Title (EN) DISTRIBUTED SOLAR ENERGY PREDICTION IMAGING
(FR) IMAGERIE DE PRÉDICTION D'ÉNERGIE SOLAIRE DISTRIBUÉE
Abstract:
(EN) Concepts of distributed solar energy prediction imaging are described. In one embodiment, a solar forecast system includes a computing environment, a network, and an imaging device. Among other elements, the imaging device can include a wide-angle optical component, an imaging assembly, and a computing device. The computing device of the imaging device can capture an array of images using the imaging assembly, combine the array of images into a combined-resolution image, transform the combined-resolution image into a transformed image based on a calibration transformation matrix associated with the wide-angle optical component, identify and track cloud features in the transformed image, and generate a solar forecast using ray tracing based on the cloud features. The imaging device can also transmit the solar forecast to the computing environment via the network, and the computing environment can fuse solar forecast data from several imaging device into a distributed geographic area forecast.
(FR) L'invention concerne des concepts d'imagerie de prédiction d'énergie solaire distribuée. Dans un mode de réalisation, un système de prévision solaire comprend un environnement informatique, un réseau et un dispositif d'imagerie. Parmi d'autres éléments, le dispositif d'imagerie peut comprendre un élément optique à grand angle, un ensemble imageur et un dispositif de calcul. Le dispositif de calcul du dispositif d'imagerie peut capturer un réseau d'images à l'aide de l'ensemble imageur, combiner le réseau d'images en une image à résolution combinée, transformer l'image à résolution combinée en une image transformée sur la base d'une matrice de transformation d'étalonnage associée à l'élément optique à grand angle, identifier et suivre des caractéristiques de nuages dans l'image transformée, et générer une prévision solaire en utilisant un tracé de rayons sur la base des caractéristiques de nuages. Le dispositif d'imagerie peut également transmettre la prévision solaire à l'environnement informatique par l'intermédiaire du réseau, et l'environnement informatique peut fusionner les données de prévision solaire provenant de plusieurs dispositifs d'imagerie en une prévision de zone géographique distribuée.
