Solcast's PV modeling methodology and specifications

Understanding PV power output modelling, PV power forecasting and solar energy generation estimates.

Solcast employs a proprietary PV power model, based on a quadratic PV radiation to power conversion algorithm that is uniquely suited for machine learning applications. We have selected this approach, as our PV power products are designed to benefit from user PV power measurement data, which are uniquely specified for each data product.

Learn more about how we approach PV power modelling and where the PV power output estimates in our APIs come from. Read the detailed information here:
