PROGNOSIS Project Funded – Job Opportunities

We are pleased to announce that our proposal “Intra-hour prediction of solar electricity generation from Photovoltaics (PROGNOSIS)” was selected for funding by SOLAR-ERA.NET. The consortium is comprised by the Cyprus University of Technology and Johnsun Heaters LTD from Cyprus and Instituto Valenciano de la Edificación (IVE) from Spain.

The concept of PROGNOSIS is related to the development of a dynamic data assimilation model for nowcasting solar irradiance and cloud coverage without using meteorological data. This can be achieved through the utilization of dynamic real-time electricity data from a dense multipoint network of grid connected Photovoltaics (PVs). The primary key novelty (patent pending) is that through the development of a dynamic flow map of the power output of the PVs, irradiance /clouds /aerosols /etc, not only over the PVs, but over whole regions/countries can be visualized and predicted with high accuracy.

If you are interested in working on the project or in a PhD in this topic, please email us at [email protected].
