Multi time scale wind speed forecasting

Renewable energy sources are intermittent sources of power and are highly dependent on weather and climatic conditions. Variations in power generation poses multiple operating constraints like requiring primary and spinning reserves, complicated power production planning, and balancing power etc. It also has commercial implications in terms of financial planning, cash flow and downtime scheduling etc. Forecasting of weather patterns can help plan long term and short term operations of wind turbines. State-of-the-art forecasts can also have a significant economic impact. ReNew Power owns and operates over 50 wind farms with installed capacity close to 3GW (as of January 2019). A reliable forecast system for each of the farms would add to robustness to financial planning at ReNew.
