  • Publication number: 20190317244
    Abstract: A set of characteristics of a period is extracted from a forecast that is applicable to the period and a geographical area. From a repository, a set of historical data is selected corresponding to a historical period, the set of historical data including a historical forecast related to the geographical area, and an actual measurement of wind at a location in the geographical area, the set of historical data having a subset of the set of characteristics. From the set of historical data, a function is computed to represent a discrepancy between the historical forecast and the actual measurement over the historical period. A bias value is computed from the function. By applying the bias to a value in the forecast, an adjusted forecast is produced of winds at a wind turbine located at a location in the geographical area.

  • Patent number: 10261118
    Abstract: A subset of mobile devices is selected from a set of mobile devices located in a local area. From a mobile device in the subset, a magnetic measurement value obtained by performing a magnetic measurement is received. The magnetic measurement value comprises a change in a magnetic property of an immediate surrounding ambient environment of the mobile device. When the magnetic measurement corresponds to a deviation in a network condition in a portion of a network, the portion being located in the local area, a conclusion is output that the deviation is caused by an electromagnetic disturbance (EMD), where an effect of the EMD causes the magnetic measurement value. A notification including an indication of the EMD and an identification of the local area is generated.

  • Publication number: 20180276554
    Abstract: A method includes training a prediction model to forecast a likelihood of curtailment for at least one wind turbine. The prediction model is trained, by a processor system, using historical information and historical instances of curtailment. The method also includes forecasting the likelihood of curtailment for the at least one wind turbine using the trained prediction model. The method also includes outputting the forecasted likelihood.

  • Publication number: 20160328670
    Abstract: A method for predicting effects of climate change on supply chain performance includes receiving a global climate change model, a supply chain model, and at least one element model. A regional climate model modeling local weather is generated using the global climate model. A first supply chain performance is simulated using the supply chain model, the element model and the regional climate model. One or more extreme weather events are forecasted using the regional climate model. A second supply chain performance is simulated using the supply chain model and the forecasted extreme weather events. A score is determined for the supply chain performance.

  • Patent number: 9389630
    Abstract: A method for structuring an electric utility grid having traditional and renewable sources of electric power uses a weather forecasting system to determine, for a time interval, whether there are paths between all generating units and all consuming units satisfying certain constraints. The method includes computing a probable output for each of the generating units, both traditional and renewable, and computing a probable load for each of said consuming units for the time interval using both historical and weather forecast data. The method also includes determining the maximum load capacity of each segment in the utility grid for the time interval, the segments being the power lines making up the grid, and assigning the maximum load capacity of each segment to be a constraint therefor for the time interval and computing whether there are paths from each of the generating units to each of the consuming units for which the maximum load capacities will not be exceeded.

  • Publication number: 20140156232
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates generally to methods, systems and computer program storage devices for generating a flooding forecast. In one specific example, the present disclosure relates generally to methods, systems and computer program storage devices for generating a flooding forecast for an urban environment. In another example, a fully conservative model may be utilized that allows employing an unstructured hybrid grid (1-dimesional/2-dimensional) to represent an urban area, where the 1-dimesional grid is a simplified representation of part of the domain.
