Data mining for prediction of wind farm power ramp rates
2008 IEEE International Conference on Sustainable Energy Technologies, ICSET 2008, November 24, 2008 - November 27
In this paper, multivariate time series models are built to predict the power ramp rate of a wind farm. The power changes are predicted at ten-minute intervals. Multivariate time series models are built with data-mining algorithms. Five different data-mining algorithms are tested using data collected at a wind farm. The support vector machine regression algorithm performed best of the five algorithms studied in this research. It provided predictions of the power ramp rate for a time horizon of 10 to 60 minutes. The boosting tree algorithm selected predictors enhancing the prediction accuracy. The data used in this research originated at a wind farm of over 100 turbines. The test results of various models are presented in the paper. Suggestions for future research are provided. 2008 IEEE.
