The high penetration photovoltaic power systems need to increase the power supply and demand balancing capability in electric power system. For the best use of balancing capability, highly accurate and reliable forecasting methods play a very important role in various time horizons from several hours-ahead to several days-ahead. An accurate and reliable forecasting method should be employed not only in power system but also in individual energy management system. According to the needs of forecasting in power system operations or individual system ...
