 3:30 MT).
Focus: Fundamentals of numerical weather prediction (NWP) models and their applications for power system operations.
Featured Speaker: Dr. Stan Benjamin of NOAA/ESRL
Additional Information: This talk is tailored to the interests of Independent System Operators (ISOs) and utilities who want to better understand the strengths and limitations of NWP for wind and solar forecasting. Dr. Benjamin will explain NOAA’s 13-km Rapid Refresh (RAP) and 3-km High Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) models, as well as an experimental 0.75-km nest of the HRRR that is currently being run in the Pacific Northwest to support the DOE-funded and NOAA-funded Wind Forecast Improvement Project Phase 2 effort.
Audience members will be able to ask questions of Dr. Benjamin following his presentation. UVIG President Mark Ahlstrom will also moderate a panel discussion with industry experts Skip Dise (Clean Power Research) and Justin Sharp (Sharply Focused) to address questions and provide added context about how NWP models are being used by the power industry in providing wind and solar plant output forecasts on time scales ranging from minutes ahead to days ahead.
